Good turnout for summer racing

A good turnout of well over 40 riders marked the start of summer racing at Gisborne BMX Club’s track on Tuesday.

For 14 members it was a last hit-out before they attended the North Island champs at Auckland’s Mountain Raiders track.

Striders

Jax Nepia, George Donaldson and Cameron Wallis had five good, close motos.

Damien Smith, Pippa Spence, Jack Murphy, Mason Rennie, Scott Pheasant and Stan Donaldson — now racing a half track — also had five good motos.

Six and seven years

Anna Spence had too much speed for this group but William Johnston Priest did his best to grab a couple of wins. Jakob Rennie ,Blake Carpendale, Maz Trutt, Frank Donaldson, Stephen Bennett and Liam Nicol battled well, with plenty of passing and good racing.

Eight and nine years

Reave Nepia-Anderson had a clean sheet of wins but was chased hard by Walker Wallis and Brad O’Connell-Bacon. These three had some very close racing, which was good for Reave and Brad as they prepared for the North Island champs. Oliver Pheasant had his best night for a while, and was often close to the top three. Lucas Leif Nicol and Ada Lasenby rounded out the group.

Ten and 11 years

Ashar McKnight and Kyran Lasenby tied for first place. Cory Carpendale was a close third in some very tight racing.

Twelve and 13 years

Ruby-Anne Smith had four wins from five races, Brendan Bell winning the other moto. Kaitlyn Priest was a close third.

Sixteen-plus

Dylan Lardelli topped the night in this 10-strong group, with four wins. In close racing, JT Nepia, Scott Taylor and Joshua Lardelli were always in contention. James Chatfield was the best of the rest, while Phill Gill, Jason Lasenby, Tim Smith, Chris Fox and Kyrstal Smith raced hard.

Thirty-plus masters

David Bacon took the round win with Sherilyn Anderson, Guy Spence and Kyla Newton all looking fast.

The next club night is on Tuesday, with sign-in from 5.30pm. Updates can be checked on the Gisborne Bmx Facebook page.

    Do you support the call for a feasibility study into developing an "inland port" and sending the district's export logs to Napier Port by rail, to get log trucks out of the city and to repurpose the port and harbour area?
