Another Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY – but instead of individual recognition, it’s all about club success!

This year, the Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY have celebrated riders of all ages and abilities and their success at various competitions across the country. Riders have been recognised for clean sweeping their races and taking out the top spot on the podium at their home track.

But this week’s wrap celebrates something a little different. The Cockburn BMX Club in southern Perth held their annual Cockburn Club Challenge, inviting fellow WA clubs to compete in a true team-based event.

Club president Leighton Pratt has emphasised how tired he is of BMX being an individual sport and he wanted to create a more team-based environment where riders could come together and ride for their clubs.

On Sunday, November 17, 227 entries were recorded and more importantly, had 12 clubs competing for the illustrious title as the 2019 Smarter than Smoking Cockburn BMX Club Challenge Champions.

Alongside the serious racing, there were many other categories that clubs competed in including tent decorations, novelty races for mums and dads that included the use of balloons, the number of club jerseys, and the number of sprockets and mini wheelers.

The club representation of challenge riders varied with the host club leading the charge with 51 riders, while the second largest was Byford at 29, and rounding out the top three was Westside with 32.

At the end of the day, it was Rockingham who picked up the bike frame trophy with 1192 points, while Cockburn finished second on 1169 and Byford third on 1147.

Leading the charge for Rockingham and finding the top spot on their respective podiums was:

  • Ashton Burton: 8-boy’s
  • Jack Malone: 9-boy’s
  • Declan McGhee: 11-boy’s
  • Jordan Callum: 15-boy’s
  • Dylan Callum: 17-29 men’s

Special mentions should go to Byford’s 13-girl’s trio of Sienna Sharp (first), Tamilee Spence (second) and Kelsey Morrow (third) who dominated the day to find themselves on the podium.

Rockingham and Cockburn also recorded the highest number of sprockets & mini wheelers with 19 apiece, while Collie BMX Club took out the best presented marquee.
