What a great day of practice! We had 13 eager riders ready to hone their skills and get some final practice before our big event at our Hornsby Interclub next weekend.
The conditions were great compared to the really hot weather we have been experiencing over the past couple of weeks and the track and event areas were also all in great shape.
With the small group of riders for the day, we were able to stick together as one group and tackle each event area one by one. This was a great opportunity for the younger kids to see how the older more experienced kids get through some of the courses and it also gave plenty of time to run through each event without the pressure of marshals, flags, heats and finals.
After a couple of hours riding we had moved through the same 6 events that will be run at our Regional next weekend and that gave us just enough time to complete some warm up laps on the minicross track before lunch.
The rest of the afternoon was mainly spent on the track where our riders were split into 3 main groups. This allowed for 3 lap motos with riders whom wouldn’t normally go up against each other there was even some sibling rivalry between some of our riders but thankfully everyone rode well and left just enough room for each other without any incidents.
The riders looked to be having plenty of fun and we finished the day off with 30 minutes or so back at event area 1 & 2 where riders did some intense last minute practice of Looping and Orange.
All in all it was a great day of riding and good luck to all our riders who will be competing next weekend! Looking forward to seeing you there!
