here is few images and a little something from Mum Bec,
Well the weekend just past had us travelling to the far south of Victoria to Hedley. Rounds 7&8 of the Australian Offroad Championship were run and won and Josh and Mitch had a cracking weekend in the toughest of conditions.
Wild weather and previous rain had the tracks looking like a mud pit but the Corner Inlet MCC had managed to put together some great tracks to ensure the weekend would proceed.
With a 10 week break from the last rounds, both boys had been training hard on and off the bike to make sure they turned up ready to tackle the last 3 weekends of racing over the next 2 months to decide the championship winners.
Josh turned up to the weekend to try and take off out front where he started at the first rounds when he broke his wrist. He is finally 100% fit and proved dominant not just in the J3 class for both days but also winning the No 1 spot overall of all juniors both days. Unfortunately his championship points tally starts from zero after the first 6 rounds but is already up to 6th in the points count after the weekend and is hopeful of as many round wins as possible for the rest of the year.
Mitch has been training on and off the bike so he could try and close the gap between first and him in the J3 championship. With only Josh in front of him for the weekend. Mitch managed a second place finish in Saturdays 2 hour Xcountry and again in the Sunday sprints in J3 class. He also took 2nd junior ourtright Saturday and 3rd Sunday which was a fantastic effort and great reward for all his efforts. He now has a great lead in the championship points and is keen to keep it that way.
Both boys have been gaining valuable knowledge and skills from doing some training with Off road ace Jarrod Bewley over the year and are hoping to continue to improve for the remainder of the year and into their final junior year in 2017.

None of the boys success would be possible without the great support of so many great businesses, Family and friends. We thank you all for your help and support and look forward to the next rounds of the Australian and NSW Off Road Championships in Dungog, NSW in 3 weeks.
