Started in 2015, the Tri-Series is growing each and every year as the opener for the Hills BMX Club with more than 180 riders across the day partaking in some competitive and fun racing.
The women’s superclass had Westside’s Lilyanne Croft produce a clean sweep across the day, however it was only by the slightest of margins in the end, as local favourite Catherine Hopkins fell short of first place by less than a second in the final.
In the men’s superclass, Wanneroo’s Bradley Game showed his game by edging out the Hills very own Jamie Gill and Corey Taylor of Woorree Park, in a tense final race.
While the superclass spearheaded the show, it wasn’t the only success story on the day.
One rider that stood out was Mandurah’s Amelie Reid, who took it upon herself to enter into the 9-boy’s and took the chocolates, clean sweeping her male competitors.
Reid is continuing to add to her success after finishing fourth overall in the national series in 2019, her most notable performance was clean sweeping stage two at Westside. Check out the final below.
