Howqua rider leads national series

TOP SPOT: Hayden Fletcher leads the pack in one of his races at Nerang.

THE year 2016 started off with a bang for Mansfield/Mt Buller Cycling Club’s Hayden Fletcher.

The 17-year-old was at Nerang on the Gold Coast over the New Year period racing in the first of the seven round 2016 BMX Australia National Series.

Racing in his second year of the Junior Elite class, Fletcher was up against 30 top riders from around Australia, Japan and New Zealand.

The first round was on Friday, January 1.

In the heats or motos as they are called, Fletcher took a clean sweep winning all three.

A comfortable second place in the semi-final gave him plenty of confidence going into the eight man final.
