Junior Race 1:
Travis, after looking good in practice got off to a good start. Riding well and holding position just outside the top 10. With 2 laps to go, up the face of a jump Travis hits a rut which sends him off the Jump with his bike sideways and hitting the ground hard hurting his shoulder. Travis was ready to remount and finish race but under advice from the paramedics Travis walked off the track to get a proper check over. DNF

Junior Race 2:
Travis, still hurting from the big crash in race 1 lines up for the 2nd race. Not taking too many chances and trying to ride the smooth lines so not to put too much pressure on the injured shoulder Travis had a strong race and would finish 13th.

Junior Race 3:
Travis thinking about points would once more bare the pain and line up for the last race. With the track so rough, his shoulder giving him grief and not wanting to push to another mistake Travis would cruise to an 18th place finish.

Junior Results:
Travis Field 18th

AMX Race 1:
James started the day with a great start putting him right up the front round the first corner. He was running well while sitting in 5th battling with the 4 riders behind him for the whole race. Nearer the end of the race James’s fitness let him down but rather the push himself into a mistake he rode smart and dropped back only a few places to finish 8th. Sean got a bad start but a hard charge through the pack got him up to a 9th place finish.

AMX Race 2:
Sean got off to a mid-pack start in this one, starting moving forward but would finish outside the top 10 taking 13th. James, smashing his starts today was again up the front. By the half-way point James was sitting in a comfortable 4th with 5th a fair distance behind. James held his 4th position all the way to the flag.

AMX Race 3:
James again rocketed out the gate to come round the first corner in 2nd, pushing hard and taking 1st by the 4th corner but a mistake at the end of the first lap would see him fall and remount in last. An awesome charge though meant James would come from dead last to 10th over the line. Sean again with a mid-pack start had a good race with good pace throughout, moving through the pack to cross the line in 8th.

AMX Results:
James Nestor 6th
Sean Bardwell 8th
