On Sunday many Hornsby riders ended their school holidays on a high by competing in the Minikhana Come and Try day held as a Motorcross event at Dargle Farm. This event gave the Minikhana kids a taste of Motorcross with most groups racing 20 on the grid.
The early start to the day meant the grass was frosty however the sun shone throughout the day creating a beautiful warm day for great riding and spectating. once all riders were signed on and the cows were moved off the track the kids all did some siting laps and got to know the bumps and grooves on the track as many of them were riding this track for the first time.
Each class then had 3 x 3 lap races and points were accumulated for an overall winner. A few of our riders were combined with other grades so C grade riders were racing against A grade riders to maximise the grids and all them showed great skill and sportsmanship on the track.
As always the Hornsby kids also shined off the track. The way these kids support each other and look out for each other is to be commended. The Hornsby parents are always proud of our crew!
Well done to all the riders that competed on the day and congratulations to those that were able to take home a trophy and also a big thank you to all the Mum's and Dads that volunteered to marshal, and a HUGE Thank You to the sports committee that ran the event!
