THE Proser­pine BMX Club will put the pedal to the metal for a good cause this week­end.

The club will host a meet on Satur­day at Les Stagg Oval, with all monies raised go­ing to­wards a can­cer fund.

Crank­ing for Can­cer will start at 1pm, with rid­ers from Townsville, the Bur­dekin, Mo­ran­bah, Rock­hamp­ton and Mackay set to join.

“Our rid­ers are very ex­cited, es­pe­cially be­ing on their home track,” Proser­pine BMX Club sec­re­tary Sharon Jenkinson said.

In other news, the club re­cently re- turned out­stand­ing re­sults from the State Ti­tle Cham­pi­onships in Bris­bane.

Sev­en­teen Proser­pine rid­ers took part in the three-day event at the Slee­mans Sports Cen­tre, tough­ing it out against the best in the state.

Five rid­ers ex­celled to bring home Queens­land plates – a phe­nom­e­nal ef­fort from a re­gional club against the might of Queens­land’s ci­ties.

By­ron Chauntler won a Q7 plate in the un­der-11 boys, Tay­lor Kerr a Q6 plate in the un­der-14 girls and Ver­non Dries claimed Q6 plates in the 50+ 20 inch and cruiser di­vi­sions.

Kira Al­lan and Peter Lit­tle dom­i­nat- ed their ju­nior elite classes, win­ning Q2 and Q5 plates re­spec­tively.

Toby and Kaleb Jenkinson, Is­abella Al­lan, Madi­son and Kae­lan Gough, An­thony Pendlebury, Ma­caulay Mun­roe, Chloe Chauntler and Corey Smith also per­formed strongly at the ti­tles in Septem­ber.

“The Proser­pine BMX Club is very proud of all our rid­ers,” Jenkinson said.

The Proser­pine BMX Club trains on Mon­days from 5.30pm and races on Fri­day from 6pm.
