ROUND two of the Hervey Bay Motocross series was a rough ride for the blokes on spokes with the sandy Dundowran Park circuit wreaking havoc for some competitors.

Already one of the trickiest tracks to master, rain in the lead-up to Sunday's meet made life even more difficult for riders, who were forced to focus on their line selection more than ever.

Slight variations in track conditions also created some technically challenging sections in the course.

Throw in some gnarly bumps and tight turns and riders had to push their ability to the next level.

"The track was difficult and sapped the energy out of all the riders," Hervey Bay Motocross Club spokesman Mark Cook said.

"They (riders) certainly needed to be on top of their game, but it was still a good day of racing."

While some riders struggled to find their flow in the demanding conditions, Bundaberg's Casey Turner ripped through it with ease.

He showcased his full repertoire of skill to win his two motos en route to claiming the ultra-competitive senior lites class by one point.

Maryborough's Kyle Chay was second overall - earned with two seconds and a first - and Brodie Downes scraped home in third.

The tough conditions also brought out the best in the club's junior riders, especially Blake Tippo, who went undefeated in the 65cc and 85cc 9-11 years categories.

William Kennedy (50cc auto), Riley Estcourt (85cc 12-15 years) and Zak Small (junior lites) also recorded clean sweeps in their events. Quinn Turner-Pavey recovered after a slow start to win the last two motos and claim competitive clubman lites on a count back.
