Sib­lings born to be on bike

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

THERE is no sib­ling ri­valry when Bianca, Taylor and Mitchell Camp­bell take to the BMX track.

The Thorn­lie trio are part of a group of eight South­side BMX Club mem­bers who were se­lected to rep­re­sent Aus­tralia at the UCI BMX World Cham­pi­onships in South Carolina that just con­cluded.

Their mother Brenda said the trio had all worked in­cred­i­bly hard to qual­ify, usu­ally train­ing twice a day, five times a week in ad­di­tion to com­pet­ing twice a week.

“The kids have worked very hard in try­ing to achieve the high­est re­sults they can in BMX,” she said.

Bianca (16) is cur­rently ranked fifth for her age in Aus­tralia and is part of the WA team and is in the WAIS de­vel­op­ing cham­pi­ons squad.

Her brother Taylor (13) has en­dured hard­ship al­ready in his young ca­reer, hav­ing suf­fered two bro­ken arms.

But he has re­bounded strongly and is cur­rently ranked fifth in WA and races two years up in the 15 Boys bracket.

The youngest of the sib­lings, Mitchell (10) seemed des­tined to fol­low in the foot­steps of his brother and sis­ter from an early age. Just a few weeks af­ter he be­gan to ride, he broke a long-stand­ing record for fastest velo­drome lap time for his age group.
