BRAINTREE Bullets BMX Club have risen to the top of the overall BMX East Club League points table after some awesome results at their home round.

With 57 entries across the classes, the club had strength in numbers.

And their 36 main finalists scored nine class wins for a massive points haul, in the third round of the BMX East Summer Regional Series.

The biggest win of the day came in the Superclass final as Adam Gilbert took his first Elite class win amongst the fastest racers from across the East.

The racing was tight, but Gilbert hit the front and dominated the lap to go unbeaten through the days racing.

Club mate Josh Wallis cut some moves mid pack to chase Gilbert to the line in second with Matt Goodwins a little further back in sixth.

Gilbert also won the 15-29 cruiser class ahead of Cam Parrish (second), Joe Harris (third) and Josh Cates (fifth).

Molly Nice did the business for the girls in the 17+ BMX and cruiser classes.

Nice has been on a roll all season and leads out both classes in the overall points ahead of club mate Roxy Hinton.

The youngest Bullet to take a class win was Noah Ford in the eights.

Ford showed a clean pair of wheels to the rest of the class as he went unbeaten through the day for his first regional win.

Zach Parsons made the class podium in his first regional race to claim third with Travis Sykes rounding out the field in seventh.

Max Lawrence continued his domination of the ten year olds class as he went unbeaten all day on his route to the final.

He had to work for the class win though after a slip at the start saw him work through the pack.

Finn Heighes battled mid pack to finish sixth.

Allegra Trew rose to the occasion on her home track in the girls class to claim second and her fastest lap time.

The next class win for the Bullets came in the 12s as Heath Thomas dominated the finals.

A mechanical in the third heat cost him a clean sheet for the day, but he was untouchable as head took the win with club mate Ryan Kelsey also in the finals finishing sixth.

Thomas also won the 9-12 cruiser class on his first attempt at racing the big wheels.

In the equivalent girls' class, Lily Heighes made her mark in second after some awesome corner battles and Caitlin Yeo claimed fourth in a last straight drag race.

Another win for the Bullets came in the 14s as Louis Tay-Edwards put on a show in the 14s to claim victory after missing a couple of weeks through injury.

Jonathan Yeo gave chase in fourth, Joseph Long claimed fifth and Jay Teale-Simpson finished sixth.

Also making the podiums were Aston Kightly and Joe Archer in the sevens, Max Giovine in the nines and James Yeo and Andy Heighes in the 30+ cruiser.

Amongst the other finalists were Dan Williamson, Alex Boughton and Adam Arnold in the nines, and Freia Challis, Rudy Mildenhall and Eddie Cannons in the 16s.

The Bullets venture to Gosport for rounds three and four of the National Series this weekend and their home Summer series will continues on Wednesday evenings from May-August.
