Enjoying Easter were many members throughout the country and the 70 riders from the Northern Territory who competed in the first round of BMXNT’s Grand Tour at the Red Centre BMX Club were among them.

As one of the biggest BMX events in the NT, riders from across the state took part in the action across the Easter long weekend.

There were five BMX clubs who battled it out and it was the host club who took the most chocolates. Of the 24 classes on offer, Red Centre riders took 15 of them, standing tall on the podium and starting their 2019 Grand Tour series in the best possible way.

They were:

  • Troy Miller: 8-boy’s
  • Cooper Drew: 9-boy’s
  • Jye Harvey: 10-boy’s AND 8-12 boy’s cruiser
  • Nate Harvey: 13-boy’s
  • Sarah Peace: 13-girl’s
  • Daniel Brooks Jnr: 14-boy’s
  • Jason Peace: 16-boy’s
  • Damian Peace: 17-29 men’s
  • Jade Polglase: 17-29 women’s
  • Stephanie Molloy: 17-29 women’s cruiser
  • Robert Peace: 40-49 men’s open wheel
  • Michael Smith: 50+ men’s open wheel

A trio of Red Centre riders battled it out in the men’s superclass event with Antonio Belotti taking on the Polglase duo of Dean and Robert. Belotti came away with the win with Dean in second and Robert in third.

The superclass winner didn’t stop there, also bagging a win in the 13-16 boy’s cruiser to wrap up a successful day.

The Red Centre riders weren’t the only competitors to find the top spot on the podium with Nhulunbuy’s Georgie Luff (11-girl’s), Zane Henderson (12-boy’s), Lauren Winter (12-girl’s) and Nicole Savage (40-49 women’s open wheel) also getting a share of the success.

Jingili’s Taylah Buganey (9-girl’s) and Anthony Sues (30-39 men’s open wheel) were also on the winners list as well as the hosts of the fourth stage of BMXA’s 2019 national series, Satellite City, being represented by Zahara Fennell in the 10-girl’s and Tait Gleeson in the 11-boy’s.
