Riders from the Territory and beyond descended on Darwin last weekend for the “Top End Double Header” in which Satellite City BMX Club and Jingili BMX Club hosted Rounds 2 & 3 of the 2021 HutSix NT BMX Series.
With Series and National Cup points to play for, almost 200 riders from every NT club lined up to put on a show for the 500 strong local crowd and show commentator Axl Dethmore that they had the “speed to keep the lead”.
Saturday evening saw local Jingili riders Talon Dobson and Camden Wilkinson line up in the Men’s Superclass to test their skills alongside elite riders Jack Davis, Oli Moran, and Tristan Scott who were in town to compete for a place in the 2021 BMX World Championships. Both riders competed admirably and done the local crowd proud.
The hotly contested Jr Superclass saw Nhulunbuy rider Matthew Winter enter the fray hoping to make up some ground on Red Centre riders Daniel Brooks Jr, Reece Cole, and Kit Williams who had set the bar high in Rd 1 in Alice Springs. Winter won the class on both days to put himself in the picture ahead of the remaining rounds however Reece Cole’s second-place finish was enough to nudge him into 1st place in the series overall.
In the 10 girls class, it was Kendra Seiboth who fought off stiff competition from Penny Ralph, Madelyn Nowland, and Molly Lawrence to secure her place at the top of the leader board after 3 rounds.
