Day 2 - Satuday July 26: UCI BMX World Challenge

Callan & Darrell double world champions; drama-filled race in the Men's 17+ category

By Tracey Tilsed in Perth

Day two of the 2003 UCI BMX World Championships saw 726 riders take to the track to compete for the title of world champion in twenty-two Challenge Classes.

Although there were a few serious spills, the number of casualties were a lot less than on the first day of racing; in all, 472 races were conducted so that the 2003 world champions could be crowned.

Australia's Joshua Callan added a second 2003 world title to his name when he won the 12 Boys category. Callan was also victorious in the 12 and under Cruiser event on the first day of the championships. Kurt Pickard from New Zealand finished second, whilst Facundo Narpe finished third.

Fellow countryman, Leigh Darrell, added to his 15 & 16 Cruiser title that he won yesterday when he took out the 16 Boys Challenge Class. Finishing in second place was Ewoud Stam from The Netherlands, with Australia's Chris Johns in third place.

Last year's champion in the 12 Girls category, Joyce Seesing fom The Netherlands, added the 13 Girls title to her list of achievements, when she crossed the line ahead of Australian's Caroline Buchanan and Ashleigh Weier.

Australian, Melissa Mankowksi, added a sixth World Championship to her trophy cabinet when she took out the 15 Girls category. Mankowski was the 14 Girls champion in 2002 and was overcome with emotion when she crossed the finishing line. Mankowksi finished ahead of New Zealands Sarah Walker and Australia's Chloe Fransen.

Argentina's Ramiro Martin Marino went up a category in the 2003 world championships, after he won the 14 Boys title at the 2002 championships in Brazil. Marino showed class when he held off a fast finishing Columbian, Juan Pablo Vasquez to win the 15 Boys title. Marino was travelling at full speed across the finishing line, and stacked his bike in the marshalling area. The Argentinian was unhurt. Alex Neseveski from Australia finished third.

The 17 and Over Men's final brought the crowd to their feet with riders racing at a fast and furious pace, pushing their bikes and themselves to the limit. With riders getting plenty of air between their bikes and the track, the crowd was on the edge of their seats. Australia's Christian Cabassi lead the field into the home straight and looked certain to have the world title in his grasp, only to crash to the dirt 3 metres from the finishing line. USA's Barry Noble came through to finish first, with Julien Paquien from France in second, and Australia's Cloin Malcolm back in third place.

At the end of the day's racing, Australia had won 12 titles, the Netherlands, Argentina and the USA claimed two each, whilst Chile, France, Canada and Bolivia would all be taking one title home.
