This week’s BAD BOY Weekend Wrap takes us to Queensland and Victoria for exciting BMX racing. Wet weather was on show, but that doesn’t stop Aussie riders from hitting the track. Take a look at what went down!
2018 Sugar City Classic
There was a triple threat of BMX sweetness in Queensland over the weekend as the 2018 Sugar City Classic provided a healthy dose of racing for riders around the state.
Held over three days, the event made its first stop at Sarina BMX Club on Friday October 12, where the first three motos for competitive and participatory classes commenced.
Dropping out of the gates and crossing the line first were a bunch of riders who backed it up and gave themselves the best possible start against their opponents.

Wet weather came down hard over the weekend and unfortunately, Walkerston BMX Club couldn’t host the second day which resulted in riders being reverted back to Sarina.
Coming down to the finals on Sunday at Mackay Pioneer BMX Club, riders were ready at the gate for an excellent showdown of BMX racing and didn’t they perform!
Headlining the event were the men and women’s superclass riders and there were some quick times.
Standing tall on the men’s podium was Tristyn Kronk from Walkerston BMX Club who beat home fellow club member, Michael Wallin and Proserpine rider Peter Little.
Watch their race below!
In the women’s event, it was the Des’ree Barnes show as she convincingly won every single moto before backing it up in the final. Rounding out the podium with Barnes on top was Celeste Barr from Townsville BMX Club and Pine Rivers rider, Tenielle Botfield.

2018 Park Orchards Clash of the Titans
Our next and final stop of the weekend wrap takes us to the Victorian BMX Club of Park Orchards where they held their 2018 Clash of the Titans on Sunday.
Over 300 ‘titans’ threw everything they had into the track and some of them produced very impressive results never missing the beat all day.
Take a look at the undefeated riders below:
Featuring in the spotlight at Park Orchards were the superclass divisions and the races were full of Victorian BMX shredders.
In the women’s, there was a constant battle for the top spot between Julie Urben Di Giaimo, Emily Fotinioitis and Phoebe Wallen with each rider getting at least one first place finish. The final dictated who would stand tallest and it went Di Giaimo, Fotinoitis and Wallen.
It was a similar story for the men’s event with local home dirt rider, Max Cairns taking on Hayden Fletcher from Mansfield Mt Buller BMX Club. The pair were neck and neck in the final straight before Cairns edged out in front and won with .3 of a second in front of Fletcher.
