Who’d have thunk it … The Kick Starters had fabulous weather for dirt biking on Saturday, and that afternoon, you’d have thought we were in line for more of the same for our second practice day Sunday. But no; the alarm clock heralded a huge downpour that lubricated the car packing exercise, and then was on and off for the rest of the day.
Of course, these machines are not called clean bikes … and the Hornsby family set to to get some practice in. Event area 1 hosted Looping and Bending; Slow was delightfully slow; Accelerate and Brake was fun in the mud; (Wet) Footed Clover was challenging; Mini-cross was a blast with up to 12 on the track and puddles galore; and enduro got a look in again too. The Nippers sampled a bit of most, with some coaching thrown in.
Hard to see under those helmets, but pretty sure there were a lot of smiles today.
Welcome to those new to the Hornsby family who were having their first Hornsby day today. Lovely to welcome new members to the club.
Many thanks to Karen and Kristen for sorting the canteen, and to the Marklew family for their kind donation of sausages for today’s feast.
Thanks to Rod and Beau for assistance with the impromptu nippers clinic today.
Photos on Smugmug as usual. Note the change to the Smugmug home page … a new carolsel at the top of the page randomises through the latest posts. Galleries follow.
