'Go Hornsby!' We were all pleased to hear this in many of the podium presentations at the Sutherland Interclub last Sunday. All our riders' dedication and hard work paid off with the club coming third place overall in the seventh and final round of the State Minkhana series held at the Sutherland PCYC club on Sunday 17th September 2017.
The day started bright and early with sign on, scrutineering and riders briefing. The morning excitement was in the surprise element in each show bag!
The events got underway nice and early with a full demo class leading the pack. Well done Harper #93, our only Hornsby demo rider for this meet.
The other classes slowly made their way through the six events; footing clover, accelerate and brake, ring return, orange, bending and mini cross. Great sportsmanship was always shown by the Hornsby riders.
With a lunchtime breaking up the day the events were all complete by about 3.30pm with a few classes needing to go to a runoff to decide winners.
The raffle and presentation completed the day with many Hornsby riders taking away a podium place, some riders for the first time at an interclub and some only missing out by a point or two. The competition was alive!
