BMX Winter Carnival gets hot
MACKAY and District BMX Club’s Walkerston Winter Carnival was held on Saturday. The day had plenty of fast racing, a few spills and volumes of loud cheering.
Around 200 riders from throughout Queensland competed. A highlight of the day was the winner of the nine year old Boys Holeshot award, Jett Howe, of Moranbah.
He won a Bike Tracks Australia Jersey. It was also great to see the return of local Superclass rider Jessica Doring to racing, after a three year period off the bike.
Joseph Costa of Cairns was the quickest on the day, winning the Redfox Superclass Men. With local riders Tristyn Kronk placing second and Peter Little in third.
In the Walkerston Fuel Superclass Women, a crash in the finals allowed Townsville’s Ashleigh Gunn to take the crown, with Proserpine sisters Isabella Allan in second and Kira Allan in third.
Both Superclass Men and Women competed for a prize pool of $1000 each.
