COOPER Donnelly has just returned from an interstate BMX competition where he put on a high quality display with his rough terrain biking achievements.

The 15-year-old is a member of the Hills BMX club in Kalamunda.

The Victorian competition was held from November 19-20 and allows competitors to enter the event from other states.

This year’s titles were held at Shepparton in Victoria.

On his 26 inch cruiser Cooper took out the Saturday competition with wins in the State titles, run by BMX-V.

The Saturday competition was a random draw prior to racing while the Sunday event was for plates on a regular 20 inch BMX and Cooper was competing against 27 other 15 year olds.

The top 16 go into the two semi finals rounds and the top four go into the final with eight competitors in the final race.

Cooper took outline honours in the Sunday event for the number one plate.

It was the first time at the event a competitor from outside Victoria has walked away with wins in both classes in a state championship.

“I’m so stoked with a double win, all that training was worth it,” Cooper said.
