Motorcycle club excels

GYMPIE Motorcycle Club has had an immediate impact on the first leg of the Suzuki Enduro Cross held at Iron Pot, near Kingaroy, at the weekend.

Gympie Motorcycle Club spokesperson Donna Jeremy said the club “didn’t come away disappointed”.

Podium finishes for the club included the following, in their respective classes:

First – Guy Parkinson, Ben Korn and Codie Winston.

Second – Peter-Daniel Allen, Truman Winston and Sarah Brook.

Third – Dave James and Kasey Winston.

The glowing results were achieved in dry and dusty conditions owing to the rain yet to travel that far inland at that stage.

Jeremy said it was great to see the camaraderie shown by the Gympie competitors, who camped overnight for the event.

“Everyone gets on so well,” she said.

“If there is a problem with a bike, everyone gets in and helps fix it to get it back on the track.

“It makes it a joy to travel away as a club and compete.”

With more events looming on the horizon, Gympie Motorcycle Club members will continue to train hard.
