Mandurah BMX Club riders shine at state championships

The Mandurah BMX Club picked up its share of success at the recent 2019 BMX WA State Championships, with a handful of riders performing admirably in finals while two took out first place in their respective divisions.

A total 27 of the club's riders took to the track at Kwinana for the event, with Amelie Reid and Mandurah president Michelle Newport shining bright as they each claimed state titles.

Amelie pulled off a stunning clean sweep in the 8 girls division, showing some serious skill as she picked up first place in all four of her races before eventually winning the division final to take out the top state plate ranking.

Newport came as close as you can to repeating Amelie's achievement, winning three out of her four initial races while coming second in the remainder.

She went on to power her way to a victory in the final, as she too claimed a top state plate ranking.

Mandurah also produced three second-place riders across different divisions, with Cooper Dunlop (8-10 boys cruiser), Indi Harrison (8 girls) and Kara Harrison (14 girls) all ending their tournaments as runners-up.

Katelyn Hall (13 girls) and Xavier Bell (8 boys) also put in strong showings as they finished third and fifth in their respective classes.

In total, the club returned home with a staggering 13 state plates, while their young sprockets and mini-wheelers also got a taste of the action in their participation classes.
