I hope everyone is super excited about this
weekend with just one more day until the Syringa VMX Scramble. The response of
entries and interest from the public has been overwhelming and this is set to be
an unforgettable event for both rider and spectator. We have over 50 individual
entrants with many riding multiple classes so we can expect to see over 70
vintage dirt bikes at this race making it the biggest VMX event to date. The
increased interest and numbers are great but also means that there is going to
be added pressure on the staff manning the day to keep things running smoothly.
That at the end of the day is really up to the riders so please help us by
doing a few basic things like:
- Know the
when and what classes you are racing. Listen to the announcements.
- Be ready
in the pre-race paddock 5 minutes before your race time. If you are racing
back-to-back classes there is 5 minutes between races which should give
you time to change.
