Mud, sweat and gears in dirt club’s final round

MACLEAN Dirt Bike Club rounded out its 2013 season with its sixth and final round on Sunday.

Sixty riders aged five to 55 from throughout the region raced across 11 divisions.

While day winners were decided in each category, the announcement of the overall series winners has been put on ice until the presentation night in Yamba on November 30.

"We had some very close racing between riders in some divisions," Maclean Dirt Bike Club publicity officer Adrian Nelson said.

"In the overall standings there were just a couple of points separating riders in some divisions.

"It's been a successful year. Started off a bit wet but finished strong.

"Everyone enjoyed themselves and we're looking forward to another successful season next year."

Grafton's Sam Mason tore up the Maclean circuit to win both the Senior Lites and the Open All Powers divisions.

Lismore's Connor McNamara also had a good day on the bike as he claimed both the 65cc 10 to under-13 years and 85cc 9 to under-12 years.

In the Junior Lites it was Grafton's Joel Adamson finishing on top while Maclean's Jack Roots dominated on his home track to win the Senior Opens and Graeme Scarr won the over-35s.

Riders came from near and far and venturing down from the Gold Coast was Dominic Soich. He took home the spoils in the 65cc 7 to under-10s division.

Coffs Harbour's Slade Hallgath took out division two and Lismore's Brody Roberson won the 85cc 12 to under-16s.

Maclean Dirt Bike Club goes into a hiatus from competitive racing until February 16. Then it will kickstart the year for the region with Motocross Madness which offers prizemoney to the senior events and is open to all ages, attracting riders from Queensland down to Sydney and out to Inverell.
