The biggest BMX event for 2019 might have been going down in Europe over the weekend, but that didn’t stop Australia’s shredders getting their piece of the action on home soil.

The final weekend of July held BMX racing all across the country with 22 events and over 1200 entries recorded since Friday, July 26.

One of those events with the highest number of participants was Southlake/Illawarra’s 2019 Series 2 – Round 1 race meet, which had 112 entries competing from seven clubs. The host club is getting ready to host the eighth round of the BMXNSW State Series next weekend (August 4) and what better way to prepare than with some BMX racing of their own.

Dominating the day was the host club, who had four of their riders find the top spot on the podium out of the seven competitive categories on offer.

The pro class, also known as the superclass, is always one to watch as Australia’s most competitive riders battle it out and it was a Southlake trio that claimed all three spots on the podium. Thomas Dallinger crossed the finish line first, with Baily Fox in second and Frank Penrose in third.

Other classes that had a Southlake clean sweep of the podium was division 1 with Ivy Gilbert first, Mackenzie Butterfield in second and Liam Baily in third, and the open wheel category which was led by Isaac Williams, Michael Bailey in second and Des Conway in third.

It wasn’t just the Southlake show, as Castle Hill’s riders dominated the division 3 podium in style. Joshua Seaton found the top spot, with Angus Smith in second and Harry Rowlands in third.
