MO­TOCROSS: Emer­ald’s Mozzie Creek mo­tocross track saw crack­ing rac­ing for round two of the Cen­tral High­lands In­ter­club series.

Emer­ald Mo­tocross me­dia of­fi­cer Sharon Pease said the se­nior classes were hotly con­tested, with Scotty Ste­wart in his usual blistering form.

“It was also great to see Lind­say Dil­lon back on the bike af­ter some time off with in­jury,” she said.

“Ash­leigh Thompson was our in-form fe­male rider tak­ing out the ladies’ class, with Dy­lan Gook, Mitch Alexan­der, Jay­den Beradi and Matthew Flohr also pro­vid­ing some very en­ter­tain­ing mo­ments to win their re­spec­tive classes.”

Ju­nior rid­ers, in­clud­ing Matty Spence, pro­vided great en­ter­tain­ment for on­look­ers, with Benny Pease again tak­ing out the Ju­nior Lites and 85 Se­nior class to ex­tend his series lead.

In 85 Ju­nior and 65 Se­nior, Elias Cooper’s rid­ing could not be faulted to take out both classes.

Pease said the Queensland No.1 in the 50cc class showed his skill.

“Cooper Down­ing of Mid­dle­mount once again showed why he has the ti­tle by dom­i­nat­ing both the 50cc and 65cc Ju­nior classes,” she said.

“It was great to see the im­prove­ment in so many of our lo­cal rid­ers and we are look­ing for­ward to the third and fi­nal round of the series, which will be held in Dysart on Oc­to­ber 6.”

Emer­ald mo­tocross will hold their fi­nal club day for the year fol­low­ing the fi­nal round in Oc­to­ber, with end-of-year pre­sen­ta­tions that night to see the club’s top rid­ers for 2018 crowned.

“It has been a very ex­cit­ing year for the club, be­ing able to hold a Cen­tral High­lands event, Cen­tral Queensland event and a Queensland ti­tle,” Pease said.

“The fu­ture of the club is look­ing very ex­cit­ing and we are look­ing for­ward to see­ing what 2019 brings.”
