A good day of racing today in Round 3 of the BYJL Nationals at East Park. Thankfully the weather was kind and the track held up well.
The day started well for Connor Steele in the opening event for the U8`s. One dropped point saw him take 15 out of 16 points into another A Final. A Grid one draw was all he needed to take a tapes to flag win under huge pressure throughout. The win takes Connor from 4th into 2nd overall with 1 round remaining – a rostrum place now the aim.
Marc Phipps and Ryan Winwood had a tough Group of riders in the U12`s. Both battled hard for points but feel short of final places. Marc scored 8 and Ryan 6.
Emily Pitt made a strong start in the Girls Youth meeting. 2 2nd places was followed by a battling 3rd and a gate 4 4th place in the heats. She deservedly made the B Final on 9 points but another gate 4 saw he finish in 4th place.
Well done to all at East Park for putting on a professional day of racing.
