David has been watching TV outside of his home country for over 12 years. In addition to his streaming expertise, he has a wealth of experience in watching sports and documentaries, having spent many years following these genres. He is an avid fan of The Detectorists and Blue Planet, and also has a keen interest in English football.

This year, for the first time, AusCycling has revolutionised the biggest events in Australian BMX racing.

Gone is the old format of National Rounds and a National Cup to be replaced by the new BMX National Series: Five rounds in which the best BMX racers from across the country and beyond compete at some of the biggest and best BMX venues across the country.

For BMX fans, and cycling fans more generally, this is a must-watch event. I’ve been following BMX racing for some time now, and for my money, the Australian competitions are among the very best in the world.

Little wonder then that so many Aussie cycling fans, as well as those from further afield, are keen to tune in and watch the action.

Quick Guide: How to watch AusCycling BMX National Series

  1. Sign up for ExpressVPN.
  2. Download the VPN app, sign in, and select ‘Australia‘.
  3. Go to SBS Cycling Central.
  4. Start watching the AusCycling BMX National Series.

But the AusCycling BMX National Series isn’t being broadcast outside Australia, which means any Aussie ex-pats or overseas fans are out of luck if they want to watch.

All is not lost, though. I was determined to watch and have uncovered a neat trick that can enable you to watch the AusCycling BMX National Series from anywhere in the world.

And in this guide, I am going to tell you everything you need to know to do just that.

What channel is AusCycling BMX National Series on?

The AusCycling BMX National Series is being broadcast exclusively on the SBS Cycling Central channel.

This is the home of cycling coverage in Australia and a channel that all cycling fans will want to be able to access in any case. Its exclusive coverage of the AusCycling BMX National Series makes it a must-watch channel.

But because it is only available to Australian viewers, if you want to tune in to the AusCycling BMX National Series or anything else on SBS Cycling Central, you will need to find a way to unblock it outside Australia.

How do I watch AusCycling BMX National Series where I am?

To watch the AusCycling BMX National Series on the SBS Cycling Central Channel outside Australia, you will need to use a Virtual Private Network or VPN app.

You may have come across VPNs as online privacy and security tools, but for the purposes of watching the AusCycling BMX National Series, it is how a VPN works that matters rather than its primary function.

It basically lets you redirect your internet traffic through an external server. This masks your real location and replaces it with the location of the server.

So, if you choose a VPN server located in Australia, you will be able to make SBS Cycling Channel think that’s where you are and, hey presto, you will be able to watch the AusCycling BMX National Series right where you are.

Where to get a VPN

At this point in the guide, you are probably wondering where you need to look to get a VPN from.

The answer, unsurprisingly, is online, but there is a bit more to it than that because there are so many VPNs online that are unsuited for this job.

As an expat myself, I have tested many VPNs over the years and can vouch for just a few that are ideal for unblocking streaming services like the SBS Cycling Channel.

ExpressVPN is the pick of the bunch. It has the fastest speeds of any VPN I have tested, which means no buffering while you are streaming the AusCycling BMX National Series. This is essential if you don’t want to miss any of the action.

It also comes with apps for all the most popular streaming devices, making it super easy to use. There are lots of Australian servers capable of unblocking the SBS Cycling Channel, and there is a 30-day money-back guarantee, which means there is lots of time to try before you buy too.

NordVPN and CyberGhost VPN are also worth looking at, with CyberGhost VPN especially good for VPN newbies. But neither is as good as ExpressVPN, in my opinion.

How to stream the AusCycling BMX National Series worldwide

  2. Download the ExpressVPN app from either your app store or the ExpressVPN website.

  4. Connect ExpressVPN to an Australian server.

Who to look out for in the AusCycling BMX National Series

The AusCycling BMX National Series will consist of a number of different classes.

After securing victory in all three Western Australia State Series events this year, Matthew Blake from Bunbury is expected to be strong in the Superclass Men competition.

Similarly, Matty Tidswell from The Cove and Noah Elton from San Remo, with their impressive early showings in the State Series events in South Australia and New South Wales, are likely to be strong contenders as well.

Keep an eye too on Jesse Asmus from Nerang, the 2022 National Cup silver medallist, while another one of the frontrunners is Max Cairns from Park Orchards, the 2022 Superclass National Champion, who transitioned to full-time BMX racing over the past six months.

Cairns told the AusCycling website, “My goal is to win the National Series, like I won the Nationals. And then the goal is to keep the ball rolling and do the domestic races as well as the overseas stuff.”

Summary

The AusCycling BMX National Series is the exciting new Australian national BMX series of events that no fans of BMX racing, or cycling more generally, will want to miss.

It is an amazing schedule of events across the country featuring some of the best Australian BMX riders in the sport, as well as some from further afield as well.

As a cycling fan myself, I know how much fun this will be. But I also know fans outside Australia will be frustrated that they can’t watch live.

Except they can if they use a VPN.

Just ExpressVPN website, download the app, and connect to an Australian server. Then Google SBS Cycling Central and enjoy watching.

ExpressVPN’s great speeds and useable apps will make this a breeze, and you can enjoy the AusCycling BMX National Series from anywhere in the world. If you find out it’s not for you, just take advantage of their 30-day money back guarantee.
