Siblings Ricky and Vivienne Taylor, of Ripon, returned home from Santa Clara PAL BMX with new hardware this past weekend.

The two Ripona Elementary students placed in the USA BMX Golden State Nationals.

Ricky took first in both of his races in the 10-year old novice division, beating out 10 other competitors.

Vivienne took seventh out of 14 in the 7-year-old novice race Saturday but took third on Sunday.

Both train five days a week at Spreckels Park BMX in Manteca. Ricky will go after his 10th win of the season this Sunday at Spreckels Park BMX, while Vivienne eyes her fourth.
