Trail riders to send the dust flying
THE DUST will be flying when the Curtis Coast Trail Riders Club hosts round three of the Central Queensland Pony Express Series on Sunday.
A new track is certain to test the region's best riders with some close racing expected.
Curtis Coast's best chance of some success is in the junior ranks where Matt Guse, Mitchell Craig and Ben Wenham will lead the charge.
All three have been in good form recently and their local knowledge is set to be important on the testing track.
Curtis Coast club secretary Mark Ruthenberg believes it will be a brilliant day of racing.
'It should be a magic day, we are all looking forward to it and the racing will certainly be excit- ing,' Ruthenberg said.
Meanwhile in the senior ranks, a couple of likely hopes of doing well are experienced campaigners Dean McCarthy and Steven Parkes.
Over 130 competitors (junior and senior) are believed to be heading to Mount Larcom to take part in this round of the action- packed series.
Senior action starts at 9am sharp and will finish at 2pm, while the juniors blast off at 9.30am and finish at 1.30pm.
For spectators, the round is fully catered and has a bar facility operating.
The best way to get to the track is by following the signs from Mount Larcom.
