Round 5 South Australian round, Its hosted at bennets. All started with showers on Friday night and light showers Saturday morning as we all proposed a wet weekend with more fun being had in the car park than on the track, however, the wind came and the sun slowly dried the mud as cars were parked strategically for a wet exit that didn’t eventuate. With gusty breezes and no more rain, a great weekend was ahead.ILMTB Round 5, Bennets

Saturday Practice:
Practice on Saturday did see a few spills, a few injuries side lined some who may in fact be out for a few months but beside that it started off slow and cold with a breeze coming and going. The riding was slow at the start was not much fun for me to film. Once it hit early afternoon more riders started to turn up and the sun finally came through the clouds with a warm afternoon ahead. With some solied riding.

Sunday Race day:
Well was a cold morning but no rain overnight leaving the track still in tact. Every one rocked up on 8:30 as planed, people punched some runs out before the race just to get warmed up. At 11:30 match briefing was called and then the race was underway. With novice coming down first and so on and so fourth and pumped the riders through every 30 seconds, this kept the spectators interest high all day . When the elites went down for there final run it was nice sunny and dry for them with them posting up some good times with Craig Yates taking out first with 2.17.13 the followed by Todd Folland with 2.21.57 then closely followed by Jack Harbison with 2.22.78.
in the end was a good day for riding and filming heres my little vid summing up the day.
