Mansfield Courier - - Front Page -

LO­CAL BMX racer Hay­den Fletcher has had a very suc­cess­ful Oc­to­ber, which is what landed him a Sportsper­son of the Month nom­i­na­tion.

The 19-year-old won two of three race meets in Mel­bourne, Gee­long and Kil­syth, and pro­ceeded to travel to Tas­ma­nia where he took out the win in the last round of the Aus­tralian Na­tional se­ries.

While he has had an ab­so­lutely fan­tas­tic year on the track, he is look­ing to head on in to the 2019 Na­tional Cham­pi­onships.

These events are set to be held in Shep­par­ton in May next year, where a top three or four fin­ish will qual­ify him for the 2019 Aus­tralian World cham­pi­onship team.

Ear­lier this year, Fletcher took an­other step for­ward in his pro­fes­sional ca­reer, head­ing to Amer­ica where showed off his tal­ent.

Rac­ing at the USABMX Mu­sic City Na­tion­als in Nashville, Ten­nessee, the 19 year old took the big­gest wins of his ca­reer, win­ning two events in the A pro class.

The young­ster then re­turned to Aus­tralia in July, where he has since set his sights on the 2020 Olympic qual­i­fy­ing races in Europe and com­menced prepa­ra­tions.
