[CentOS] backups and md5 all in one while splitting

I'm trying to back up our svn repositories, and I found a nice little 
backup command line bzip's the backup and creates the md5 hash all in one:

svnadmin dump --deltas /repo |bzip2 |tee dump.bz2 | md5sum >dump.md5

The problem is I need to split the backups, so this doesn't really 
work.  Is there perhaps another way of piping things to allow for 
splitting of the backups?  Currently I'm doing something like this

svnadmin dump --deltas /repo |bzip2 |split - -b 64m
cat *.bz2* | md5sum >dump.md5

Is there a way to do this all in one step?
