BMX Kiwi World No 1s dominate National BMX Titles
27 Mar, 2008 - Rachael Neutze

World No 1 ranked Sarah Walker and Marc Willers dominated the Southern Trust BMX National Championships as expected in Christchurch today.

Walker and Willers were unbeaten to claim their respective national honours today at the North Avon Christchurch BMX Club.

They both won all three motos to qualify top seed for the eight-strong finals. Walkers and Willers were both first to the opening corner and were never threatened from that point.
Taranaki junior Victoria Hill showed her potential and the experience of racing in the Oceania series this year in finishing second behind Walker in the final, with papakura’s Alexandra Williams third.

Hamilton’s Haden De- Boer was second in all three motos and and runner-up to Willers in the elite men’s final.

Former junior world downhill champion Cameron Cole rode in the elite men’s competition although he did not make it to the final after finishing sixth in his motos.

Tauranga’s Kurt Pickard was dominant in the junior men’s class., winning all of his motos with Christchurch’s Matthew Davies second. Pickard has been marked as a rider for the future as he continued his haul of national titles right through the age groups in recent years.

Tomorrow the elites will compete in the super class competition.

Marc Willers (Cambridge) 1, Haden De-Boer (Hamilton) 2, Michael Williams (Papakura) 3.
