Cycle Speedway is the name of the sport but the Findon Skid Kids
were best known for their Trick Riding Display Team which appeared with great distinction at numerous South
Australian & Victorian Country Shows and also local school
In 1973 and 1978 the Team was invited to perform in front of 43,00
people per show at the Sydney Royal Easter Shows.
Highlights of the Display Team were the 7 bike pyramid with 26
riders and the World Famous Fire-Jump. The Display team has appeared many times on Australian TV and also on
the European Pay TV cannels. All good things come to an end and the Display Team was abandoned in 1996

The Findon Cycle Speedway Cub is Australia's oldest Cycle
Speedway and Skid Kid Club.
The club was formed on February 26th 1958 by Mick Harley who was
just 15 years old .
He started racing when he was 12 years old at the Croydon Aces and
then decided to start his own club on vacant land owned by the local Council.
With help from the then City of Woodville Council a track was
graded and a new club began.
The Club is now regarded as having the best facilities and
track in the World.
This has been achieved through the dedication of past and
present members who believed that the club could achieve this honour.
