On the cards over the weekend were many notable BMX events such as the fifth round of the Oxley Cycles Shootout, a Super Saturday at Proserpine BMX Club, the Warrnambool Classic and round two of the WA Super Series. But catching the spotlight this week was the 2019 ADCON ACT BMX Championships at the Tuggeranong BMX Club.

Over 500 entries were recorded from the weekend with many outstanding results meaning riders came away with an ACT plate in their hands, some with even two!

Saturday, March 25, held the cruiser riders accompanied by the sprocket and mini wheeler participation classes. A tally of riders notched together some impressive performances making their mark on the day.

Below are the winning riders.

  • Zane Bourke: 8-10 boy’s cruiser (Maitland Tenambit BMX Club)

Also touching the track on Saturday were the superclass competitors who received a double dose of finals over the weekend. Saturday’s results saw Lake Macquarie’s Nathaniel Rodway on top of the men’s pile, while Southlake/Illawarra’s Leanna Curtis took out the women’s.

It was a similar scenario on Sunday for the superclass riders as the NSW duo mirrored their actions from the previous day to cross the finish line first yet again.

Coincidently, this pair have produced these results before at the Tuggeranong track when the sixth round of the 2018 national series took place there.

Take a look at their finals from that day below!

Joining the superclass field were the other 20inch riders as well as the open wheel competitors. Rodway and Curtis weren’t the only ones to go back-to-back over the weekend.

Adding to their ACT plate stack after their success in cruisers on Saturday, were Robert Slatter (30+ masters open wheel), Daniel Morris (17-24 men), Isla Basa (10-girl’s), Courtney Oostendorp (15-girl’s) and Melanie Gibson (30-34 women).

Gibson’s double up mirrored her results from the 2018 national championships and puts the experienced Canberra-based rider on track to win back to back Australian titles when the nationals head to Shepparton from May 20-25.
