The two fastest women went head-to-head in the final of the superclass division and it was Castle Hill’s Ashlee Miller who produced a red hot lap to stand tall on the podium.
It is always exciting watching our up-and-coming riders develop into the talented athletes they are, and Tahlia Marsh is one of them.
Recording the fourth fastest time at the South Australian track, the 15-year-old is one to watch as we see her continue to rise up the ranks.
Getting out of the gate quickly is one of the most important aspects of BMX racing. You get that good start, you can control the race and gun it all the way to the finish line.
Below are the fastest gate starts over the weekend. Take a look!
