Windy conditions were on the menu in the nation’s capital, but the riders racing in the sixth round of the national series seemed to enjoy the taste of it.

More than 400 riders turned up to the track and were determined to not let the conditions impact the red hot racing they produced.

Take a look at our welcome to the weekend below!

The Tuggeranong BMX Club and its members have produced a pitch perfect track for their fellow Australian riders and to say the racing on show was outstanding is an understatement.

Coming in hot with the home dirt advantage were the Tuggeranong duo of Amelia Stichbury (8-girl’s) and Maddie Hayes (11-12 girl’s cruiser). The pair have had the perfect start to their national series weekend, both winning their first two motos and putting themselves in pole position for day two tomorrow.

Another Tuggeranong rider who had a successful start to the weekend was Kaine McCarroll in the 30-34 men’s cruiser event where he raced in a merged class.
