Battle of the Clubs 2016

Battle of The Clubs 2016

We arrived at the track on Saturday and the track was looking great after days of rain in Taupo. We were hoping that the rain would hold off but it turned up at about lunch time along with the southerly. So it presented us with a tough, wet, and cold Taupo track.

Our team for 2016 was Kieran Scheele, Johnny Edwards, Matt Crother’s , Ollie Mackie, Bailey King and Jacob Beal who all put in very solid rides, with no DNF’s to get us our 14th placing overall. All the riders put in a great effort with a great attitude and wore our HBMCC shirts with pride. It was great to see and talk to our HBMCC supporters who turned out to support our riders.

To all that helped well done and Thank You.

Cheers, Hamish (Club team captain)
