Check out all the results around the Frankston BMX track during the second round of the BMX Australia National Series.

Almost 600 riders took to the track for round two of the BMX Australia National Series and it wasn’t just the likes of Olympic champion Connor Fields impressing the huge crowd in the amphitheatre that is Frankston BMX Club.

While Fields showed his undoubted class winning the premier elite men’s event in fine style, there were 49 races contested in the final block of the day – 45 of them in the challenger, masters, cruiser and sprocket classes.

Leading the way was multiple world champion Thomas Tucker (Pine Rivers) who took the double in the 13 years boy’s and 13-14 cruiser event. Tucker also won the 13 years boy’s in round one at Penrith.

Not to be outdone was Sunbury’s James Lautier who claimed the 17-24 20” event and the 17-24 cruiser double for the second national series round in a row.

Others to catch the eye throughout the finals session included:

  • Geelong BMX Club duo Brett Creswell (35-39 years) and Cameron Gatt (10yrs boy’s and 8-10rs cruiser), who backed up their victories from Penrith.

 

  • Pine Rivers pair Kiana Botfield (16yrs girl’s) and 1A plateholder Fraser Vaughan (9yrs boy’s) who also won their second round of the season
  • South Australian national champs Imogen Healy from Tea Tree Gully and Shae Archbold of The Cove, who both made it two from two this year. The same feat was achieved by fellow Australian champion Shannon Petre (15yrs girl’s) and 8yr old girl’s winner Amelia Stichbury from Tuggeranong.
  • New Zealanders Bennett Greenough (15yrs boy’s) and Tasman Wakelin (16yrs boy’s) made their second successful trip across the Tasman this season by marking a second straight series win.
  • Experienced Greg Kelly (Knox BMX Club) won the 50+ 20” event and 50+ cruiser race.
  • Dirk Winter (Suncoast Hinterland BMX Club) won the men’s 25-29 years event to continue his two year undefeated national series run, while Letitia Weatherhead (Bayside BMX) won the 30+ women’s event for a second consecutive national series event.
