Last Sunday 25th April saw the first of the 2018 Minikhana Interclub competitions get underway. The first stop on the list was the Sutherland PCYC minibike club at Lucas Heights. Although it may not have been a very pleasant smell in the air by the tip, there was a strong smell of victory amongst the 20 Hornsby riders which made the trip to compete. The new families fit right in and were welcomed by our 'old' riders and families.
Sutherland had put in an outstanding effort to prepare both the minicross tracks and event areas to a premium level as they hosted 6 events for the day including footing clover, orange, bending, ring return, accelerate & brake and minicross. All riders worked hard and competed well with some close heats and most riders coming away with some places in the final. The conditions were hot and dry but the bond between the riders and their families was strong and although the Hornsby riders enjoyed meeting kids from other clubs they very much looked out for one another and the comradery between them was very obvious.
Our 3 nippers, Harper, Lorenzo and Jamie were exposed to a variety of riding conditions and enjoyed lots of track time.
All our parents marshalled and earned themselves a sun tan in the process.
Congratulations to the following riders who finished the day on the podium.
Jordan #751 - 1st Miniwheels - C Grade
Beau #98 - 2nd 65cc - C Grade
Kye #04 - 1st 85cc BW - C Grade
Our next event is...
Minikhana Series 1 - Rnd 3 on Sunday 8th April. This is shaping up to be a big day of events not only for the club championship but also for the lead up to our very own Interclub later this month. The committee would like to also invite everyone to stay around for a social afternoon after our competition has finished. This would just be for an hour or so and enjoy a beverage and some afternoon snacks. Kids can play around with each other (not on their bikes) and parents can get to know each other over a drink and some food. Hope you will all stay for our social afternoon!! See you Sunday!
