The 2019 UCI BMX World Championships at Heusden-Zolder in Belgium is less than a month away and momentum is beginning to pick up for TeamAUSBMX, especially now that BMXA has released the 108 strong team of riders joining the 12 championship riders representing Australia as part of the Australian Cycling Team. (Read about them HERE).

Helping to fly the Aussie flag are the 14 world plate holders from last year’s event in Baku, Azerbaijan, which includes world no.1s Fraser Vaughan (10-boy’s this year) from Pine Rivers BMX Club, Tama Onekawa (11-boy’s) from Callide Valley, Kira Hill (15-girl’s) from Nerang and Portia Eden (12-girl’s) from Cairns.

Also racing with a ‘W’ plate firmly attached to their whips are 11-boy’s riders #W2 Bailey Mills from Bayside and #W3 Kyne Baird from Terrigal, #W3 Teya Rufus (13-girl’s) from Maryborough, #W3 Sandy Cameron (40+ women’s cruiser) from Penrith, #W4 Joshua Jolly (13-14 boy’s cruiser) from Knox, Geelong’s #W5 Cameron Gatt (12&under boy’s cruiser), #W6 Noah Elton (13-boy’s) from Terrigal and #W7 Callum Howarth (14-boy’s) from Nerang.

It wouldn’t be a world championship without the addition of one Thomas Tucker, who is setting out to claim his seventh consecutive world 20” challenge title since he claimed his first in the 8yrs event in Auckland in 2013.

The Pine Rivers star will also be competing in the 13-14 boy’s cruiser with the multiple world champion the #W5 plate holder from last year.

Joining Tucker with two world plates in Zolder is Clarence Valley’s Tahlia Marsh. Since Baku, Marsh has been exhibiting her ‘W’ plates and will be a contender when she competes in the 16-girl’s (#W6) and the 13-16 girl’s cruiser (#W5).
