On Sunday 17th March HJDBC were hosts to Rnd 1 of the Interclub series for 2019 and without fail it was going to be yet another wet day of competition with more than 1 months worth of rain predicted over the course of the weekend.
181 riders which included 50 nippers braved the wet conditions and were ready to commence sign on & scrutineering.
After a quick inspection of the grounds it was determined by officials during riders briefing that the events would be cut short slightly. The large MX track couldn’t be used as there was too much standing water and the ‘Figure 8' course was also scrapped for the same reason.
However the small MX track was looking good and this was to be used for the 50cc’s, Miniwheels & nippers only.
That left 5 roped events for the day which included: Orange, Footed Clover, Bending, Slow, Ring Return. All of these areas looked okay but with the continuous rainfall it was going to be challenging to say the least for both riders & marshals.
By 9.00am riding finally got underway as riders and marshals made their way to the event areas. Our 2 largest groups were MW “C” grade with 25 riders & 65cc “C’ grade with 18 riders.
Our nipper riders had use of a dedicated ‘event area’ aswell as bush trails to keep them busy for the day.
The large awning at JT proved to be a popular hang for most of the day as spectators tried to stay dry and watch their riders. The coffee van was also very popular with hot beverages a plenty thanks Xpresso Hornsby.
Congratulations to all riders for attending. For the full list of results click here.

Sunday 3rd March was Round 2 of Series 1. A warm day once again didn't stop eager riders lining up for the many events again.
The morning BBQ kept everyone going and after the compulsory riders briefing 32 helmets, 32 goggles and 64 boots made their way to the pits to start their engines!
One by one our riders left the pit area and headed towards the required event areas. Events of the morning included; Orange, Bending, Ring Return, Slow, Non Footing Clover and AccelR8.
Another amazing BBQ lured everyone back to the clubhouse for an early lunch...we even got to sample some awesome chocolate cake thanks to rider #8...Happy Birthday Summer! We hope you enjoyed your day!
As usual the afternoon session was out on the minicross track with some warm up laps closely followed by heats and finals. The format was slightly changed to 3 lap heats & 3 lap finals to keep the riders busy and it also provided great racing for the spectators too!
Thanks to our volunteers from St Johns who are always trackside just in case! We like it when they are super quiet.
Also a big shout out to Steve Jackson who once again has captured the true passion of this sport and this great club with some amazing photographs. All of the pics from the day can be found here and they are also found in the ‘Gallery’ page of the club website.
Also the ‘points’ for the day have been posted on the website and can also be found here.
