Bunbury kicks of the Super Series while Victoria wrap up their Track Attack with some incredible achievements.
Over the weekend, the start of the 2018 BMXWA Super Series commenced with round one dropping its gates at the Bunbury BMX Club. Over the course of the day over 450 riders hit the track in the hopes of claiming the title of top dog in the west.
Of the 39 classes on the track, there were eight victories from the hosting club who are gearing up for an exciting National Championships starting on March 19.
The Bunbury stars included Jayden Holmes 10 Expert Boys who won every race he entered in, Leisha Sunderland in the 30+ women’s, Aaron Danks in the 40+ men’s, Austin Forrester in the 13-14 Cruiser and Matthew Blake in the 17-29 mens.
Top stars have to go to Superclass women, Rachelle Smith and Jazz Bailey who placed a close first and second place out of 19 riders as well as Steele Cherubino who took the honours in the 12 Boys Expert class and also the 11-12 Boys Voucher
Another successful club was the Westside BMX Club who snagged seven first places in the first round of this fierce western battle. Coby Van De Velde was flawless winning all stages of the 9 Expert Boys from moto’s to finals.

The victorious riders in the first round of the Super Series will be seeing it as a good omen as the National Champs keeps creeping towards us. Don’t forget that entries close on Feb 9! Head HERE to enter before it’s too late!
The second round of the Super Series is heading to the Southern Districts BMX Club on February 4 for what is expected to be another ripper display of racing in the west.
Round three and four of Victoria’s Track Attack were held within the weekdays at the Knox and Frankston BMX Clubs. A great turn out with over 600 riders attacking the tracks resulted in top racing during a hot Victorian summer.
The event then concluded over the weekend, and judging by the responses online, this was one of the most successful years they’ve had.
There were some exciting clashes and the triumphant riders will be pleased to wrap up a great series. You cannot fault the effort from the riders and there were some who stood out from the rest.
Winning back-to-back events over a weekend is always an incredible feat, but how about clean sweeping the entire class competition winning all six Track Attack events in class!
Samuel Ivas (Cross Keys BMX Club) in the 10 Expert Boys class, Ava Lazaridis (Wyndham Warriors BMX Club) in the 10 Expert Girls, Connor Fallon (Lilydale BMX Club) in the 13 Boys, Clare McNamara (Terrigal BMX Club) in the 17-29 Women and Harvey Brooks (Knox BMX Club) in the 8 Expert Boys, have all been unstoppable in the Track Attack Series.
Also unstoppable was Satellite City BMX Club rider Isabel Spooner who joined the above riders in winning 24 of 24 races for the series. Alongside Ivas and McNamara, Spooner was one of three riders from interstate clubs to clinch a brace of victories.
Winning every class race in the series is an incredible achievement and no doubt will give these riders a heap of confidence, especially with the big nationals in Bunbury luring.
