Joel Brown has put the icing on an already stellar year by taking out the Hardcore FMX Trans Tasman challenge on Norfolk Island. Browny along with a host of other Aussie and Kiwi contingent hit Norfolk Island for an end of year getaway and a chance to compete in a very unique setting.
Not only were individual honours on the line, but the age-old Aus V Kiwi battle was hotly contested, although we're glad to announce that the Aussie brough home the bacon.
In the final, it was incredilbly close betweeen Browny and Kain Saul, with a missed seat-grab flip from Sauly the deciding factor in the end result. Ryan Brown (who was drafted into the Kiwi team) showed more of his briliant form of late to land on the final spot on the podium.
