Challenge builds at BMX track



HARBOUR City BMX Club vol- unteers began preparing for an exciting year ahead when recon- figuration work on the club's Sun Valley track got under way on Sunday.

Club spokeswoman Suzanne Ward said earthmoving equip- ment began reshaping the track into a more challenging layout which will be used when hosting the Queensland Country Titles on June 25-26.

'The track will now be more attractive to big name riders, a lot of who will be coming from interstate,' Ward said.

Ward said the new track lay- out will incorporate a 'split' straight, which consisted of two parallel sections, commonly re- ferred to as a 'high road'' and a 'low road' and regularly fea- tured at world titles compe- tition.

The high road, a more chal- lenging section, will be used for senior competition while the low road will cater for younger rid- ers, both sections linking to the same track which will otherwise be the same for competitors of all ages.

The club will also stage its an- nual March Madness and Moth- er of All Motos events on March 5 and June 18-19 respectively.

Weather permitting, the club will host a working bee on Satur-day and Sunday beginning at 8am on both days, to continue the reconfiguration work and all members are requested to help.

Club competition begins on February 5 with registrations taken at 4pm and racing to start at 5pm.

A 'come and try day' will be staged on February 13 and every- one is welcome. For more information phone Suzanne Ward 4978 1996.
