Power Series Motorcycles – Round 3

A tension filled day at round 3 of the Power Series motorcycles with all eyes cast skyward in dreaded anticipation of the promised rain which,somewhat ironically never came into play except for a few riders needlessly shredding their wet weather tires on the almost completely dry track.

The addition of a few riders from up north,including the ex national champ,Greg Gildenhuys,our very own Quintin Ebden and Heinrich Rheeder (all essentially here to practice for the upcoming 3rd round of the national Super GP) also ensured a shuffle of the deck and indeed it was exciting watching the Western Province champion hold off against the devastating blows dished out by Gildenhuys for so long.Par for the course for Gildenhuys but for the Baron it showed how far he's come in a very short time.

Unfortunately Aran van Niekerk crashed pretty badly in heat 2 and at the moment it's very much up in the air as to whether or not he'll be able to continue on with his season.
