Day 1 of the third round of the 2018 BMXA National Series at Darwin’s Satellite City was short and sweet with the promise of some great racing on Day 2.
The third round of the 2018 BMX Australia National Series at Satellite BMX Club got underway today, as 200 entries took to the track on what was a beautiful evening in Darwin.
With just one moto held on day one – much of the action is still yet to come, but that didn’t stop tomorrow’s superstars in the 5 – 7 Sprocket divisions from putting on a show today in front of a healthy crowd.
In what were perfect conditions for racing, young Satellite City BMX Club riders Olivia Johnson and Sophia-Rose Quedley represented their home track magnificently in the 7 years girl’s while Oliver Brock, Tyler Heikkinen and Kyle Wong flew the flag with pride in the seven years boy’s.
In the five and under sprocket boy’s, locals Kai Noakes and Darcy Walker, along with Toowoomba BMX Club’s Braxton Behrendt and Jingili Bmx Club’s Finlay Roe warmed up the crowd and showed that the future of the sport is in safe hands with smooth riding beyond their years.
Check out some of the best of the Sprockets’ action below.
The ‘Superclass’ rounds offered a chance for crowds to see some of Australia’s elite riders in action, and they didn’t disappoint, as Brad Shaylor (Lmx Bicycle Supercross) and Terrigal BMX Club’s Rory McNamara produced a pair of stunning performances to win their respective motos to set up a thrilling showdown tomorrow. While in the women, Nerang BMX Club’s reigning national elite women’s champion Erin Lockwood wrestled the early ascendancy heading into day two.
Ultimately, there was no shortage of standout performers following the first moto of the weekend. To see the RESULTS click HERE!
