Ipswich Winter Regional 25.10.15

A big THANK YOU to everyone who contributed/raced/volunteered to help make our Winter Regional race such a success.

Ipswich hosted the first round of BMX East’s 2015/16 Winter Regional Series & Summer Series presentation – Halloween style!

Despite some heavy overnight rain the track held up well & made for some great racing, helped in no small part by some fantastic October weather.

Special thanks goes out to Ipswich Mayor, Glen Chisholm who opened the meeting & even assisted with gate practice!

Every Ipswich rider competing did their club proud, none more so than Aldis Salavejs who stormed to victory in only his second full race here in the 14-16 boys. There was also a great win for Andy Ashford in the Masters class.

Round 2 of the series is on November 22nd at Milton Keynes – In the meantime enjoy some photos from round one.

Track work & Ipswich Winter Regional

Three important dates for your diaries.
The club requires enthusiastic volunteers to prep our Landseer Park track for our forthcoming Winter Regional race.
We hope to put in a few hours shovel work on the Saturdays of October 11th & 24th from 9am. If you can help in any way large or small please pop by. Shovels, rakes & barrows would be especially handy on the day.
Our 2015/16 BMX East Winter Regional is scheduled for Sunday October 25th. Registration closes at 11.30am on the day with classes for all. Pre registration will also be available online on the British Cycling website.
Racing should start around 12.15pm & we hope to have a spooky theme for the meeting as it's so close to Halloween!
The race will also incorporate the EA Summer Series 2015 trophy presentation, giving you even more reason to attend what we hope will be a great days racing.
