Southside Round 2 Week 5
Down the coast of WA and our next stop is at Southside BMX Club, who held another round of their 2018 season. A fantastic event which always encourages neighbouring club riders to join the fray and take on Southsiders on their home dirt.

Back across to Far North Queensland and Townsville BMX Club held their BMXtreme event which (alongside it being a well named event) brought together over 100 riders all determined to enjoy a day on their bikes.
Winning every race you compete in is an extraordinary achievement, but even more so to do it in six motos and a final.
Below are the riders who seized their day ensuring no one was going to beat them to the finish line.
Special mentions need to go to home club hero, Mackenzie Munro who not only won every race in the 13-girl’s but also did so in the 13-14 girl’s cruiser. Another home dirter who had a cracking day of racing was 11-boy’s winner Hunter Boschen who also won line honours in the 8-10 boy’s cruiser.

2018 Bendigo Gold Rush
Only halfway through the weekend and already we have had a splendid display of shredding from our riders. Our next stop is at Bendigo BMX Club in Victoria who held their 2018 Gold Rush on Sunday.
Raking in huge numbers for the event, the club (and the weather) ensured that 225 riders had a great day on track. There was a fierce battle between Knox BMX Club and Sunbury BMX Club who both had riders turning it on to make for exciting racing.
As the final gate dropped though, it was Sunbury who came up with the trumps having eight riders stand tallest on the podium while Knox had seven.
For the superclass events, it was Australia’s national champion Brandon Te Hiko from Geelong who produced a blistering 33.587 seconds to win the day with Sunbury’s James Lautier coming second and Wyndham Warrior William Lees in third.
In the women’s, Knox BMX had two riders on the podium with Phoebe Wallen in first and Emily Fotinoitis in second. Finishing the podium was Julie Urben Di Giaimo from Lilydale BMX Club.

There were some challenge riders out to do battle at the NT club with some of them producing astonishing performances. The riders who left their competitors in their dust all day are:
