Riders rip it up at Sukey Hill in State spectacular

Cranbrook Districts Motorcycle Club held a highly successful senior and junior State round at the weekend, with more than 250 riders hitting the Sukey Hill track.

Round three of the Junior State MX Championships (140 riders) was run on Saturday, followed by round four of the Senior MX Championships (120) on Sunday.

Rising star Regan Duffy continued his red-hot form as he won both the MX1 and MX2 divisions after recently winning the Manjimup 15,000.

Duffy produced a clean sweep to win all six of his races across the two divisions.

In the MX2 class, Albany’s Corben Weinert finished second overall on points after a consistent day of racing, his best result coming when second to Duffy in the third event.

Broomehill’s Braydon Baynes finished 15th on points in the MX2 division.

Albany competitor Declan Hepworth narrowly missed out on a State round win, finishing two points behind local rider Jarrod Smith in the amateur cup, which was a great battle between a host of Cranbrook riders.

Duffy spoke afterwards on the podium, praising the track and the club and suggesting the venue was capable of holding a national round in the future.

The event was well supported by the community and had a large number of spectators attend, with many using the new pedestrian bridge.
