Sunday saw a relaxed atmosphere down at the Hornsby club with an all day Enduro fun day. We enjoyed a slightly later start than usual however with the track already set up from the previous working bee riders were able to get riding by approx 10am.
The format of the day was fairly simple with riders lining up at the start of the loop at event area 1 and then each rider set off with approx 10 - 20 sec gap intervals. We also had dads as sweep riders riding with the kids to make sure there were no fallen riders and to also help out in the tricky conditions when needed. We also had some marshals scattered throughout the bush at the cut off points to help guide the riders around the track.
The loop consisted of some familiar sections of the Minicross track and some established tight single trails that have been used on past enduro days. Riders had the option to ride the full 1.4km loop or they could use the ‘cut off’ section for a much shorter loop. They also had the option to take a great little ‘new’ section of trail that was very technical in spots and then linked up to the main track.
Thanks to all the parents marshals and officials who helped run the day and also a big thanks to the parents who attended the working bee the day before to help setup the course with bunting and prepare the grounds for the day. And finally thanks to the sweep riders who also helped make the day run safely, it was hard to tell who had the biggest grin on their faces, the kids or the dads!.
We now have a two week break before our next round of the club championship to be held on Sunday 3rd September.
