RID­ERS from as far as Rock­hamp­ton and Cairns con­verged on the Proser­pine BMX Club to com­pete in the Queens­land Coun­try Cham­pi­onships over the week­end.

The weather was fan­tas­tic and the club’s new start gate and track were in per­fect con­di­tion.

More than 150 rid­ers took to the track and bat­tled it out for first po­si­tion and there was some tough rac­ing and a few crashes along the way.

Lo­cal rid­ers Kira Al­lan and Tay­lor Kerr are head­ing over to New Zealand at the end of July for the world ti­tles and the club wishes them all the best.

The club thanked all mem­bers and non-mem­bers who put in their time and ef­fort to help make the event a suc­cess.

They also thanked their spon­sors for en­sur­ing the event ran as smoothly as pos­si­ble

TOP PRO: Lo­cal rider Peter Lit­tle (cen­tre) took out the pro men cat­e­gory at the Proser­pine BMX Club's race meet on the week­end.

TOO FAST: Proser­pine BMX rider Bren­dan Lan­gan (cen­tre) stands on the podium af­ter a great week­end of rac­ing on his home track last week­end.
