More than 360 bikes – plus riders, supporters, crew and spectators – made last weekend’s Sunshine State MX round in Kingaroy a roaring success.
The Sunshine State competition is a five-round series.
Round 1 was successfully completed in February at Coolum before the pandemic hit, but Round 2 – planned for Kingaroy for March – was delayed for months.
The SBJMX Club hosted the two days of racing at their course on Edenvale South Road.
Club president Brent Perrett said the weekend had gone really well.
Organisers had COVID-safe plans in place which meant a lot of extra cleaning duties for all the volunteers.
Three times Australian MX champion Dean Ferris demonstrated his class, taking out the Pro / Expert Open on Sunday.
Brent said several local club members also shone over the weekend, including Nick Kefford, Joshua Searle and Nate Perrett.
Kingaroy pro-rider Joel Evans also rode well on Sunday.
Riders ranged in age from six to veterans.
This is the first time the Sunshine State series has raced in Kingaroy since the SBJMX Club opened its new track last year.
