heres the words of our commentators! Andrew Moss Well what a ripper of a day! Trav and I had a chat after we were able to catch our breath from the frantic pace of the Pro Tour riders tearing it up at Park Orchards today for Round No 3. In the Pro Ladies class young Jaclyn Wilson leads the charge but how tough are the BMXMAD riders, Erin Anderson & Emily Richardson after a major crash in heat 2! Both ladies picked themselves up and finished the day in style. The dark horse of the class is Caroline Sobotka as she made some terrific moves through the day and seems to be enjoying her racing. Vet Pro, well what can we say?! The guys are very fast but Gary Morgan took the honours today with 3 wins, followed closely by the Slatter boys. Kiddle, Rickett and Rogers are just waiting for those boys to make a mistake and take advantage. A Men!!!!!!!!!! The depth of this class is absolutely unbelievable! Pope and I were perplexed in regards to whom the rider of the day may be but, Te "Freako" won the day infront of a star studded group of lads including the birthday boy Matty White (14 yrs old today) finishing 3rd, Jake Sverns (JS) finished 2nd but didn't seem to have the same fire in the belly as usual, still great riding. AA Men, the elite in our sport did not disappoint! Heat 1, Olivier Hoarau (1st) Tom Siinmaa (2nd) Jordan Morgan (3rd). Heat 2, Tom Siinmaa (1st) Matthew Dunsworth (2nd) Olivier Hoarau (3rd). Heat 3, Matthew Dunsworth (1st) Tom Siinmaa (2nd) Dave Habicht (3rd). Siinmaa won the day over Hoarau and Dunsworth but the depth of the field is exciting, guys like Collins, Lautier,Habicht are banging hard on the door. Jordan Morgan had an off day for his usual wicked standards but true to his style he will aiming for retribution come racing at Geelong! It was very exciting seeing Matty Dunsworth race today, for me (Mossy) he was the stand out in our premier class today as he rode with purpose and vigar! Well done to all our elite athletes as you are amazing to watch, can not wait for Round No 4 at Geelong Bmx Club next Sunday the 1st of April!!!! trav and mossy will be making this a regular spot so thanks to them this is what we need to show our exciting sport to outsiders/sponsors etc ·
well round 4 of the TOUR is almost upon us (GEELONG SPECCY) so before we get to that id like to take time out to let you behind the scenes of the PRA team without them the TOUR would not exist. the founders/trouble causers are trev stamford and gary morgan with PRO TOUR facebook down to jordan morgan, amanda morgan and mario (MD PRINT) looking after the promotional material . we have corey doyle working that video camera capturing all the action and a new recruit stephanie hunt on the stills camera, we now also have on the team mossy and trav who's insight into the sport is second to none and great commentators really hype it up. with help along the way from jenko, tom sinmma, matty d, levi, chris molloy, wayne daniels. it has been said that trev and myself are running the PRA but we couldn't do it without everyone's help, if you have anything you would like to contribute to the PRA and the PRO TOUR drop us a line or just stop us and have a chat it means a lot when we get some feedback well be in the PRO TOUR tent at GEELONG see you there!
here at PRA headquarters we don't rest on our Loral's, far from it the fact is we are not content with TOP 3 number plates for each PRO class or the huge UNITED PRA cup and $400 cash bonus. Not to mention the best racing the victorian pro classes have had in ten years and the biggest turnouts of PROS for the start of any vic calendar in memory! Even the $2000 PRO purse for the top 8 shootout at rnd 5 in SHEPPARTON, just isn't enough there was something missing keeping us awake at night! finally it was clear and here it is.

65 PRO entries what a fantastic turnout great support guys lets put on a show for the locals and showcase top level PRO racing. the points races are not yet decided by any means 1 mistake by any gold star rider will see their lead cut dramatically the idea here is target the nearest guys to you in the points and stay ahead of them no matter what! good luck to all riders.
well guys what a day on behalf of the PRA team i would like to congratulate the GEELONG crew for supporting a round 4 of the PRO TOUR we hope it lived up to your expectations as i certainly did for us. we knew the PRA format would work but it was the level of success that was the mystery after 4 rnds the SPECCY was the answer we needed, with just short of 70!!!!! pro's the PRO TOUR and PRA format is definitely the way of the future. thanks again GEELONG great day guys. don't forget to nominate a rider for the PRA RISING STAR AWARDS on Facebook and checkout some great pics from the SPECCY
