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.

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.
