On Sunday 10th July HJDBC held the fourth and final round of Series 1 after round 3 was eventually scratched from the calendar due to the heavy rain that we experienced a few weeks ago.
Although it was a foggy start to the day we had a small group of 22 riders turn up, all very keen to get on the bikes and ride as soon as possible. Once scrutineering and riders briefing was complete, riding commenced nice and early. In total there were 7 events planned for the day which included footing clover, non-footing clover, ring return, orange, bending and looping and all the classes managed to finish before 11.30 am which meant riders had just enough time to get some sighting laps of the Minicross track done before lunch.
After another exceptional BBQ lunch riders were back on the Mini-cross track ready to get racing. As always the girls and boys gathered to support one another behind the tyre walls as the riders battled for the checkered flag.
With very muddy bikes and gear, the results ended up this way:
50cc Auto: 1st Jack #170
MW: 1st Lucy #34
65cc: 1st Will #693
85cc SW: 1st Jack #151
85cc BW: 1st Oli #628
There are 2 x practice days coming up; This Saturday 16/7/2016 and the following Saturday 23/7/2016 both commencing at 11am till approx. 3.30pm. Come anytime Cost is $25.00 ride fees or buy a 10 pack ride pass for $200.00
There will be no canteen in operation so please bring food and drinks.
Last Sunday saw the second and final round of the MX twin series between HJDBC and Mt Kuringai. All competitors were ready and raring to go nice and early and enjoyed the relaxed and fun atmosphere of only having to do minicross for the day.
After fueling their bodies with a bbq breaky the nippers got the day underway as they tested the well prepared track from the successful working bee the day before. (A huge thank you to all the members who were able to attend the working bee and support our club).
This was closely followed by the 50cc autos showing some great skill at the start line. Next up were the Mini-wheel racers with only 3 x competitors for the day, each happily placing every race. Once again the largest group of the day, the 65cc's enjoyed the competitive nature of mini-cross but showed great companionship cheering each other on and sharing encouraging words on and off the track. The 85's concluded the event and as always put on a good show with their riding experience evident.
Each class squeezed 6 races in for the day stopping for another bbq at lunchtime (Thanks again to the chefs!).
Presentations followed and the following Hornsby riders made it onto the podium:
1st 50cc Auto - Ben #580
2nd 50cc Auto - Jack #170
1st Miniwheels - Ethan #38
1st 65cc - Levi #765
3rd 85cc SW - Brad #25
1st 85cc BW - Ella #855
As always a day like this doesn't just happen. Lots of hard work from the Hornsby club committee members went into preparing the day and this was evident by the success of the day.
Also a special thanks to all our key officials on the day as well as all marshall's and parents for making the day a success. We have the Baulkham Hills Regional coming up next on 24th July. Please keep checking back for details of scheduled meets.
