  • Description

    MORE THAN 100 YOUNG DAREDEVILS TOOK PART IN BRITAIN'S SIXTH ANNUAL SOUTHERN NATIONAL MOTOCROSS CHAMPIONSHIPS TODAY AT THE ??? PARK MOTORCYCLE COURSE AT RINGWOOD IN HAMPSHIRE.

    SOME OF THE YOUNG RIDERS WERE ONLY SIX YEARS OLD AND MOST IN THE EARLY TEENS. BUT, IMITATING THEIR ADULT HEROES OF THE MOTORCYCLE CIRCUIT THEY DONNED HELMETS AND SCARVES AND SCRAMBLED OVER THE TOUGH CROSS-COUNTRY COURSE AT BREAK-NECK SPEEDS.

    THE COMPETITORS WERE DIVIDED INTO THREE CLASSES BY AGE: JUNIORS WERE UNDER 11 YEARS OLD, GROUP A UNDER 13 AND GROUP UNDER 16. THE RIDERS IN GROUPS A AND B WERE ALLOWED TO USE ANY BRITISH MOTORCYCLE UP TO 125 CC WHILE THE JUNIORS HAD TO BE CONTENT WITH SMALLER MACHINES.

    TODAY'S RACE SAW ITS SHARE OF SPILLS AND TEARS BUT THERE WERE COMPENSATIONS TOO -- IN THE FORM OF A CONSOLING KISS FROM AN EQUALLY YOUNG ADMIRER OR A WORD OF PRAISE FROM A PROUD PARENT.
