Over Labour weekend, Jake Earnest Year 9 competed at the 2018 BMX North Island Titles at Mountain Raider BMX club in Pakuranga. This is the second largest event in the New Zealand BMX calendar with approx 580 riders attracting over 1000 spectators; The event was also streamed live through Facebook with viewers watching from all over the world. There were some spectacular racing; Jake was going extremely well over the two days of competition. He was unable to hold off his closest competitor who is currently ranked 6th in the world, and Jake finished 2nd in the 13 Year old Boys final. Great effort all round.
