One of the biggest events on the Australian Motocross calendar is back at Undera Speedway tomorrow night.
Three district riders will take part in the second round of the Australian Solo Speedway Championship after the opening stage at Kurri Kurri, NSW on Friday.
Shepparton’s Dakota North, Mansfield’s Max Fricke and Goulburn Valley speedway rider Jake Anderson will all be battling it out in the 16-rider event.
Goulburn Valley Motorcycle Club president Leckie Milne said he was expecting another ‘‘cracker’’ event to back up last year’s success.
‘‘It’s our biggest event for the year by an absolute mile and we absolutely packed them all in here last year, so we are expecting another pretty big crowd,’’ Milne said.
‘‘It’s probably the most prestigious speedway round in Australia for the year, so everyone is really looking forward to it.’’
Milne said more than 2000 people attended last year’s stage and he was predicting a crowd of at least that tomorrow.
‘‘We have the best riders from all around Australia coming for this one, so it’s a great opportunity to come out and see the best,’’ he said.
After finishing second last year, North will be looking to get the edge over last year’s champion Troy Batchelor, who will be back to defend his title.
The top riders from the first round at Kurri Kurri, which included Fricke and Anderson, will join the top eight seeded riders for the meet.
Round three of the championship will be at Gillman Speedway in Adelaide on Saturday, with the overall places to be decided by finishing positions across the three rounds.
