The forecast rain did not appear and the grass track was in good shape for the day’s racing. A hallmark of this mini-series has been good turnouts and very competitive racing by the local young riders. Yesterday we had 22 riders ranging between 4 and 12 years old, with the youngest still sporting a natty pair of stabilizers. I must say that bike handling skills were very impressive, with not one faller or collision throughout the day. Well done all to all racers and well done to Ray Kelly and Paul Kaffel for coaching the children so well and for making the whole day possible.
We managed to cram 10 races and an “All-Stars” prize presentation into a couple of hours. All the children were fantastic, giving a great show to all the adults who loudly cheered from the “Grandstands”.
Thanks to Vyv Baker and Janice Kelly who ably managed a last minute rush of entries as well as keeping everyone supplied in tea and cake. A special treat for Ray and me was that Rod and Roger Woodford took down the course and packed every thing away whilst we were sorting out the prizes – thank you guys, you’re up for a medal next time! Defo!
