Motorcross club returns to track
Motocross track back to its best
MOTOCROSS: The Central Burnett Motorcycle Club is back in action after a month of heavy rain caused significant damage to the track.
Club president Wayne Sparrow said riders would not recognise the track from the condition it was in more than a month ago.
“We had remnants of Cyclone Debbie come through. It caused a bit of damage to the track but we were fortunate to get a disaster recovery grant,” Sparrow said.
“So the boys have come in and fixed the track up, fixed the irrigation system, repaired all the damage from that and then we’ve held this practice day.
“As you can see, the track has come up beautifully. It doesn’t get any better than this.”
Sparrow said the Mundubbera course had many obstacles to challenge riders.
“Mundubbera’s typically rated as one of the highest for the natural terrain track. You may have noticed tracks coming in from the gully, obviously following the natural terrain and the contour land for the track,” Sparrow said.
“It creates excellent riding. It’s got some fast speed sections and some slower sections, typically a very fast track this one, and it’s enjoyable.
“It’s for all levels. You will notice we have four-yearolds and then we have riders who are in their 60s, so we’ve got all ages and everything in between.
“Some studies suggest it is the second most physical sport in the world. It’s very muscular and cardio – it works every muscle in the body.”
Several events are coming up for motocross riders.
The Cameron McFarlane coaching course is on June 24 and August 12 is the Woman on Wheels competition, which kicks off from 2pm.
