Brothers have fatter wallets



WALKERSTON'S Wallin brothers, Brett and Michael, cashed in on a Rockhampton BMX meeting on the weekend.

Riding in the 14 years plus money class, with almost $900 up for grabs, Brett hit the lead early and despite the pack cranking hard, they could not catch the Walkerston flyer who won from Michael and Rockhampton's Josh Hurt.

In the Dynamic 10s feature race Queensland No. 3 Nathan Cook won by the barest of margins.

Cook eventually claimed line honours from Rockhampton's Clay Green and Maryborough's Shaun Marstella.

It was a double celebration for Cook, who also won the 10 years boys class.

The 4-7 years sprockets were well represented with more than 30 riders.

There were few crashes on the day, but Liam Doherty provided a spectacular exit, going over the handlebars on the last straight in his race.

Jonny Belling followed through, collecting Doherty's bike rather than the rider.

The two-day event attracted a massive field of 220 riders on the North Rockhampton Hollingsworth Street track.
