About 160 riders of all ages sweated it out at the Tasmanian BMX state titles in Launceston over the weekend.
The youngest rider was aged two years, while the eldest rider was 58 more years in advance, with plenty of high-intensity racing on display.
Riders were from all three Tasmanian clubs – Launceston, Southern City and Wynyard – with visitors from Queensland, Western Australia, Victoria and Northern Territory.
“There were some spectacular crashes, one just before the finish line while he was leading the race and two crashes over the finish line with riders colliding,” Launceston promotions officer Mark Bracken said.
“Thankfully there was no injuries other than grazes and bruised egos. Rider of the event went to Campbell Whitney and the team challenge went to YESS Tasmania development squad.”
