Chappy Pony Express at Moonta Dirt Bike Club

The sixth annual three-hour Chappy Pony Express was contested at Moonta Dirt Bike Club recently.

To speed proceedings, juniors and pee wees were combined. This group rode the usual track, but riders were pushed to their limits as heavy showers persisted during their one and a half hours on the track. Slippery mud clogged up back wheels, but all the kids jumped in and helped each other throughout the event. Sticks and anything else handy were utilised to de-mud the bikes before venturing out again.

These kids showed true determination, grit sportsmanship. Blake Whitbread lost his partner in the early stages but soldiered on to complete 15 laps by himself to win the ironman trophy. Reef Mackereth and Haydon Leicester were pair winners completing 15 laps, second were Bella Osborn and Dale Leicester on 13 laps. Third were Connor Osborn and Bede Mackereth sharing one bike after a break down on 12 laps. Also sharing one bike due to a breakdown, Ethan and Reece Osborn were fourth on 10 laps.
