Baulkham Hills Junior Motorcycle Club riders brought home a huge haul of medals at the NSW Minikhana 2017 state titles.
Baulkham Hills sports captain Trent McVey said it was a great result with five medallists at the October 21-22 event with the club also winning the season’s regional club title.
“In minikhana, we’re not one of the bigger clubs so it was good to come away with that,” he said.
“It meant we had a lot of our riders placing through the year and I’m very proud of our riders, and a lot of them have come a long way and have developed throughout the year.”
Minikhana focuses on the development of motorcycle riding skills and techniques for junior competitors rather than speed.
Leading the club’s excellent results were Kellyville brothers 85cc C-grade rider Todd McVey, 13, and miniwheel A-grade rider Austin McVey, 11, and 65cc C-grade rider Jack Roberts, 11, from Kenthurst who each claimed wins.
Nathan Pauling, 9, finished second in the 50cc B-grade while Leon Maddy, 13, of Maraylya snatched third in the 85cc A-grade title.
Leon, who has progressed from 85cc C-grade at the beginning of the year, said it was a great result.
“It was really challenging against harder riders,” he said. “It felt really good to come third because of how far I’ve come this year.”
