Katherine's own Big Rivers BMX club will look to keep growing this weekend with free bike maintenance and an open trial day.
This Saturday the club is holding a bike maintenance day to show interested residents how they can adapt their existing bike for BMX.
Then on Sunday the town is invited to come try out the sport with a 'Ride in2 BMX' day complete with coaches and demonstrations.
Often overshadowed by the larger team sports in Katherine, it may surprise residents to know the club already boasts elite level talent.
Nicky Thompson is one of Australia's premier female riders and says our town is blessed to have a 'professional-level' training track at the Katherine sporting fields.
"I've been fortunate enough to win my age and class for both the National series competitions so far this year," she said.
"In the NT titles I race against the men instead, I also play soccer and practice athletics and karate.
"But for me BMX is the biggest confidence boost, because it's a constant challenge to overcome your fears.
"In a team sport you have that crowd and can get lost a bit, where as BMX it's just you and the obstacles you need to overcome," Ms Thompson said.
At the other end of the experience scale, the club also features young kids determinedly learning the ropes such as 'seven going on eight' year-old Ryker Tessier.
"I like BMX because it makes you work hard," he said.
"I don't find it scary though.
"Some older people always help me so I'm seeing a lot of improvement," Ryker said.
When the Katherine Times visited the track, Ryker and others were being filmed and coached by 15-year-old Dylan Walters.
"It's different to rugby or something as an individual sport where it's only about improving yourself, similarly to a martial art like Judo," he said.
"I've been riding for three years now though and I come down here to see friends, I really enjoy the coaching element.
"You're not competing for spots in a team, you're just here to improve and see the others you ride with improve as much as possible too," Dylan said.
It is this full-club approach to support and coaching which president Sue Sinclair says is her favourite aspect of being part of the club.
"We have two-year-olds on balance bikes learning and we have riders over 60 years old," she said.
"We've got the NT's top coach here but also all the experienced riders pitch in to help others improve.
"In the BMX community of the NT Katherine is already a premier destination, as shown by the fact we're scheduled to have the NT titles here in September.
"We have about 50 members but we'd love for that to keep increasing, so come down on the weekend and see what it's all about," Ms Sinclair said.
