This week’s Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY is all about the best mums in the world… and they’re BMX mums of course!

It was a weekend to stop and say thank you to the outstanding members of the BMXA family who go above and beyond the required to make the sport what it…the BMXA Mums.

While many clubs took this opportunity, one event in particular caught the eye of BAD BOY’s Tales from the Berm. Every year, the Townsville BMX Club holds the Luke Matthews Memorial and this year, they included it as a day to celebrate mums.

 The superclass event is always an exciting spectacle and the men and women competing at the northern Queensland club didn’t disappoint.

Taking the top gong in the women’s was local home dirt hero, Celeste Barr, with Cairns riders Alana Rayner, looking to take more than her 15-girl’s win, in second, and Jesse’ Robbins in third.

The men’s ledger read Wade Mundie from Cairns on the top of the podium, with Atherton’s Kaleb Nielsen in second and Townsville’s Sean Morris in third.

In addition to the above classes, the Rookie Cup was on offer for male and female riders aged 13-15. Lifting the cup at the end of the day was Townsville’s Christopher Heagney, with Walkerston’s Connor Parish in second and Atherton’s Kallum Collett in third.

One of our favourite things about the BMXA mums is that they don’t just sit trackside and cheer their children on. Some of them also get on the whip and take to the track. Here’s a great photo thanks to Rachael Mills!

While action in Townsville was heating up, the third and fourth rounds of the 2019 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup went down in Papendal, the Netherlands.

Kai and Saya Sakakibara both found their way to the finals, while Bunbury’s Lauren Reynolds also got a piece of the action alongside 7 other Aussies.
