BMX double-header thrills

THE sun was out on the weekend and so were the BMX riders at the Clarence Valley BMX Track in South Grafton.

It was a double-header weekend with racing on Saturday and again on Sunday to make up for the days that have been washed out this year.

Work has started on the new track drainage with great results already.

This allowed the large volume of water from the rain to drain away from the corners of the track, which would normally stop the BMX club from racing if it rained only a couple of days before racing.

The BMX club is also building raised earth mounds to allow more spectators to come along to watch the action.

The BMX club is always in need of clean fill to keep improving the track and grounds.

If you can help out with the clean fill just get in contact with the BMX club.

There were plenty of big smiles and lots of tried riders after a full on BMX weekend.

Saturday brought a strong field of riders in all age groups of male and female riders.

Even when the races were finished for the day keen riders kept on enjoying themselves into the night trying new tricks and jumps.

The racing on Sunday was in the morning and gave some riders who normally can't make it to the Saturday racing because of work or other commitments the chance to get back into the sport they enjoy.

There will be no racing at the South Grafton BMX track next weekend owing to the large number of riders travelling to Taree to represent the Clarence Valley in the River City BMX Classic.
