They are still coming through but lets just say it's the biggest VMX race event numbers wise this year....there will be some great racing, on and off the track. To all you guy's thinking about it, just do it or at least come and watch then kick yourselves for not entering. See you all there.

John many riders do not like the fact that they will be away from their homes all weekend splashed across social media. Less honest people than we VMX racers can read social media just as well as us. When you arrive and sign on there will be a full program including riders etc.

John, If we let you know too early we have Dungey, Tomac, Reed, Herlings and Carioli all riding for The Premier State you mightn't come. Ha

John, I put full results up ASAP. Still recovering!! and sorting through the MA reports etc. Fortunately no serious injuries this year.

Thanks heaps for your help on Sunday on the start grid. I think we just about exhausted the number of gate resets we had in us. It seemed to get heavier as the day went on  ???.

The overall team result is based on the number of class 'team' wins. This year there were representative teams from each state in Pre75, Pre78, Pre82, Pre85, Pre90, Pre95, Open, 35+, 45+, 55+, P75/78/82 125cc & Pre85/90/95 125cc.
The results of that were
Qld 5
Vic 4
NSW 3

The scores were very close as you can see but it must be said that Queensland put in a dominate performance and were strong in every class and were the better team on the weekend.

If we had included the after party performance :o WELL then Victoria certainly would have taken the prized lump of good OZ timber south ;D ;D 8). Carl's outfit alone almost took your eye out :P

l have to say, that was one of the best motorcycle events l have ever been to, yes the track was too 'modern', it not suiting older bikes or bodies, hence some older gents opting not to ride, me included (my sprained wrist & cramping issues making it too dangerous to continue to ride).

And yes there was the issues of the water-pump breaking-down but you guys sourced the water tanker super fast, well done.

Everyone, from the officials to the canteen staff were super-helpful & friendly, care & thought was given to every rider, if someone's bike would not start at the start-gate, everyone waited and/or helped to get them out on track.

We camped next to some awesome guys (and they were nsw guys!) in the paddock that made it such a pleasure; Chappy & Ken (PCRA, Dickens Racing).

Tell all your friends to put this meeting on your calendar for next year, it is an awesome old-school, fun event that is not to be missed.

Look-out next year, all the Vic's will be back next year with an even stronger contingent!!!!!
