The Anarchy BMX Australia team was in full effect at the Australian BMX Championships last weekend. Western Australian Cat Hopkins and Victorian James Lautier debuted the Australian Team Jersey at the Mount Gambier track and with great success.
Cat finished eighth in the elite womens class at the 2011 Australian Championships and, despite carrying a nagging knee injury, was out to prove it was no fluke. Lining up against some of the biggest names in international BMX Cat held her own and once again made the main. When the dust settled in the final Cat had finished in seventh, a very respectable result in a strong field.
James has been struggling to mix study with riding but in each moto of Junior Elite he proved he had what it takes to make the final. It was just a couple of mistakes that kept him from transferring out of the motos. James however took it in his stride and when he raced the Elite Cruiser class he dominated, and was the only elite cruiser rider jumping the pro section. James went on to take the #1 in Elite Cruiser.
