Two days of BMX racing in a row? Yes please!
Coming hot off a spectacular stage of the 2019 BMXA BAD BOY National Series, The Cove BMX Club in Adelaide played host to yet another event the following day, the fifth round of the 2019 BMXSA State Series and the Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY covers all the angles.
Similar to stage five of the national series, around 300 entries were recorded on Sunday August 25, as riders from around Australia were yearning for more action, which the state series round provided perfectly.
Following on from their remarkable success on the national series stage, some riders carried on their winning form to bag yet another first place finish.
Penrith’s Timothy Moylan was a standout performer winning the 35+ masters open wheel class two days running and adding a 35-39 men’s win as well.
Happy Valley’s Preston Murray continued his hot form in 2019 with yet another top spot in the 12-boy’s class. The #4A plate holder flew through his national series final and was undoubtedly one to watch on Sunday.
Continuing to make a name for herself is Tea Tree Gully’s 12-girl’s national champion Imogen Healy. Wanting to push her talent to the limit, the star rider lined up on the gate alongside Murray and the other 12-boy’s riders and picked up second place.
Take a look at her story with fellow SA rider, Shae Archbold.
Successfully flying the flag for Gawler BMX Club on The Cove’s strip was Emma McDermott in the 9-girl’s category. Winning her class on Saturday, McDermott was at it again on Sunday claiming the top spot in the 8-9 girl’s category.
While the national series winners from the day before doubled up, the host club not only produced a stunning strip, but some of their own riders found a top three spot on the podium for their respective classes.
Riley Lawrence claimed the 9-boy’s win on Saturday, but narrowly missed out on the first place the next day, finishing second.
Jordan Bailey in the 11-boy’s also picked up a second place while Jed Keenihan in the 13-boy’s, Addison Cattonar in the 10-girl’s, Steve Ball in the 35+ men’s and Max Freeman in the 10-12 boy’s cruiser picked up third.
Finding the top of the podium on their home track was Knox Liebelt in the 8-13 novice boy’s/girl’s class, while another leading the charge on the day was home dirt hero Shane Rosa.
The 2015 junior elite time trial world champion was gunning after Rio Olympic finalist Anthony Dean in a spectacular superclass final on Saturday but settled for second.
Come Sunday, Rosa was eager to get the top spot in the superclass and he managed it with Happy Valley’s 15-year-old prodigy Joel Marsh in second and Eastfield’s Bodi Turner in third.
Kiana Botfield from Pine Rivers had a very similar story to Rosa. The Queensland rider also finished second on Saturday and claimed first the next day in front of Tea Tree Gully’s Marisa Peressoni and Happy Valley’s Georgia Potter.
