 Two hills BMX riders brought home Australian titles from the 2019 BMXA National Championships in Shepparton.

Tecoma’s Jacob Sverns won the 30-plus masters class and Harvey Brooks from Ferntree Gully picked up the gold in the nine years boy’s category.

More than 1500 riders took to the track at the country’s premier BMX event, travelling from every state and territory, looking for a national title or a coveted ‘A’ plate that is awarded to a finalist in each age category.

Fellow Knox BMX Club riders Joshua Jolly (13 years boy’s), James Tait (17-24 years) and Stephanie Alexander (10 years girl’s final) also brought home national titles.

Club mate Phoebe Wallen won second in the junior elite women’s and Dean Miller took third in men’s 30-34 years 20 inch.

Fellow Knox riders Bree Dows, Milly Gray, Reegan Schafter, Emilee McGregor, Jake Hall, Caroline Rogers, Sebastian Fraser and Zoe Johnston also made it through to finals.
