Cole boys rolling to top
JUNCTION Hill brothers George and Brock Cole have continued their giant-killing exploits across the country, this time impressing at Mount Gambier’s 2011 South Australian BMX Championships on February 19-20 at Blue Lake BMX Club.
The meeting attracted riders from all over Australia, meaning the best of the best faced off.
Cruiser class (24" BMX bikes) were run on Saturday in rain showers with George qualifying well in the 11 to 12 boys class, but a rare mistake saw him slip from second to fifth place in the last of his semi-finals, missing the final spot in the deciders.
Brock faired better to finish the day with fifth in South Australia for the second year running in the 15 to 16 years boys cruiser.
With Sunday came clearing showers and a freezing cross wind for the 20" class along with a reversal for the brothers.
Brock failed to transfer to the finals after a good early showing to end with ninth in 16 years boys while George rode an action packed finals, crossing the finish line with fifth in South Australia for the 11 years boys.
George will travel to Cairns in April to represent NSW at the National Dynamite finals for 11-year-old boys, after wrapping up the championship in 2010.
The Dynamite series showcases the bestriders from all around Australia, finishing with the finals at the nationals for the chance to be BMX Australia National Dynamite series champion.
The Cole brothers would like to thank Eriks Drizners of Rush Industries for his help in South Australia.
