Battle in the Dirt – There is something for everyone

Posted:

The battle for motorcycling supremacy across the south of NSW is about to fire up and will continue on through to September.

Seven motorcycle clubs will stage meetings across three disciplines of racing, while riders from other clubs will also be involved.

The Riverina Interclub Challenge came in to being with clubs wanting to establish a competition in between the level of club days and racing in competition which is open to all-comers.

The Challenge provides riders with the opportunity to compete at tracks other than their home track, but without travelling vast distances.

There is no doubting the intensity of the racing in all disciplines, and there is something for riders at all levels of competency.

From top-flight riders to those who may be new to the sport, from the youngest juniors to the sports‰Ûª elders, from the latest in machinery to the classic machinery that has been in the shed for years, the Challenge caters for all.

Competition across all disciplines is controlled by the use of transponders fitted to machines and all riders can check their results and standings on the website www.mylaps.com.au

Perhaps the most appealing aspect of the Challenge is the great camaraderie always evident among participants with invariably all members of a family getting involved in same way.

There are three separate competitions - the Golden Wheels dirt track, the Wanabrook motocross and the Leaping Log enduro.

Some clubs can cater for all three disciplines on their own track complex, as well as being able to access larger tracts of lands on which to stage enduro competition.

The Albury-Wodonga club joins the Challenge this year and can host both dirt track and motocross racing at their Lincoln Causeway complex, as well as organizing a round of the enduro series.

The Leeton club is another to host all three competitions this year, with their dirt track round being a first for the club.

Even where clubs will not be hosting a round of any of the three series there will invariably be riders from many clubs in the southern part of the state, and maybe even further afield, taking part.

First up the Golden Wheels dirt track series will get underway at the Wagga club‰Ûªs Yarragundry Park complex this Sunday (April 10). The rest of the five-round series will see meetings at Temora, the Albury-Wodonga track, then back at Wagga Wagga and finally at Leeton.
