Sovereigns of the sand and sun!
What a beautiful day it turned out to be at the Bunbury KTM, Lake Clifton Enduro Sprint, whether it was beautiful for racing dirt bikes may be up for interpretation though.
The day kicked off in style with a sunrise that was a photographers dream as the trailers rolled forth like a never ending convoy in the gate for round one.
There were sweep riders eagerly appearing in their riding gear ready for the briefing and pre ride and kids with their new toys of all brands popping up left right and centre.
Bunbury KTM had put on a display of a few of their enduro class bikes under the KTM Star tent, with the team riders setting up in there also.
A total of 147 riders, inclusive of 33 non-competitive & 114 competitive. The scrutineering team really had their work cut out for them as the cue increased. Riders briefing was underway just past 8:30 and the sweep riders were undertaking their pre ride, we were on target for a 9:15 sighting lap. So after their final instructions the riders were gearing up ready to head out to the tests.
Needless to say the sighting laps didn’t exactly go to plan, with some riders heading to the wrong test.. Round one jitters we may call it?
After a short delay and the sighting laps repeated we were ready to go. Trail class and sprocket riders were cued up before being called as keen to get out there as anyone.
The Competitive riders were split into younger and older groups, with the olders to complete the longer Red test and the youngers to complete the shorter Blue test and then would swap over after lunch. A total of 8 tests to be completed during the day (4 of each).
Due to the morning delay we had to cut things a bit short, with the older riders only completing 3 of each test and the younger riders completing 3 of the long and 4 of the short test. Albeit with the warmer weather and rough sandy track, there wasn’t a disappointed face in sight at the end of the day. The riders returned from their outings with stories of emus, kangaroos, the odd rogue tree that jumped out and even a curious tiger snake.
Presentations and a few awards went off well in the afternoon, with Sander Taber from Bunbury KTM handing out the medallions and trophies to The class podiums and the sprockets and first timers. It was great to have Sander as a club and round sponsor at our first event for 2021.
I want to send out a massive thank you to all of our volunteers who braved the sun on race day and also to the set up crew and those who stayed behind to help clean up on Sunday, without you all these events could not happen.
Coming up, we have Round 2 of the OCRWA championship series & Round 1 of the Off Road Junior State Championships. Keep May 22 clear for this fantastic event to be held on a fantastic new property near North bannister. Click HERE for the event page and keep checking back regularly for any updates.
