Launceston riders have returned from the Victorian BMX State Championships exhibiting their state pride.
Former top-ranked Australian Pat O’Callaghan led the island charge in a series of strong results.
The veteran contesting in the 50+age, 24-inch class, along with Sam Wells and Bob McLean in the 20-inch class, all finished among the top eight at Shepparton.
They brought home five plate wins for their performances over multiple heats, semi-finals and finals.
“Our expectations that at least one of us would come home with a plate but yeah, we probably done a bit more than what we should’ve actually,” Callaghan said.
“We’ve done quite well because it’s the first time those two have been over there.
“So it was a good learning experience.”
Callaghan had previously made a comeback in 2010 after spending 14 years away from the sport.
Juniors Sarah O’Callaghan and Amy Bracken competed in the sprocket class.
