Talk about praying for rain, the two Tokoroa camps were in serious jeopardy until we got gifted a beauty. With rain coming just in time to keep the talcum powder at bay there was no need to change venues to our back up track in Tauranga. Not only that but for some reason Tokoroa got much less rain than most other places meaning it wasn’t too wet… what can we say except prayers answered!
Less riders at the first camp made it harder for everyone to find a buddy to team up with while the second camp was all good and by Tuesday arvo the track could not have been better. Solid berms, smooth track and jumps- despite being completely stuffed no one wanted to stop!
The man himself
We had Nick Franklin show up at the track and show he still has the speed for motocross then demonstrate how its done on the pit bike into the foam including a 360 attempt off the super kicker, thankfully the bikes bogging wasn’t any worse!
Broxy kept it more simple with straight flips off the super kicker and 75 foot ramps but the most fun was had with a bunch of riders using Nicks pit bike to have their own go, the youngest being barely 8 years old!
The next camp will be more set up for Junior Nationals so look out for that to fill up quick…
