Rid­ers burn track

The Riverine Herald - - GAMES ON SUMMER -

AMIDST the threat of sear­ing sun and tor­ren­tial rain, Echuca-Moama ex­pe­ri­enced all four sea­sons in one day on Satur­day.

All this just as the 2019 Echuca Moama Ju­nior Track Car­ni­val was try­ing to get un­der way.

For­tu­nately for the more than 100 rid­ers from around the state, af­ter a short break due to rain, rac­ing was al­lowed to re­sume.

Tal­ented young­sters gath­ered at the Moama Velo­drome, com­ing from as far afield as Brunswick in Mel­bourne — with some as­tound­ing re­sults recorded on the day.

Echuca Moama Cy­cling Club pres­i­dent Ray Hamil­ton said with 52 events held on the day, it was more like con­trolled chaos than any­thing else.

But with a bit of help from the weather, all races went smoothly — much to the en­joy­ment of those on and off the track.

PUTTING ON A SHOW: Rid­ers round the bend.

PACK MEN­TAL­ITY: Com­peti­tors pace them­selves.
