Sunday 22nd September saw 39 Hornsby riders meet for Round 3 of Series 2 which was the second last opportunity to add points to their Series 2 total for the year. Just a week after the Sutherland regional boys and girls were keen to get on the home track for more riding, racing and friendly rivalry.
5 x Nippers practiced their skills
4 x 50cc riders competed in all events as heat finals
8 x 65cc kids battled out each event sharing placings each time, keeping everyone in suspense to the final day’s outcome
7 x Mini-wheel participants balanced their way through all events
7 x 85 competitors raced until their hearts were content putting in 100% all day
7 x JBW young men and 1 young lady strived to do their best both on and off the track.
Today’s events included: footed clover, bending, orange, ring return, slow, looping and mini-cross.
As the weather is increasing, so is the number of sand flies so the insect spray was put to good use! The track was in good condition after a bit of rain with some parts of the track being widened to cater for the larger number of bikes on the start grid.
The level of riding improves week in, week out. Well done to all the kids and adults involved. A great day was had by all.
The podiums for the day were:
1st - #32 2nd - #25 3rd - #5
1st - #45 2nd - #17 3rd - #8
1st - #150 2nd - #62 3rd - #751
