ROCKINGHAM and the Southern Districts BMX clubs took on the country’s best this week, when they and 15 other WA clubs made the trip to Victoria for the 2019 BMX Australia Bad Boy National Championships.

The marquee event in Shepparton featured a newly-constructed state-of-the-art 8m start hill for the elite riders and facilities for the thousands expected to attend the event as competitors, officials and spectators.

There were more than 1500 entrants from 99 Australian clubs, aged from as young as four and as old as 67.

Leading the way for the 21 riders from the region was world number 1 Jordan Callum, of Baldivis, who competed in the 15 years boys category.

Representing Rockingham on the elite stage was Jordan’s older brother Dylan, who competed in the junior elite category, and Joel Flower, who raced in the elite men’s.

Flying the flag for the Southern Districts was junior elite women’s rider Shantelle Rea.
