The GV Classic was on in Shepparton on Sunday, it was also the final round of the Victorian Pro Series. Five members of the Speedline Parts/Supercross BMX Australia team members were up for the challenge racing at the home of the 2010 Australian Championships in Shepparton.
The sunshine was shining and so were the team with some great results in some tough competition. With 252 riders and 364 entries, we were in for some exciting racing.
#89 Stewart Kelly is the local rider with good knowledge of the track and knows how to carve the bitumen berms. Racing 30-39 20” men he BOLTed through into the main final. In the main Stew was unlucky and tangled with another rider and finished with a 7th place.
#619 Craig Austin has a PASSION for racing, the pinup boy of the team raced in 30-39 20” men and also made an appearance in the final. Craig has been off the bike since March and to jump back on and take a 6th on the long Shepparton track is a top effort.
#45 Craig Penglase, the Chef, said the burgers are better at Hungry Jacks… No he didn’t… The president of BMX Victoria showed what it takes to race in the super competitive 40-49 cruiser class. With a 2nd 3rd and 3rd in moto’s he was looking for a podium finish in the final. In the main the gate dropped and he put in the hard yards but with the tough field he rode his ENVY in for a 5th.
#32 Simon Trewin After almost 5 months off the bike with a broken heel receiving 2 titanium screws and only walking for the last 2 months, Simon felt it was time to hit the tracks again riding 30-39 cruiser. Once the gate dropped he didn’t look back winning every moto with transponder times to be competitive in Vet pro. He took the big step on the podium which was the ENVY of the class. We will see more of Simon back out on the track and he is looking forward to getting back into Vet pro.
#466 Brandon May the new guy in the Speedline/Supercross team was a BLUR in AA Pro with transponder times only some of us could dream about, even after spending less than a week on the new bike. Also with a local knowledge of the track he transferred easily into the 3 moto final… When the dust settled after the 3 finals he finished with an impressive 4th in a stacked AA field…
