Another bout of state title action and the Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY has it covered.
The season of state titles has continued as BMXSA’s Hutsix State Championships at the Cross Keys BMX Club took place across the weekend (26-27 October) and recorded over 400 entries.
The event was open for all riders from the state and beyond and with a $12,000 prize pool for the masterclasses and the superclasses, the action at the Pooraka track was fierce.
The championships kicked off on Saturday as the cruisers, sprockets, mini-wheelers and the superclass shootout competition featured nearly 160 entries competing for the first SA plates on offer.
The Cross Keys riders hosting the event were ready to put their foot down on the competition, and none did so more than their 8-10 boy’s cruiser riders with Cannyn Hayes clean sweeping the day, followed by fellow club mates Billy Van Hout in second and Jacob Turner in third.
Also finding the top of the podium from Cross Keys was Samuel Ivas in the 11-12 boy’s cruiser, Tara Fitzpatrick in the 11-14 girl’s cruiser, Brayden Porter in the 17-30 men’s cruiser, Greg Clift in the 35-39 men’s cruiser and John Cobby in the 40-44 men’s cruiser.
The Cove’s Shane Rosa picked up the fastest time in the men’s superclass shootout event with a blistering 30.950, while Geelong’s Brandon Te Hiko came second at 31.878 and Rio Olympian Bodi Turner grabbed third at 31.998.
With the time trial completed, the top eight banged bars in an exciting final with the above three riders holding their spots to grab the overall podium.
The women’s superclass was just as exciting with Clarence Valley’s Tahlia Marsh clocking the fastest lap in the time trial at 36.628 seconds, while Happy Valley’s Georgia Potter came second at 37.212 and Pine Rivers’ Kiana Botfield third in 37.474 seconds.
Coincidentally, the corresponding final after the time trial went the same way as the men’s, with the women’s podium remaining the same.

Sunday’s action showcased 20inch racing, and there were some seriously impressive performances as over 250 entries jumped on the gate.
In total, there were 22 clean sweeping performers out of the 28 challenge classes on offer.
Not to be missed were the other winning riders from the 20inch classes as Happy Valley’s Madison Fitzgibbons won the 11-girl’s, Mildura’s Aaron Wheatland won the 30+ masters vet pro, Gawler’s Bobby Alexander won the 35-39 men’s, Cross Keys’ Paul Linke in the retro 40-44 and John Cobby in the 35+ masers open wheel.
Coffs Coasts Ben McDonald not only clean swept the retro 40+, but also grabbed the 40-49 men’s on the same day.
Wrapping up the event for another state titles was the superclass, as top tier riders from around the country competed for large prize money.
Clarence Valley’s Marsh found the top of the podium for the second time, beating home Botfield in second and The Cove’s Annaliese Rokov in third.
Geelong’s Te Hiko had a point to prove against his long-standing rival Rosa and did so, taking the line honours in front of him, with Sydney’s two-time elite national champion Alex Cameron in third.
