The City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jam was back for its third year at i98fm Illawarra Convoy on November 19. Thousands massed to watch many of Australia’s biggest names in FMX throw down at the region’s biggest charity gig.

Just a day before the world class fmx stage was under rainwater, but Peter Yates and the Yatcon Civil crew pulled out all the stops to make sure the event went ahead for the kids.

Our resident FMX fanatic Justin “Bushy” Bush mastered the mic while the riders owned the arena. The talent list was on point with Robbie Maddison, Chucky Norris, Luke McNeill, Tom Robinson, Cory Bozzola, Alex Bucholtz, James Martin, Jake Bowen, Dylon Mcdonald, Scott Perry, Ben Richards, Tom Richards, Codie Rooney, Will Schwarz and Oliver Hutchinson.

Fans lined up to receive a personally signed copy of Maddo’s children’s book. There were Skullcandy giveaways, mini-bike races, a best whip comp and monster FMX moves. The energy in the crowd was electric, photographers took position and the riders delivered.

Robbie Madison returned for his second year to the City Coast Motorcycles Yatcon Civil FMX Jam.

Spreading that Convoy Spirit

For three years City Coast Motorcycles has supported the region’s favourite community charity – i98fm Illawarra Convoy – through our world class FMX Show with Yatcon Civil.

In 2017 we took a step up, additionally fundraising as a lead bike team with David Drain of Kembla Heights Bowlo. Fun events held throughout the year, such as the Convoy Fall Ball, Convoy Demo & Classic Show ‘N Shine and Convoy Bowls Off as well as corporate donations took our total to $17,242.

On Sunday November 19, we rode for baby Emerson, who sadly passed away at the tender age of six months and 27 days from Type A SMA, a terminal spinal condition.
