Champions lead BMX charge
BRUCE Baldwin and Ryan Young led a strong Harbour City BMX club charge at the 2005 DK State Age BMX Championships in Toowoomba recently.
As reported in The Observer earlier this week, Young took out the eight years boys state title, while Baldwin was crowned as the state champion in the 4044 Master Men category.
The two state championships headlined a fine weekend by members of the Harbour City Club. Australian team member Krystal Cranfield placed second in the AA Open ladies, while Emma-Rebecca Baldwin and Caitlyn Ward were as close as you could get, finishing second in their age groups.
Ward had some consolation though, being named in the Queensland team for next year's nationals. Ashleigh Baldwin returned home with two thirds, while Jade Jeremy, Blake Young, IrisMay Cosgrove and Kylie Jeremy also scored third placings.
Phil Brezigar and Casey Riggs were happy with their fourths, while Peter Cowper, Graeme Riggs, Juliana Nesevski, KaylaMay Cosgrove and youngster Robert Baldwin picked up fifth placings.
Timothy Rigby and Ryan Spencer collected sixth place, while Shannon White, Matthew Ohl, Nathan Ward, Brendan Cranfield and Adrian Jeremy all scored top 10 finishes.
Other riders to perform well were Joel Spencer, Benjamin Baldwin, Robert Southgate, Alex Nesevski, Jeremy Cosgrove, Kye McWaters, Luke Davis, Craig Hall, Jordan Young, Connor Hall, Gordon Smith, Jordan Young, Harley Schmith and Nicholas Smith.
Harbour City BMX club had the third largest representation of any club at the titles.
