Off Road Club Champs
Have you tried Flat Track Racing?? Motocross riders join in & try Flat Track Racing, throw on a couple of trails or road tyres on you bikes and I am sure you will enjoy this type of racing.
Round 1 of the DMCC ORCC will be held at the State Motorcycle Complex at Broadford on Saturday the 18th of February. The event will be a FLAT TRACK format. All riders with a capacity greater than 80cc 2/S or 150cc 4/S will be required to run a Trials Universal or Road Trail tyre on their rear wheels, Strictly no nobbies on rears but fronts are fine. Practise will start at 12.00 and racing will begin at 1.00, with sign on from 11.30. A BBQ and a few drinks will be provided after racing has finished.
Classes will range from Pee Wees through to Experts, so if you havent tried flat tracking before come along and see what all the fuss is about.

Entry fees will be $35.00 for seniors and $20.00 for juniors.

2006 AIS Womens Training Camp
Motorcycling Australia (MA) is now accepting applications from female Motocross and Moto-Trials competitors for a five-day training camp at the Australian Institute of Sport in Canberra from April 24-28.
Open to senior national competition licence holders, three (3) days of the camp will be set aside for general sports science (nutrition, sports psychology, exercise physiology, strength & conditioning, etc), with the balance on motorcycle-specific training. The latter will see participants receive personalised tuition from some of Australias leading coaches.
There is financial assistance available for travel and bike freight to the camp.
Applications are open forthwith, and close on Monday March 13. For more information, contact Daniel Hutchinson at MA, phone (03) 9684 0500, or email email@example.com.
Welcome to New Members
As you can see by the following members that joined on our first practice day & along with membership renewals we were kept busy, I would like to thank Mrs Jenny Reeves a Life Member from the DJMXC days. She was my first contact with the DJMXC, as her husband was president during that time, sorry if I kept you busy Jenny. Jenny has now offered her help, as she will be visiting the track to watch her grand children ride (Pearce Family Luke, Ben & James)
