Mr Dittmer had obviously been busy at work on this one with the big yellow bulldozer far from hiding the fact. Great mounds of dirt sticking up from the ground forming a multitude of jumps and berms, even a sawdust section held a woody spot out the back.
Ray and Yvette were also the driving force behind getting a bunch of young performers together for a big afternoon with Broxy. His son Kane was already flying over a smaller version of the Mind the Gap big double and local lad Geordie Murdoch wasn’t backing off at all on his CRF230F so the coaching started right off at the goods- opening up the corners and relaxing through the bumps. Jordan Hatch definitely found himself thrown in the deep end but kept his head and did a great job at surviving while learning a thing or two before his little sister got some coaching with Broxy all to herself after the boys had had their fun.
With a few sausies on the barbie and a pit tent to keep us cool thanks to the Murdoch family, you can’t go wrong.
Charlie Brown was our host for the evening with the girls staying behind to enjoy the countryside while Pete hit Manuka Park with the Cosford boys who started hitting the fast sweeper with aggression, looking all the business.
A small group of keen 250 riders were also on the books with Emily Toohey, Andrew Casey, Hayden Sherman and Dylan Hollenback. The highlight was how hard Dylan was laying into the ruts and berms but unfortunately he also held the booby prize of having a big off. We are hoping he can get right back to that form again without locking up the rear wheel on an upramp next time!
