Un­reg­is­tered club rid­ers make most of champs

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By EMMA DAWE

More than 130 rid­ers com­peted in the Cen­tral Otago Mo­tocross Cham­pi­onships in Cromwell on Sun­day. The event was hosted by the Cen­tral Otago Mo­tor­cy­cle Club and club pres­i­dent Ivan Tay­lor said he was de­lighted by how the day went. Rid­ers came from as far afield as Christchurch and In­ver­cargill to com­pete, with be­tween 15 and 20 rid­ers rac­ing in each event, he said. This year the club in­tro­duced the club­man’s class, which al­lowed rid­ers who weren’t reg­is­tered to a club to com­pete, and that proved to be hugely pop­u­lar. ‘‘We had more rid­ers tak­ing part in the club­man’s class than we ex­pected, so that was great,’’ Mr Tay­lor said. It was hoped some of those rid­ers would go on to join the club. Next month the club will host round three of the KTM South Is­land cross-coun­try event which will be held at Tar­ras.
