THE Tamworth City BMX Club has enjoyed some of its best-ever results at the recent state titles in Singleton.
The club sent its biggest contingent of members, who competed in a variety of different categories and events.
Among the top performers was club president Dan Morris, who claimed first place in the 17-24 men's cruiser category and second in the 17-24 men's category.
Morris said the event was one of the club's best outings since 2010.
"As a club, we really gave a good account of ourselves at this year's state titles," Morris said.
"I think across all age groups and categories, we were really well represented and I couldn't be prouder of how we went.
"As well as that, we were also able to unveil our club's new banner and begin an exciting new chapter for our club."
Zac Whalan was among the club's best performers, claiming first place in the 12-boys category.
"It was really pleasing to see Zac do so well, because I have been helping to coach him a little bit in recent months," Morris said.
"We have been doing it online because I am based in Sydney, and while it is tough sometimes it is good to see it working out well."
Morris said he was enjoying his new coaching responsibilities within the club.
"I've been helping out coaching for most of the year now, and I have to say I have been enjoying it," he said.
"I probably haven't really been focusing on my own fitness and training as much because of that, which is why my state title results were so pleasing.
"But it has been really rewarding and something I'm eager to continue doing going forward."
The annual event also saw the running of the highly anticipated Stoney Re-run Race, honouring Tamworth's own Mark Stones.
"Stoney is really well respected and having this race named after him is just a small way to honour his commitment to the sport," Morris said.
"He is there for every major event and this race is a great way to honour a really committed bloke."
Morris said he was confident the titles were the start of "big things" for the club.
"We are hoping to gain some funding to help us host a major event here next year," he said.
"At the moment we are waiting to hear back about a funding application, which would allow us to upgrade the track.
"Tamworth, as a track, provides people with a nostalgic feeling and if we were able to host a major event next year it would have everyone feeling that way.
"Hopefully we can get that one across the line."
