The Launceston BMX Club in Tasmania opened its arms to almost 200 riders from around the country to take part in the final stanza of the 2018 national series.

Rising to the challenge was the host club who provided a canteen full of food, a well prepared track and on the go maintenance due to challenging early morning weather conditions.

There was fantastic racing on show from the riders, and there were plenty of passionate supporters in the grand strands which resulted in a great day of action.

One of the families we met and featured across the weekend were the Van Anholt’s, who have travelled around the country to compete at every single round of the national series.

Covering the event was the local TV station WIN News as well as the newspaper, The Examiner, who not only produced a cracking wrap up of results – but also delivered a photo gallery of the day’s action.

While it was the mainland riders who took the majority of the victories, there were a handful of local Tassie riders who found the podium on home dirt.

If you missed out on attending the event, not to worry. Take a look at the day’s highlights as we journeyed through a national series round at the Launceston BMX Club.

Two of the most exciting races were the men and women’s superclass finals. Returning to national series action was Victoria’s Hayden Fletcher, who had previously competed at rounds one and two at Penrith and Frankston BMX clubs.

This time around, Fletcher hit the gas and got the win, but hot on his heels was fellow Victorian, Max Cairns. Take a look at the men’s race below.

The women’s superclass also provided plenty of entertainment producing one of the top races of the round. A NSW showdown between Gemma-Lee Thomas, Leah Hearne, Paige Harding and Ashlee Miller had the finish line officials require a photo finish.
