While the biggest BMX event on the world stage is about to commence this week in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium, 18 events around Australia held their own BMX meet last weekend with some riveting racing.
Notable events included the Hinterland Open Day, club racing at Southern City and round six of the winter series at Tea Tree Gully. But catching the focus of this week’s Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY was the Burdekin Cup in Queensland.
Just under 200 riders took to the strip on Saturday across 37 classes. In addition to the standard racing categories, the Burdekin Cup was also up for grabs for the 13-years old boys and girls.
Lifting the cup after a seven-moto point system was Bill Woodward from the Island BMX Club. Coming in second was Walkerston’s Connor Parish, while Matthew Nielsen from Atherton picked up third.
Woodward not only lifted the cup, but also picked up the one-spot in his own 13-boy’s 20inch class. Joining the Island rider on the top of their respective podiums were the following.
