The fourth round of the 2019 BMX Tasmania State Series had an abundance of success stories and here are some of them thanks to the Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY.
The state series round at Wynyard Park BMX Club attracted nearly 100 entries across 30 competitive and participatory categories, and while the event didn’t boast a huge number of riders, they more than made up for it with fast and exciting racing for spectators.
The event had riders representing the three clubs from across Tassie with the host leading the charge with 37 entries, Launceston was second with 31, and Southern City with 24.
But joining the three clubs were two riders from Western Australia.
Bryce and JustineLane from the Hills BMX Club took on their Tasmanian counterparts in the superclass category and the pair fell just short of reaching the top of the podium.
Taking out the men’s was Wynyard’s Reece Ellis who got the better of Bryce and Matthew Duncombe from Southern City.
On the women’s ledger, Southern City’s Breeanna Oxley found the top spot, with Justine in second place and Wynyard’s Lisa Eaves third.
The host club did their best to use their home track advantage and for some, it was the difference between finding the top spot and having to settle for second.
The winning Wynyard riders were:
Lucas Crisp: 8-boy’s
Tahlia Broomhall: 9-girl’s
Byron Lee: 10-boy’s
Kasey Kirkland: 10-girl’s
Hayley Emmerton: 8-10 girl’s cruiser
Jacob French: 11-boy’s
Clay Ellis: 17-24 men’s
Brodie Emmerton: 25-29 men’s cruiser
Matthew French: 40-44 men’s cruiser
Paul Emmerton: 50+ men’s cruiser
One of our favourite stories from this year’s 2019 #BMXANS was the 25-29 men’s story at Southern City during stage 6. The class consisting of mates, god fathers and brother in-laws didn’t disappoint with Launceston’s Aaron ‘Browny’ Brown taking out the chocolates over the Wynyard Park trio of Brodie, Reece and Ben Anderson.
