It’s been a while since the last update, so here’s the latest…

Rd 3 and 4 and State Champs have been and gone and we’ve had some great results and some bad luck…

Rd 3 Mount Buller
Joel had a cruisy qualifier seeding in 4th and Liam 6th, come race time Joel finished in with a 4th Liam turned the heat on and took the win! The bike worked great all weekend with no problems.

Rd 4 Mount Baw Baw
Round 4 brought the boys back to Baw Baw again…The weekend started off well but Joel had a very hard pedal hit which caused an issue with the gearbox, unfortunately he had ride another bike for the rest of the weekend. This affected his race run and he finished in 6th place, Liam qualified in 12th and stepped it up in the final to finish in 3rd. Despite the problems of the weekend we managed to get another podium.

State Champs – Mount Beauty Short Course
Last weekend the State Series came to Mount Beauty and gave the boys a weekend off from travelling to the race. The finish line being 30 seconds from Liams door and a minute to Joels! 

As always at Mount Beauty a great weekend was had by the majority of racers. Joel and Liam enjoyed practice. Joel qualified 2nd with 2:54.5 and Liam 3rd 2:57.6. Come race time Liam worked it!!! took the win and the State Champ title. Joel finished with a very respectable 3rd to finish up a great weekend of racing.
