‘Tis the season to be jumpy

WAILUA – There couldn’t have been a better way to celebrate the holiday cheer than with the last KMRA motocross race of the season, which took place Sunday at the Wailua motocross track.

All those who were there enjoyed the final race of 2002. With the point leaders already receiving their awards for this year’s performance, members of KMRA came down to Wailua for a final holiday showdown.

Some racers were recovering from this year’s brutal competition, while others were just polishing their skills for the next inter-island race. Overall, it was an enjoyable day for all the families who participated in the race, and the spectators also went home satisfied.

Club president Kip Furugen says he looks forward to the next race on Jan. 12, but his main focus is on the President’s Day motocross race held on Maui in February. Kip says that because the club did so well this year and with the success of the recent Mud-Out, he is now able to pay for the shipping of bikes for any of the club members who wish to attend the Maui race.

There are many other exciting motocross installments planned for next year, and everyone at KMRA hopes that the people of Kauai will come and participate in this stimulating sport.
