The JUMPCLUB tribe (in association with Bexhill Burners) has had a ball hitting the Hersden series in Kent this Summer. More than a dozen brand new riders from the Saturday JUMPCLUB sessions have raced for the first time. We’ve had proud parents, broken bones, some character building and a whole bunch of fun. Getting whooped on a 16” skate park bikes has never been so much fun.
The final race of the Summer series is this weekend (6th Sept). Plus our friends at Hersden have another race, the Kent Open Individual Champs lined up for Sunday 4th October, along with the presentation for the 2015 Summer series on the same day.
Here’s a few extra words from the infamous Tony Knot, our man at Hersden.. ‘After racing next Sunday the final points standings will not appear anywhere until the presentation after racing on 4th October. Next Sunday the track will open at 10, with registration closing at 12.30pm. Race entry fees will be £7 over 16s, £5 for under 16s, £2 car parking.
Also from our next raceday on 6 September, riders can vote for their Rider of the Year. All riders who have done three rounds can vote and be voted for, the full list of qualified riders will be on the board room 10am on that day, riders can also vote by pm to Tony Knott before 4 October. The Rider of the Year trophies (the other trophy winner decided by the committee) carry special significance as they will be awarded in memory of Nicola Sterling, who we sadly lost earlier this year. See you there….TK’
The list of qualified riders eligible to vote and be voted for is on the Hersden facebook site (riders cannot vote for themselves and each rider gets 3 votes).
Racers from JUMPCLUB listed are:
Zachary ‘Speedball’ Tier
Ted Latham Martin
Joe ‘Pro’ Smith
Max ‘Power’ Winchester
Douglas ‘Amtrak’ Lockyer.
