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.
