Rounds 3 and 4 of the Cycling Ireland National BMX Series took place on the 28th and 29th May 2022, hosted by Lisburn BMX and attended by over 120 riders on both days. 

The track was in great condition with recent additions of higher jumps and a longer tabletop, leading to a faster and more technical track for all those taking part. 

As with Rounds 1 and 2 at Ratoath BMX club, Lisburn BMX Club offered an extremely warm welcome to everyone with a great atmosphere in the glorious summer sun.

Morning practice and the first Moto race of the afternoon passed successfully, however an accident for one of the Masters 30+ category riders during the second Moto race meant that the on-site ambulance had to be dispatched. With no replacement available, the decision was made to cancel the remaining races on the grounds of safety for all riders. 

In the SuperClass category Matthew Campbell maintained his strong opening form from Rounds 1 and 2 with the overall all win in Round 3, followed by impressive form in Round 4 before racing had to unfortunately be cancelled. 

Tommy Magnenat was pushing Campbell all the way, and took second in SuperClass after making the most audacious of saves at the end of Round 3. 

Charlie Jackson was third overall in Round 3, again with some very tight racing against Campbell and Magnenat.
