Karratha’s BMX riders have returned from another successful foray on the big stage, this time competing at national titles in Bunbury.

Twenty-three Karratha riders attended the titles, racing in the cruiser and 20-inch classes among more than 2000 riders from across the country.

The club picked up five Australian plates, awarded to the top eight in each age class.

Jackson Tatham and Sophie Taylor were awarded plates in the cruiser class races, and Chloe Norman, Ashlyn Keremelevich and Alan Kurilowski each picked up plates in their 20-inch class age groups.

The plates cement each rider’s position as one of the best in their class in Australia.

Riders who are in the top 16 for their age class are offered a place on the Australian team for the world titles held in Baku, Azerbaijan from June 2 to 9.

Chloe and Mat Norman, Jackson Tatham, Nate Robinson and Sophie Taylor are confirmed Karratha BMX riders making the trip to race with the worlds best.
