It's Getting Hot Out There!
This weekend Moree will see an influx of champions, Moree Motorcycle club has come aboard the North Coast Motocross Series for 2015. Cited as arguably the best motocross track in Australia by motocross (MX) riders far and wide, Moree Motorcycle Club is set to host round four of the North Coast Motocross Series on 1st November, this track offers 2.2km of track of jumps, obstacles and table tops which are kept perfectly groomed and prepped by full irrigation.
As the series closes in on the final round, round five in late November, the fourth round is lining up to be a fast, adrenaline packed event. There is no doubt that Local rider Tyler Johnson (#23) who is holding onto first place standing for the C Grade Lites coming into the fourth round of the series will put on a display of incredible talent on his home track to maintain that position and points. Another Moree rider, Neil Loder (#91) has constantly shown age is definitely no barrier as he takes on his fellow riders in the Over 35yrs class to hold onto the first place standing with only 13 points between him and second place rider Glen Haig (#72) from South Grafton, who will be hot on his trail coming into the fourth round. The Ladies All Power class will be one for spectators to watch with only nine points divide first and second place standing, will Ahslea Bates (#55) hold onto first place or will Tenayah McLeod (#251) challenge her to gain the title?
Champions come in all ages, Oliver Paterno (#664) from Hastings Valley, is giving a display of a champion in the 0cc Div2 class, as he takes on the challenge of each new track and round with ease. Oliver has achieved a first place standing, accumulating a nice distance of points between first and second place standing which is held by fellow rider Joel Holbert (#219) also from Hastings Valley.
Showing the spectators a talent to watch is Lachlan Torpy(#281) from Cessnock, who comes into the fourth round sitting in first place standing for the 18-250cc Class, last round saw mechanical issues hinder Lachlan’s heats and this did not deter him as he continued to come in at second place on the day. Hayden Matterson (#291) from Hastings Valley is closing in on the first place standing with only three points between first and second place standing. This will be a race that will keep the spectators on the edge of their seats!
Spectators are in for a treat of spectacular talent and skills as the best of the best senior riders take to the track and challenge each other for the Overall Title of the North Coast Champion for 2015. The point score between first and third place is minimal, and these riders are hungry to claim the title. Currently in first place is Jacob Mcleod (#5) from South Grafton closely followed by Jack Roots(#217) from Maclean then Liam Wilson (#388) from Sunshine Coast QLD.
These riders bring their skills and talents to the series to provide a spectator event not to be missed.
