Capturing the spotlight for this week’s Tales from the Berm is the Ashmore BMX Club, who held their November Rumble on Saturday.

Over 170 riders turned up to the Queensland track for their dose of BMX action and with temperatures reaching over 30 degrees, it was hard to determine what was hotter… the weather or the racing!

Starring were the male and female elite national champions, Brandon Te Hiko and Erin Lockwood, who competed against a strong field of riders in the superclass.

Joining Te Hiko was Joshua Boyton from Centenary Plains, Corey Frieswyk from Caboolture, Suncoast’s Dirk Winter, Nerang’s Kerrod Connors and home dirt hero, Kyle Hill.

Continuing his impressive season, Te Hiko stood tallest on the podium with Boyton in the two-spot and Hill finishing close behind in third.

Lockwood also had her work cut out for her with the likes of fellow Queenslanders Taya Pace (Ashmore), Sheridan Flint (Toowoomba) and Paris Beuermann (Bayside) hot on her wheels.

But her toughest competition came from Salomã Ernotte, all the way from France, who pushed Lockwood to the finish line every time they hit the track. The final standings based on points had Lockwood atop the podium with Ernotte second and Pace third.

The superclass wasn’t the only action on the day with riders from a wide range of ages turning up to race. Spearheading the day were the six participation classes with a total of 45 eager riders enjoying the day’s events.

The 20-inch and the cruiser classes were also turning up the heat. In particular were the Ashmore riders who made the most of their home dirt advantage.

They were:

  • Matilda Guy (8-girl’s)
  • Aiden Tillotson (9-boy’s)
  • Charlee Gardner (9-girl’s)
  • Ashton Pace (11-boy’s)
  • Isabella Schramm (13-girl’s)
  • Joel Griggs (11-12 boy’s cruiser)
  • Tobias Kollman (17-24 men’s cruiser)
  • Jason Nowland (40-44 men’s cruiser)

There was also a handful of visiting riders who got the job done in style winning every single race they competed in.

They were:

  • Jye Galloway: 8-boy’s (Penrith BMX Club)
  • Archie Bayley: 10-boy’s (Sunshine Coast BMX Club)
  • Haley Powell: 11-girl’s (Nerang BMX Club)
