Backyard Jam BMX Series Round 6

Saturday hosted Round 6 of the Backyard Jam National BMX Freestyle Series. The youth categories have improved massively as the season has progressed, and the future is looking bright for BMX Freestyle.

Series regulars Jason Urbas and Billy-Neil McVicar took the wins in the men’s under 9 and under 12 classes respectively, with the latter blasting the biggest quarter in the park. In his first appearance at the series, Harry Schofield made himself known in the under 15’s category by taking the win, with Alfie Crocker earning second and Chase Weighill in third.

In the youth female categories, there were a lot of familiar faces, with Alex Cartmell taking the top spot on the podium in the under 9's, while Hettie Randall came in second. Esme Morris took first in the under 12's and Elsa Rendall Todd took the win in under 15's.

In the women’s street class, Michelle Sikorska took the win after a super creative run during which she managed to stomp two of her best tricks. Kayley Ashworth came in second, being the only girl to take to the down rail for her best trick, as Aubree Henson came in third.

The men’s amateur street saw lots of promising talent for the next generation, but it was Logan Foster who took the win. For his best trick, he landed a massive tail-whip drop on his second go, while his first attempt would have taken most riders out for the rest of the day. Petr Komon came in second, landing a massive gap to wallride for his best trick, and Ethan Mumford took third.

In the men’s elite street event, Alex Pindard Baden won after nailing an incredibly technical run, filled with big moves. Alex Kennedy took second, and Michael Dickson took third, landing a nollie tailwhip off one of the up ledges.

The men's amateur park featured an unbelievable standard of riding as Reef Way took the win, looking extremely comfortable on the massive ramps in the wAIRhouse. Miller Temple earned second place after a strong run, and Morgan Thornley took the final podium place.

In the men’s elite park, Kieran Reilly unleashed everything on the park, throwing an insane list of combos including a 360 triple whip, a double flair and a 720 tailwhip. Jack Clark effortlessly flowed around the park, mixing big moves with technical lip tricks. Ben Wallace took third, being the only rider to use the wallride gap from the jump box.

The riders in the women’s elite park field put on a stunning show for the audience. Charlotte Worthington took the win after landing a flair on the biggest quarter in the park in the first half of her run. She finished her run with a textbook tailwhip in the final second. Sasha Pardoe took second, landing massive tricks over the box with effortless style, and Kayley Asworth came in third.
