The first ‘Junior Only Event’ of 2021 was held last weekend, with perfect weather conditions for riding. 

Once again we had three categories for the juniors, with Junior SNR, Junior A and Junior B. 

It was great to see returning riders as well as new rider Deegan enjoying the tracks.

The Junior B category with six riders, rode 3 laps of the Junior Track with Hamilton Anflous once again claiming victory in this category, improving with every race he rides. 

Junior A category with three riders, rode three laps of the Junior track and Conrod. 

Dominic Carberry placing first. 

Junior SNR category complete five laps of the Short Course and Conrod. 

Three riders competed in this category with Riley Merton taking first place, well done Riley. 

Holly Borchard in second (rookie mistake made on the day which cost her) and Patrick Carberry in third who was unfortunate to get a flat tyre mid race but came back to the line, pumped it up and smashed out his remaining laps.  

Once again a massive thank you to all the volunteers on the day, this is not only from the organisers but the kids riding on the day. 

I am sure they love all the help and encouragement they get along the way.

Our next event is Sunday (March 7), starting from 8am (more details on the Facebook page). 

Seniors and Junior SNR will be completing a Time Trial with Junior A, Junior B & Senior Social completing laps. 

Even though we call these events races, it is not always about racing. 

It’s about taking getting out on your bike and riding, whether you race your heart out or come out for a ‘Sunday ride’ everyone is more than welcome.
