"It's the most numbers we had at a CQ championship"

BMX: Harbour City BMX club president Bruce Crow is excited.

It's because of the success of the Central Queensland Zone Championship which attracted a total of 700 riders and spectators.

Crow said the state of the sport in Central Queensland could not be healthier.

"It's the most numbers we had at a CQ championship in the past five years and there are a lot of young professional riders," he said.

The Gladstone BMX club took out first place for a fourth successive year with Bundaberg second and Rockhampton rounding out the placings.

"Our club seems to bat well above its weight and credit must go to all of the CQ clubs," Crow said.

Among the Gladstone young guns were Paige Guymer who won the Superclass Women ahead of port city's comeback girl Krystal Brezigar.

With BMX an Olympic sport, Crow said events like these help riders reach such goals.

"I reckon there are a couple of kids in our club who are heading in that direction," Crow said.

"Toby and Ben Dunphy are two exceptionally talented young lads."

Crow said new members also impressed.

"We had new members in their first competition riding and some got milestones and good to see them stepping up to the next level," he said.
