Bendigo Goldrush & Eastfield

Bendigo Goldrush & Eastfield Experience wrap up

The Bmx racing season is back in full swing. Over the last 2 weekends riders from around Victoria travelled to Bendigo for the annual ‘Goldrush’ and to Eastfield for “The Experience”
Bendigo ran the Pro Open class which saw 3 gates of riders battling it out for a shot at the final. After flipping the gate in practice, I qualified into the semi final. It was not all smooth sailing though. The gate failed after the electronic prompts and all 8 semi final riders went over the gate. Once the issue was rectified riders loaded up again and got ready to race. A 3rd place in the semi put me through to the final. With a slow start I found myself in traffic and finished the race in 7th.

Next on the calendar was the Eastfield
Experience. With 33 single A Pro riders, it was going to be a big day of fast and competitive racing. Qualifying moto’s saw me pull 3,6 and a 2nd, which had me on 11 points. When the semi finals were announced, it was the best of the best in each semi. When the gate dropped I was playing catchup to the rest of the field, and went to make my move into the first corner, but unfortunately got tangled with another rider and had me finish the race in 7th which me out of the final.

Now with some nicer weather, and daylight savings quickly coming will give me a lots of time to pull things back into place. USA BMX Grand Nationals are approximately 9 weeks away, and I will be ready to take on the best riders America has to offer.
