Catching this week’s Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY, is the championship racing in Queensland. Take a look!
The riders present at the 2019 South Queensland Regional BMX Club Championships, brought the fire… literally, as the Ipswich West Moreton BMX Club played host to one of the biggest events on the Queensland calendar.
The venue for the third stage of the 2019 BMXA BAD BOY National Series delivered another sensational event, as over 550 entries were recorded on a testing weekend of racing.
There were 48 podiums up for grabs across Saturday June 15, with many home track riders making the most of their advantage by grabbing the top spot.
Those Ipswich ignitors were Nate Argent (11-boy’s), Peter Krasevskis (12-boy’s), Tristan Scott (15-boy’s), Chloe Jackson (16-girl’s), Holyee-Ann Jackson (8-10 girl’s cruiser) and Ross Morrison (35-39 men’s cruiser).
There were also visiting riders who never missed the beat all day, standing on top of the podium after convincingly winning every race they competed in for their respective class. They were:
The men’s superclass drew many eyes to the Ipswich strip, as the recently crowned elite men’s national champion, Izaac Kennedy went up against Knox’s Josh McLean, Ashmore’s Kyle Hill, Beenleigh’s Buddha Baum, Nerang’s Jesse Asmus, Redland’s Jye Hombsch and Centenary Plain’s Josh Boyton to name a few.
