NSW and SA have begun their 2019 State Series in the best possible way – with some epic racing.

Welcome to another edition of the Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY. Last weekend, BMX fans in NSW and SA were blessed with the opportunity to begin their state series campaigns and there were some outstanding performances.

BMXSA – 2019 State Series Round 1, Happy Valley BMX Club.

Opening proceedings are the riders from South Australia, as the Happy Valley BMX Club played host to nearly 250 entries on a stellar Sunday.

Living and loving BMX were the 38 riders from the special participation classes of the Sprockets and Mini-Wheelers, and we can’t wait to see them competing in the future.

On to the competitive side of things and the SA riders were ready to begin their series in the best possible way… with a win of course.

In the men’s superclass, the Cove’s Shane Rosa was at it again winning every moto before taking out the final in style. Joining him on the podium were his fellow club men of Matthew Tidswell and James Smith, the Cove BMX club must be pretty happy with that result!

The Cove’s winning ways continued, as the women’s superclass was won by Annaliese Rokov, but Happy Valley’s Georgia Potter didn’t go down without a fight, finishing close on the two-spot. Rounding out the podium in the women’s contingent was Marisa Peressoni from Tea Tree Gully.

The host club had their fair share of success with the following riders making full use of their local track advantage to come away with a win.

  • Kade McNamara: 8-boy’s
  • Maya Wellman: 8-9 girl’s
  • Winston Richards: 10-boy’s
  • Preston Murray: 12-boy’s
  • Trey Tuffin: 13-boy’s

BMXNSW – 2019 States Series Round 1, Lake Macquarie BMX Club

Joining South Australia in a weekend of BMX were over 500 entries at the Lake Macquarie BMX Club on Sunday.

Riders from NSW and the ACT were fiercely contesting the one-spot in a bid for the all-important points on their respective series standings.

The host club had nearly 100 riders making full use of their home track advantage and some riders crossed the finish line first in spectacular style.

Kicking off the list is Bridie Laws in the 9-girl’s, Miller Ruks in the 12-boy’s, Callum O’Neill in the 25-29 men and Kaine Robinson in the 17-24 men’s cruiser.

The junior elite national champion led home a tough contingent of riders including Tamworth’s Jack Davis (2nd), Manning Valley’s Oliver Moran (3rd), Blue Mountains Adam Carey and Hawkesbury’s Kale Warner, to mention a few.

The women’s superclass was dominated by the world no.2, Saya Sakakibara, who has continued her winning ways after the Oceania Championships to beat home Leanna Curtis and Ashlee Miller in a perfect performance of BMX racing.
