Next Level Non-Stop
The Perth Husqvarna, Narrakine Nonstop & Junior State Championship Round was not one to be missed.
With a brand new format, inclusive of separate prologue track, live interactive pit lane and 16.5km of one of the most diverse tracks we’ve built in recent times.
-1deg recorded in Williams set us off to a chilly start on Saturday morning, but this didn’t deter the 150 strong riders that fronted up for the bright and early rego and scrutineering.
The new U shaped pit lane looked the busines with shop tents and flags popping up side with round sponsor Perth Husky front and centre..
The little Husky electric Stacyc bike on display drew some attention, with the offer of a quick sale on race day by Clayton of the Husky team.
Riders briefing was underway at 8:30 and the sweep riders were undertaking their pre ride. Talks of a jam packed day in the order of Younger Prologue Sighting Lap & Timed Prologue Hot Lap and straight into the Competition track sighting lap… once the youngers had cleared the prologue track the older boys and girls could start their prologue.
This had the race management team on their toes, working to a timeline that was tighter than a hangman’s noose! But as was commented at the end of the day “we pulled it off”.
Our Race start was not what the club was used to, with a bunch of West Aussies set to race the Hattah desert race, we made every effort to mimic what the riders would experience what they were in for over the borders..
Riders were lined up in their prologue seeded order from 1-30 in the morning race and 1-90 in the afternoon, ready to be let loose by the club buggy with our flags flying high.
With the morning race underway just after 9:30am the action had really begun, with the early riders completing their first lap (12.5km) in just over 18 minutes, this would mean our fastest riders would complete 5 full laps (62.5km) by the races end. The track did not disappoint with the riders well and truly having enough by the time they saw the checkered flag.
As the morning race wound up, the older riders sat eagerly on the start line waiting for their sighting lap… and as the final morning riders crossed the line, they were off… after a good 30 mins they returned from the 16.5km trek, ready to refuel, hydrate and set off for the 2hr mission in front of them.
The line-up was a spectacle of its own, with the 90 riders in their seeded order ready to roll, Buggy and quad set to launch them into the bush… The call went out just before 2pm, we are good to go.. the sound of 90 bikes 2 and 4 stroke roaring as the spectators had their cameras ready… and they were off like the race was to be won before the start line..
Our afternoons fastest rider came through in just over 21mins (Benny Lynch), so we were in for a full 6 laps for our top riders or 100km at a full race pace, after the second lap the pit strategies started playing out, with fuel stops, hydration and plenty of thumbs up.
As we headed into the dying minutes the riders were looking more and more tired as they crossed the line, the clock hit 2 hrs and there was a mere 7 riders left on the lead lap..
Presentations did head slightly into dusk as the light faded, there was massive thanks that went out to the Johnstone family for their amazing property and the riders did not have a complaint.. the track was described as Tough, Challenging, but so awesome….!
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 4 of the OCRWA championship series & Round 3 of the Off Road Junior State Championships. Keep July 17th clear for this fantastic event to be held on a well-known property near Calingiri.
