BMX Rider: Matthew Tidswell

Matthew Tidswell is a talented, young BMX rider from South Australia who started his competition career at age 6. Now, at just 16, through passion and hard-work, Matty has improved on his skill and speed. This has resulted in him taking home 3 “A” plates and making the semi-finals in all national events.

At the 2017 Nationals in Brisbane, Matty was one (of only 3 in his age group) to break the 40 second barrier. This outstanding achievement has prompted him to take the next step in his mission to compete at the 2020 Olympics.

Hearing of this young lad’s commitment and dedication to this hefty goal, was enough for Australian Outdoor Living to get on board and see what we could do.

Through our contribution, Matty is now able to attend the 2017 World Championships in Rock Hill, North Carolina, USA. He will have the chance to fulfil his dream of bringing home a World Championship Plate.

Australian Outdoor Living would like to wish Matty all the best in Rock Hill and hope to be cheering him on at the Olympics in 3 years’ time.
