A fresh dose of BMX racing occurred over the weekend and this week’s Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY takes us to West Coast’s Mandurah.
A mammoth amount of racing went down over the weekend as 37 events played host to thousands of shredders of all ages and abilities, each sharing one common reason… to race.
This week’s Tales from the Berm heads to the Mandurah in WA as the club located just south of Perth held the eighth round of the 2019 BMXWA Reliance Partners Insurance Brokers Super Series on Sunday, September 8.
Over 400 riders took to the track and participated across mini wheelers, sprockets, 20inch novice and expert, cruiser and the superclass.
The 10-round series commenced in Westside on February 10 and will conclude at the Byford strip on November 3 as it showcases WA talent up and down the state. With the competition slowly drawing to a close, riders were pitching their last efforts into attaining that respective series title.
Even though there are titles on the line, winning isn’t everything when it comes to BMX and simply being a part of the action should be celebrated just as much as the riders who finish atop the podium.
The participation riders partaking in the mini wheeler and sprocket categories were a highlight for the day. In total, there were 113 on the Mandurah strip and all came away with a healthy dose of racing for their appetite.
While all riders on the day should be congratulated for being part of a fantastic event, the successful shredders who found the top of the podium should also be recognised.
The clean sweeping riders were:
It was exciting to see 2018 world champion Jordan Callum back on the bike after his serious injury. The Rockingham rider has had many notable achievements this year, winning the national title for both the 20inch and the cruiser, as well as claiming the 2019 Sam Willoughby Medal amongst the highlights on his list.
We look forward to seeing Callum’s future on the bike and eagerly await his return to the world stage to compete for another world title.
Like many events, the superclass generated a great deal of excitement for onlookers and on show for them were some of WA’s most exciting stars!
Claiming the men’s superclass podium was Wanneroo’s 2018 elite men’s national series champion Bradley Game, who beat home club mate Dylan Bennetts (second) and rising star Corey Taylor from Woorree Park (third).
The women’s superclass had a plethora of WA’s talent on show and it was Westside’s Lilyanne Croft who claimed the top spot in front of the Hills’ riders Felicity Mann (second) and Catherine Hopkins (third).
