Having run a successful event the first time around on a newly-built track, BMX club in Zone 7 will again play host to another round of the Western Cape BMX championships on Saturday May 21.

SA number 1 cruiser George Roth will also be out for top honours as he came second last time the championships were held in Zone 7, with Darryn Stow ahead of him. Stow together with his brother, Brad will once again be expected to give Roth a run for his money, with Darryn also ranked number 1 in the country in the over 30s.

Young riders in the likes of Cruz Hendry and Dylan Wiggill will be again looking to make the most of the home track in front of their parents in their parents in the junior categories.

After the completion of the two rounds, four will remain as the championships are on a home stretch to crown the best BMX riders in the Western Cape.
