From all reports, the 2022 Hungerford Gymkhana and Enduro Weekend was a raging success.

The weekend kicked off with a traditional camp oven dinner cooked by Hungerford’s Doug Clifford at the Royal Mail Hotel on Friday night.

Doug has clocked up 30 years as president of Hungerford Sports Association, and the club presented him with an engraved Yeti Cooler instead of a gold watch.

There were more than 170 bikes in Saturdays gymkhana including 75+ open men’s riders and a good field of lady riders at least 12 plus.

There was also a good field throughout the enduro on Sunday with 65+ riders across all age groups/events.

The horse sports were also well attended by ladies with 40+ horse riders, including 19 in the open ladies’ events. There were about half a dozen in men’s group and the rest in kids age groups.

The highlight of the gymkhana is the Men’s and Ladies Double Barrel Showdown – where the winner of horse barrel race competes against the winner of the bike barrel race in a double barrel showdown.

These events were sponsored by McKechnie Earthmoving of St George in honour of Ian “Ole Mac” McKechnie formerly of Hungerford, with a $1000 winner-takes-all prize money up for grabs in each event.
