CHIN­CHILLA MO­TOCROSS CLUB

Chinchilla News - - FRONT PAGE -

IT was a great day to be on a bike as the Bri­ga­low Re­cre­ation Grounds saw mo­tocross rid­ers ca­reen around the track at break-neck speed.

The Chin­chilla Mo­tocross Club en­joyed the chance to put their talent against the best in the re­gion, with lo­cal names dom­i­nat­ing.

The day ran smoothly de­spite a shoul­der in­jury and a few stacks in the later races.

There were vis­i­tors from Roma and Toowoomba among the rid­ers on the day, look­ing to earn them­selves a tro­phy and im­prove their rank­ing.

Though most of the bikes on the track ranged $7000–$12,000 each, it cost the rid­ers less than $15 in fuel on the day, mak­ing mo­tocross a great long-term in­vest­ment.
