5 Te Awamutu - BACK IN THE DAY BMX
Round 5 was held on Sunday 18th Jan on Day 2 of the Te Awamutu Grand Prix meeting. We had a record 23 riders this time (yes that is only 2 riders short of having our 1st ever semi-final and no I won’t mention names of those who didn’t ride) so that gave us 2 gates of 8 and one of 7 which meant tough work to make the final and this showed by 4 riders finishing the day on 5th=. This also meant that series points were hard to get so everything that was on offer was taken gratefully. Even though racing was close we only saw a couple of minor crashes which was good to see considering how tight that 1st corner is !! I would like to thank the Te Awamutu club for hosting this round. It was great to have a round on a Pro-Gate to see how fast the lads can get out once the gate is gone. Congratulations to the 3 who made up the podium, Ritchie McLachlan 1st, Craig Hutchinson 2nd and Boyd Nelson 3rd. We also had another consolation final with Jason Powrie taking home the $20 this week, well done. We have now had 36 different riders take part in the series with eight “newbies” at this round including 3 ladies which was awesome to see. We’ve had another shuffle around inside the top 8 after this round with a couple of riders dropping down due to the fact that they weren’t present (shows how important it is to not miss a round).
We now have another good break (6 weeks) before the next round which is on 1st March at TeKuiti and this round is the last before the Nationals so it will be the last chance to see if you’ve got the hang of this fast pace and go into the Nationals on fire and ready to qualify for Adelaide. So see you then or for those going to Kapiti see you there with your Old School 20’s ready for some fun.
