Kiwi BMX star Mark Willers has won his second Olympic qualifying event, taking out the elite men's final at the Oceania Continental Championship in Pukekohe.

Willers also leads the ABA series in America, where he took out the first of the five Olympic Continental qualifiers earlier this year.

It was a clean sweep for New Zealand at the new Puni supercross track with the 2009 world champion Sarah Walker also taking out the women's elite race, going undefeated in all her motos and the main, while Christchurch's Daniel Franks claimed the junior elite men's event.

The Oceania championships attracted the best riders from Australia, the United States as well as New Zealand.
