Jonno was invited to compete in the Head 2 Head Enduro Cross at the Sydney Motorcycle Show this past weekend, against the top Trails and Enduro riders in Australia. The course consisted on tyre double and log jumps, tyre and log obstacles and a narrow plank of timber jump.
Friday saw the mercury rise to over 40 degrees for the afternoon session of practice and the competitors finding it hard going and being Jonno's first time at Enduro Cross, found himself totally exhausted at the end of practice.
Once Jonno had time to rehydrate, he had a chance to look around the show and was able to have a photo shoot and chat with one of his idols, Robbie Maddison.
Saturday saw Jonno back at the Stadium at 11am on his Procycles prepared KTM SX250 - 2016, for practice and time qualification. The weather had changed dramatically from the day before, with the temperature below 20 degrees. Race time started at 2pm and saw the Stadium fill with over 2000 people, which daunted Jonno a little bit. Race time come and all fear was gone as Jonno won his three heats and more into the finals. The finals consisted rider elimination and saw Jonno finish fourth on the day
Sunday, Jonno was back at the Stadium again ready for another round of Enduro Cross, in front of a similar sized audience as the day before. This round of time splits at practice and time qualification, saw Jonno's time splits between the top riders and himself dramatically reduced (top rider completing the course in 35 seconds and Jonno completing the course in 42 seconds). With the better time split, Jonno was up against the Transmoto test rider, who just pipped Jonno in the three heats.
Once again Louee Motocross complex was host to this years Xmas club weekend which consisted of 3 days riding
and presentations to see out the 2015 season of riding.
We had a much larger turn out of members attending this year compared with last year and it was a great opportunity for all our members to get away and enjoy a few days away from the usual club surroundings and enjoy the fantastic facilities the Louee motocross complex has to offer. The weather was perfect for riding all weekend with the exception of a few thunderstorms in the evenings which settled the dust from the previous days riding. The presentation kicked off on Saturday evening with the final club championship places, overall club champion, Regional minikhana acheivment award, most improved rider and attendance awards.

Congratulations to all riders and families for yet another outstanding year for the Hornsby Club, Merry Xmas from the 2015 committee. We hope you enjoy the festive season and we look forward to seeing you all and NEW members for the 2016 season.
Well it wasn’t our birthday but the club celebrated the last round of the year in style with a large number of riders turning out for a fantastic days competition. In addition to our normal competition, our Annual General Meeting for 2015 was to take place and there were also a number of riders ready to battle it out for the final prize, the overall club championship.
The day got off to an early start with bacon and egg rolls on offer while riders signed on and scruitineering got underway. By 9.45am our AGM was completed and riders could roll onto the event areas.
6 events were completed during the morning session:
Clover, Non Footing Clover, Slow, Orange, Bending, and Ring Bending. After lunch the competition shifted to the minicross track where the last handful of points were on offer. There were 2 x minicross events during the afternoon and again we were treated to some very close racing on the dry and dusty track. We also had a couple of parade laps from 2 of senior riders who are leaving us after the 2015 season. This was a good opportunity for the youger riders to clap and cheer as they watched they’re older competitors go around for one last time.
Congratulations to all who competed on the day and good luck to all who placed in the club championship.
As mentioned above the day started with our Annual General Meeting which was a great success and a big thankyou to all the new members that have joined the committee for the upcoming 2016 season. Also a big thankyou to the outgoing committee members who have devoted so much time and effort into this season and previous seasons. Without this kind of support our kids would not have a club to compete at.
Finally a special thanks to 'The French Kitchen' for supplying this awesome cake for the day!
