Last Sunday the 23rd July was the Baulkham Hills Regional held at Horsley Park. The early rise made for a cold start to the day however when the sun came up it warmed us all up and melted the frost and Hornsby were ready to ride.
With over 20 Hornsby riders prepped and ready to represent the HJDBC on the well-organized track which included two mini-cross tracks, one for senior riders and a smaller track for the junior riders.
The events for the day included Orange, Looping, Slow, Non-Footing Clover, Acceler8, Ring Return and Mini-cross.
There were approx. 180 riders in total across 7 clubs. 50 of these were nippers, the largest ever group in a Minikhana Interclubs. The marshals and parents ensure all the nippers were able to experience both Minicross, and some of the other events such as slow, orange and bending in a non-competitive environment. It was great to see so many little riders so eager to do well in this sport.
Most of the groups were getting through the events smoothly however as the day went on the conditions of the track and some of the event areas began to get very dry and dusty which created some very tricky conditions for the riders to negotiate.
Some of the groups had already completed most their events before lunch with only a small number of races left to finish in the second half of the day, riding was over by approx 3pm, which left enough time for the raffle to be drawn and then the final trophy presentation.
