Local trail riders excel in Pony Express



IT WAS a good weekend for the Central Coast trail riders at the recent third round of the Central Queensland Pony Express at Mount Larcom.

Rising strs Ben D'Arcy and Hayden Armstrong teamed up to finish first in the Pro Class event. D'Arcy and Armstrong were in red-hot form and it was really no surprise they also took out the day's outright title.

Fellow local Mitchell Craig was another to shine, partnering Rockhampton's Trent Mayall to win the keenly-contested Open Junior division.

Mathew Guse and Ben Gurich ensured the locals had another reason to smile finishing third in the same division.

Meanwhile, Sam Wenham and Mick Lewis rounded out the weekend finishing second in the 85cc junior class.

Curtis Coast club secretary Mark Ruthenberg said the club were pleased with how their members performed.

'The club did very well, it was good for a couple of the younger boys to shine on the weekend,' Ruthenberg said.

'In all 128 riders from as far away as Mackay, Rockhampton and Bundaberg took part in the event.

The Curtis Coast Trail Riders club would like to thank Ross and Lisa Cullen for allowing the club to use their property for the event.
