Riders tear up track in weekend motorcross madness

THE track at the Mareeba Motorcycle Club was churned raw over the weekend as round 2 of the Tropical North QLD Motorcross Series was hosted with nearly 200 riders and their families making their way out for the event.

Round 1 of the series was held in Charters Towers a few weeks ago and many riders were keen to get on the Mareeba track and showcase their talents. 

Riders were aged from four years old and up competed and whilst many locals attended, many travelled from as far south as Moranbah, west from Mt Isa, north to Weipa and everywhere in between. 

The local club was pleased to receive a lot of help from local businesses who continue to support the club and their events. Mareeba Motorcycle Club president Kim Grothues was excited to host so many riders over the weekend. 

“It was fantastic to see so many people come to support this event both riders and spectators,” he said. “We had over 250 bikes competing and the track held up amazingly. “It is a real credit to everyone involved to make this event happen.” 

Many local club members now lead the points in the Championships for their respective classes and are keen for the next round of racing set in Townsville in three weeks.
