Riders from across the country came together for what is truly a national series.
The second stage of the 2019 BMXA BAD BOY National Series was very similar to its predecessor – the racing was fast, the spectators were loud and there was a serious thirst for BMX action.
That thirst was from the 330 odd riders, joined by their passionate supporters, who competed at the Westside BMX Club last weekend for the second round of challenge series, third for the superclass, and the first UCI spectacle of the year.
Riders from as far as field as North Queensland took part and countless stories were added to the history books.
Here’s are some of those stories as well as a recap from both of the days.
Taking the chocolates were a long list of riders who produced outstanding results.
On day one, the challenge riders got their round underway with the first three motos. Read that report HERE!
On the same day, superclass action began and finished with Kai Sakakibara and Kiwi rider Rebecca Petch crossing the line first. Read that HERE!
Sunday showed similar results for the pro riders, both Sakakibara and Petch going back to back in the UCI round, not only gaining the top spot in the series, but also earning their countries some important Olympic qualification points and themselves some UCI rankings points. Read that HERE!
Using their home dirt advantage, the Westside riders showed the visitors who was boss by bagging a number of first place podiums – you can read that HERE!
Every single final from the weekend has been uploaded onto the BMXA YouTube channel – you can watch ALL of them by clicking HERE!
Helping the BMXA team to capture the action was the official photographer, Get Snapt. Mel has been very busy uploading hundreds of images from the weekend and you can see them all by clicking HERE.
Below are a couple of our favourites.
Get Snapt wasn’t the only one to capture the weekend and below are a some of the BMXA family members who got on social and tagged #BMXANS.
