Mr HOGAN (Page) (13:34): Round 2 of the 2017 BMX Interclub Challenge was held recently. It's a competition between local BMX clubs in my region. The Clarence Valley BMX Club's executive—Marnie Brighton, Timothy Botterill, Taya Wear and Stuart Russ—organised what was a great day. Thanks to the hard work of Grant Marsh and Jessica Butler, the track was in great form. Breanna Robertson from the Clarence Valley BMX Club was widely regarded as a stand-out competitor. I'd also like to acknowledge the Casino BMX Club executive: Kylie Sneesby, Danny Rapmund, Liss Rapmund and Kristy Martin. I know they're working hard on making the round 3 interclub challenge a success as well.

There's a great pool of talent across the Northern Rivers BMX community, and this was displayed not only at the interclub challenge but also by Clarence Valley club member and Team Navy rider Brittany Cole as she competed in New Zealand at the North Island BMX championships on the same weekend. Congratulations, Brittany, and well done to everyone involved in the interclub challenge.

I'd like to congratulate sisters Maya and Taquira McGrath and Billy Bradford, who have all been selected to represent New South Wales in the all schools team to compete at the Pacific School Games in Adelaide. This is the pinnacle school sport competition in Australia, and they've done very well to get there; I congratulate them.
