Mo­tocross for young­sters

North Coast Times - - SPORT -

KIDS and teens can have a go on two or four wheels at the Wan­neroo Ju­nior Mo­tocross Club this month.

Mo­tor­cy­cling WA is sup­ply­ing free one-day li­cences for young­sters aged four to 19 who have not re­ceived one be­fore for the club’s come-and-try day on Fe­bru­ary 18.

If rid­ers have re­ceived a li­cence be­fore, they can buy a $30 one-event rec li­cence.

The event aims to al­low ju­niors to try mo­tocross in a safe en­vi­ron­ment, with kids placed into age and bike size groups.

“They usu­ally get four races, which go for about 10 min­utes each and the other time they watch the other rid­ers and get their bikes ready for the next race,” sec­re­tary Kelly Squires said.

The club will then host a Go Moto day on Fe­bru­ary 25 where club mem­bers can also take part.

Both events are open to rid­ers who turned four be­fore Jan­uary 1 or were 18 or un­der on Jan­uary 1 and cost $20 each.

Non-com­pet­i­tive rid­ers for the Go Moto must hold a mini or rec li­cence or can again buy a one-event li­cence.

All rid­ers must wear cor­rect mo­tocross boots and ap­proved hel­met, chest guard, gloves and gog­gles and have a par­ent or guardian present at all times.

For more in­for­ma­tion, con­tact race sec­re­tary Ni­cole Martin on 0417 947 137 or ni­cole.mar­tin4@big­pond.com.
