BMX Race - Velokhaya 18 November 2017

21 Nov 2017

Race Report by: Darryn Stow, BMX Coach.

 

The second BMX Race of the season took place at The Velokhaya BMX Track this past Saturday.

After a succesful first race at the Songo.info track last month, the kids were excited to visit Velokhaya and race at a different track.

The weather was once again perfect and we had close to 50 riders ready for action. We started off with Time-Trials for the older riders. Each rider had one chance to get timed around the track to see who can set the fastest time. Wanga Moshani from Velokhaya set the fastest lap of the day with Liam Trustler from Knysna just behind him.

After a short break, it was time to get into the serious racing. We were once again treated to some very close racing. Melanie from Songo.info had a great day out and won the girls class. The Under 12 final race was one of the best races of the day. Lakhanya from Songo.info managed to win it on the line from Luthando. Milani from Velokhaya won the under 10 boys final and Wanga from Velokhaya was once again the fastest in the Open category.

Great sportsmanship was shown by all the riders and we fortunately had no major injuries dispite some huge crashes.

Thanks to Velokhaya for hosting the race and we look forward to the next event on the 1st of December at the Songo.info BMX Track.
