Maclean bikers raise the dust

FANS of Motocross were treated to an awsesome day of racing last Sunday as competitors from as far away as Coffs Harbour to Ballina and beyond, took to the track to show off their skills, as Maclean Dirt Bike Club held Round 2 of its six-round race calendar.

A great day was had by all with the weather holding out and an action-packed day of racing.

Riders as young as four years hit the track to show where future champions come from.

The social class action was a little slower but still proved that age is no barrier, and all classes tore around the track at “break neck” speeds providing adrenaline pumping action.
