The fourth and final day of the challenger classes at the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships in Rock Hill, South Carolina saw Team Australia come away with two more world plates.
2016 Australian national champion, Beau Pratt from Bundaberg BMX club, locked up fourth place in the 17-24yrs men’s class. A great finish for him after disappointingly crashing out in the national championship final in Brisbane earlier this year.
Dirk Winter, the reigning national champion in the 25-29yrs men’s wasn’t able to secure a podium spot in Rock Hill but still came home strong for a #W5. The Suncoast Hinterland BMX club rider will add the plate to his #W1 in the cruiser categories earlier in the week.
Tenae Brooks (Maitland Tenambit BMX club), Amanda Morgan (Wyndham Warriors BMX club) and Dean Johnston (Maitland Tenambit BMX club) all made it to the semi final round of their classes, extremely impressive results in what was a USA dominated world championships.
