Bailey leading the pack on track
THERE'S nothing Bailey Perrin loves more than feeling the breeze against his skin as he zooms around the track.
The talented motocross rider was among 50 juniors competing at Bingera Weir on Sunday for the Rum City Motorcycle Club's race day.
The 14-year-old rider has only been riding for two years but has slowly built a reputation as a formidable rider on the circuit.
"My uncle got me into riding," he said.
"I love being out there and having fun."
Perrin doesn't have any pre-race rituals before he loosens up the throttle.
"I get pumped up before the start of the race and a little bit nervous," he said.
"I just take a deep breath and get in my zone."
Perrin finished first in the junior lites category and will now look towards the Orange to Ocean Interclub to be held in Gladstone next month.
The six-round series is a feeder event to the state and national titles.
Rum City Motorcycle Club spokesman Jonathon Blackley said it was a fantastic day out with plenty of riders from across the state.
Blackley said Bundy riders Brodie Jenner, Zye Day performed well in the 65cc, while Beau Tate Slade Oberhardt turned it up in the 50cc.
"It was a great opportunity for local riders to race here, know their track and perform well against some quality opposition," he said.
