ATVWA Social & Racing Club Pony Express
4TEEN Industries riders Luke Gaisford & Luke Capogreco decided to get out of their Motocross
comfort zone and mix it up with the Enduro riders at Woodridge North of Perth. The event was well attended with 70 + riders, each lap approximately 18kms looped through the 100+ acre Woodridge ATV Park. Luke & Luke entered Division 1 and Gaisford took on the start endeavouring to get the fastest laptime, successfully just beating the fastest 2 wheel Ironman rider. Switching riders each lap, Capogreco's bike had a minor problem and had to be retired, so the mighty Honda was used for the duration. Over 10 laps the finish was separated by only minutes with most riders finishing happy and content racing on a beautiful warm winters day.
Luke and Luke thanked the ATV Club and their fantastic committee for all their hard work putting on a great event. They also thanked their sponsors for helping with bike prep to get them on the start line. Rockingham Signwriters Hardiman ATV, Lonestar Racing, Fox Shox, Oxy Fresh Oxygenated Water
NV Engineering, Immortal ATV, Mumfords customs.
They also thanked Mark & Fiona Balshaw, David Norman, Kaiti & Celeste for timing and help in the pit change overs.
Junior Rider Adam Filbey and partner Blake Croonen won the 200/300cc class
Colin Balshaw entered the Ironman Quad Class but unfortunatel suffered a DNF
Zac Croonen and Ashley Mills 2nd in the Div 1 Quad Teams
WAMX MX Championships
Lightweight Motorcycle Club
State Round 4
After a good result in Round 3 and sitting 3rd over All in the points, we moved on to round 4 at Lightweight Motorcycle Club.
There was alot of rain during the week, we looked to be in for a wet and muddy day.
Had a good start in the first race and ended up in 5th place, there was much room for improvement in the next two races. Race 2 had another good start sitting in 4th place, after the 3rd lap started experiencing an electrical problem, the bike wasn't running the best and being close in the points for 3rd, a DNF wasn't what we needed, I managed to keep the bike going and managed to finnish 8th
Race 3 we thought we had the problem solved, I got another good start but again suffered electrical problems and finished 7th with an overall result of 7th for the day.
I'm now sitting 10 points away from 3rd in the overall points standing, there's a little catching up to do and some hard days training to come, we now focus towards a good home track round 5 at Bunbury.
Huge thanks to .

Luke Gaisford decided to dust off his boots and Bike and compete in the Tumbulgum Natural Terrain Motocross event.
A Favourite amongst Western Australians from Pro's to Novice there is a class for all to compete in and a track that challenges and delights most riders.
Luke was advised to go have fun, he had no expectations after not racing since Summercross,
but still when the gate drops, Race face is on and Holeshot is the focus. Luke took the first holeshot with Anthony Pearce right on his back wheels, they raced like this the whole race, Anthony just not able to make the move for Luke to take the win. Race 2 was much the same with Bosnakis taking the holeshot and Luke and Anthony fighting for 2nd and 3rd, Anthony tried everything to make the pass but just couldnt get passed.
Race 3 Luke took the holeshot with Bosnakis in behind him, Chris making a Ballzy pass on Luke that impressed all , Luke taking 2nd and Anthony 3rd
Race 4 saw Anthony Take the holeshot with Bosnakis and Luke close in behind, Luke made the pass on Bosnakis and chased down Pearce for the shortened moto of 3 laps, racing side by side through the jumps and rollers, Luke tried everything to make the pass, but this time it was Anthony for the Win, with Luke 2nd and Matt Mckay 3rd
Overall Luke Gaisford 1st, Chris Bosnakis in 2nd and Anthony Pearce in 3rd.
Tumbulgum always displays competitive quad racing as the track really seams to suit Quads and this year was trully special.
