North Bannister Super Sprint
We dodged the rain again at the Perth Husqvarna, North Bannister Super Sprint & Junior State Championship Round 1.
It was a little unfortunate that the format had to change from a Cross Country Sprint to a Super Sprint, but it was obvious that that was the right decision once the racing had begun.
Again at 6am the campers, trailers and vans started to role in as the Friday night die hards scrambled out of their beds.
The pit lane was looking a million bucks with shop tents and flags popping up side by side led by round sponsor Perth Husky in prime position..
The kids were in awe of the little Husky electric EE5 bike that was on display (and so were the dads, I might add)
A total of 157 riders, inclusive of 31 non-competitive & 126 competitive. The scrutineering team again had their work cut out for them with the increased rider numbers. Riders briefing was underway just past 8:30 and the sweep riders were undertaking their pre ride.
Our sighting lap got underway without a hitch, but it was obvious at that point that a mass race start as originally intended would not be a safe option.
Once the sighting laps were completed and the final decision was made to run the event as a super sprint, we were off and racing.
The Competitive riders were split into younger and older groups as with Lake Clifton, with the olders to complete the longer Blue extension and the youngers to complete only the shorter Red section with a planned 4 motos for all classes over the day. Sprocket riders were given a treat with their track prestige marked out by our spockets team.
Racing ran smoothly during the day with a couple of stand outs from the crowd, Nathan Howe a long time club member returned from the east to show us all how it was done & local up and comer Benny Lynch was hot on his tail, these boys certainly put on a show for the crowds at a venue that was awesome for a bit of spectator entertainment.
There were a lot of tired faces by the days end, the rocky conditions had taken their toll but on the most part the riders loved the track.
Presentations began and along came the rain, with our Perth Husky representative handing out the medallions and trophies to The class podiums and the sprockets and first timers.
Again we would like to send out a massive thank you to all of our volunteers who came out for set up the previous weekend & Friday, those who volunteered on race day and also those who stayed behind to help clean up on Sunday, without you all these events could not happen.
Coming up, we have Round 3 of the OCRWA championship series & Round 2 of the Off Road Junior State Championships. Keep June 19th clear for this fantastic event to be held on a fantastic new property near Williams (Narrakine). Click HERE for the event page and keep checking back regularly for any updates.
