Broadford Southern Classic - Sunday 19th Oct 2008

With 10 bikes on the road, it was a it was a great turnout for the ride to Broadford and the Southern Classic race meeting. I think it was the biggest number of bikes on a ride for quite a while & maybe the 29C on Saturday had everybody feeling recharged. Craig was sure to have a cheer squad when he rolled out on the T-Rex Honda. Riding through Gisbourne felt like we stepped into another season - it was freezing. On the way up there was fog and the temperature dropped a few degress - on the way back it hadn't changed!
The smokers regrouped in Kilmore - strength in numbers!
It was a great day at the racing & aweseome to see a girl (Mandy Beales) win in the 350 solo race - she got a big cheer from the boys and the girls!
Then Craig came out for the first race in the afternoon - all was going well until he was given a penalty for jumping the start - race over! Second time out was a different story & he was flying - great result - came first in his class!
There was a few standing there watching that were itching to get out there on their own bikes. The sidecars racers put on the usual "slide" show - unreal to watch - wouldn't get me on one of those things!
It was a great day out - good to catch up with everyone after a long cold winter.
