Ipswich Winter Regional

Despite the appalling weather in the preceding 24hrs the club were able to keep the track puddle free & allow racing to commence bang on noon today.
A big thanks goes out to all the 86 riders competing, a number we couldn't of dreamed of before the meeting because of the weather.
The sun shone from the first moto though, & although the track was very slippery & a lot of hard work, by the finals it had dried up considerably & made for some rad racing.
The club would like to thank BMX East & it's own volunteers for helping to make the day what it was.
Round three of the series is at Norwich on November 17th... See you there!

Summer Series Presentation/Parents Race

Parents race

 
 
 
 
 
 
  
 
The Club made its presentation of the 2013 Go Ride/Summer Series awards last night.
It was fantastic to see so many riders at the track, & thanks to British Cycling awards were given to the top 5 riders in each class. For a list of rider rankings please click here.
An end of series parents race was run too. Everyone made it round the track in one piece, & few wheels even left the ground. Mark Dorrell took the win ahead of a hard charging Brian Taylor in second. Euan Goodman couldn’t quite emulate his glory days of racing but did manage to snag third ahead of a handicapped Lee Matthews.  Paula Gladwell took a moral victory by being the first (& only) lady across the line.

Parents race
1  Mark Dorel
2  Brian Taylor
3  Euan Goodman
4  Lee Matthews
5  Aiden Milner-Moore
6  Jonathan Hambling
7  Paula Gladwell

Thanks again to all riders & parents who helped to make the series a great success, hopefully we can make 2014 even better still.

Don’t forget this Sunday’s final regional race at Ipswich. Registration closes at 11.30. Get to Landseer Park early to grab some practice & sample the atmosphere.

The club will be at the track on Saturday morning (0900-noon) to carry out final preparations. Keen volunteers will be more than welcomed as we look to roll, sweep & de-weed the surface.
