Trophy retained on slippery track
Nelson have retained the State of Origin Trophy after the Top of the South VMX club held their annual meeting at Tadmor on Sunday.
Passing showers in the morning produced a slippery track for the first round of racing, but it dried after the lunch break for some fast racing in all classes.
Nelson retained the trophy, with Otago second and Canterbury third.
Racing was contested in small-bore, mid-bore and open classes with all three provinces winning at least one of the classes, although Nelson's better overall results returned them the trophy.
In the other classes, the juniors had some good races, with Sebastian Wardle the best on the day to take first.
A consistent Flynn Basalaj was second and Keegan Anglesey third.
Shane McGowan dominated the Evo class, winning all three races. Bill Anglesey rode smoothly for second, with Wayne Bolitho finishing third.
The loo seat trophy for the most dumps was easily won by Kim Davies who had a shocking second race in the Evo class.
