Woorree wraps this week’s Tales from the Berm by BAD BOY.
The ninth round of the BMXWA Reliance Partners Insurance Brokers Super Series at Woorree Park had many high-flyers, but none more so than home dirt hero Corey Taylor, who claimed the line honours in the men’s superclass against a highly competitive field.
The 17-year old who represented Australia in the junior elite men’s category at the 2019 UCI BMX World Championships in Heusden-Zolder, Belgium lined up on the gate alongside the rest of the top male riders from WA, as the penultimate stage of the state series took place on Sunday, September 29.
On the gate, and among the favourites to claim the top spot, was the 2018 elite men’s national series champion Bradley Game, the 2019 Sam Willoughby medallist Jordan Callum, and the 16-boy’s rising star Jayden Keogh to name a few.
Yet it was Taylor who starred in the final, using his home dirt knowledge to finish ahead of Wanneroo’s Game in second and Alex Edwardes in third.
Joining the men’s superclass contingent were their female counterparts, as Westside’s Lilyanne Croft beat home the Hills’ duo of Felicity Mann (second) and Catherine Hopkins (third).
While the superclass is known as the ‘elite’ category of most events throughout Australia, they weren’t the only ones to compete during the state series round.
Nearly 400 entries were recorded as riders of all ages and abilities got their weekend dose of racing. Among the riders were the representatives from the host club, who set spurs to their whips and came away with the win, and in the process adding valuable last-minute points to their state series tally.
Alongside Taylor, the winning Woorree Park riders were Jana Van Staden in the 14+ women’s, and Michael Gallie in the 30+ cruiser.
The other top spots went to the following.

Before taking a look at the other events to go down across Australia over the weekend, the final two rounds of the 2019 UCI BMX Supercross World Cup occurred in Santiago Del Estero, Argentina and the Australian contingent there did the BMXA community proud.
