What a turn out it was for our first Round of Series 1 last Sunday 17th February. The hot and dry conditions couldn't keep away 44 eager riders to have some fun, learn new skills and try to earn themselves points for what looks to be an exciting series.
The day started a little differently than usual with a Mexican wave to get the kids into the spirit of the day (and conveniently fill in time until riding can commence at 9.30am). Thanks to a very organized committee and a great team of helpers for having everything ready to go on time.
65cc and Miniwheels both had 10 riders with very tight competition and a great level of skill, especially considering it's only the first round and many of our riders are new. 50cc was our smallest group with only 2 riders, however, great competition was still witnessed.
Events included: Slow, Ring Return, Orange, Bending, AccelR8, Non-Footing Clover and Minicross.
The canteen was well prepped thanks to our canteen team with sausages and burgers for all!
Our podium winners for the day were:
50cc Auto - 1st Sienna #32
Miniwheels - 1st Chad #17
65cc - 1st Sam #150
85cc - 1st Byron #61, and
Junior Big Wheels - 1st Declan #91
Our 6 nippers were;
Karl # 214
Congratulations to all riders who competed on the day as the conditions were very hot & dry. Also a big congrats to all parents, family members & friends who helped make the day possible.
