Riders show off good form at NW Super Series finale
Pedal power and a rugged course set the stage for the final round of the North West Super Series BMX championship.
Taking place on August 31 at the Tom Price BMX track, 176 riders competed in more than 19 categories in the fourth and final round of the Super Series.
Four superclass male riders battled it out for the championship.
Tom Price’s own Travis Stewart took out the event, but it wasn’t enough to secure the Super Series win, with Blake White earning enough points to win overall.
Four women faced off in the women’s superclass with Karratha’s Jade Keremelevich taking out the series victory in dominant fashion.
The eight-year-old boys’ division was won by Tom Price local Ryder Matthews, who cleared Sam Langford by nearly two seconds to secure the win and take out the series in his age group.
Karratha’s Nate Robinson continued his strong form in the nine-year boys group, winning the race by one second in an all-Karratha podium to secure his Super Series win.
Tom Price BMX club president Ron Erasmus said the event was a success.
“The day unfolded really well, the weather was great, and the atmosphere around the park was great,” he said.
Mr Erasmus said they changed the track layout for the event, including having bituminised corners.
“A lot of the riders improved over the year and because of the new corners, the riders’ times were much better than in the past,” he said.
“We didn’t have a great deal of accident or crashes, which was a thumbs up from us because that’s the last thing we want to happen.”
