THE fourth and final round of the Hayes Hawks BMX autumn club race series wrapped up on Saturday (16).

Everyone was in a festive mood and deputy mayoress Cllr Coleen Sullivan and John McDonnell MP went along to help with the prize-giving.

The event was also supported by Alex Wukovich, whose filming of the event will feature on the Aperture BMX Racing Channel on YouTube.

Some new faces turned up to race for the first time, which was good to see. Club racing provides the opportunity for all new riders to try racing in a supportive coach-led environment.

All eyes, however, were on who would win the series. As usual the six and unders brought the thunder.

Reggie Hodson triumphed, with Aubrey Brunsden second and David Levytskyy third.

Ivan Bannin won the mixed 11-12 Novice and, despite being on holiday, Davide Lolli claimed the No.1 trophy as he was unbeaten over the last three rounds.

Chay Young and Johnny Jackson, two of the club’s youth coaching team, took first and third respectively. The club is dedicated to developing youth coaches who learn alongside head coach Mark Seaman.

For many of the riders in the Novice categories, this four-race series was their first experience of racing.

The Stocks brothers not only showed up at every round but triumphed in their respective age categories. Similarly, the Prichard siblings took first and third.

Georgia Surtees achieved an overall first place and Tom Budd third.

Ethan Wassell and Poppy Oliver, who both took home fifth place in their respective age categories, were presented with medals by John McDonnell.

The day was rounded off with a raffle, which raised £577 towards track developments.
