For all the MX Mums:
By Leanne Osmond.
The EKSSC MX Mum
An early alarm, up goes the hair,
No time for much make up, no time to care.
Pack all the bags, enough food for a week.
If only my MX boy would find time to eat!
Arrive at the track and on with mum's jobs.
Signing in, paying fees, a new spark plug, we may need one of these!
Time for practise, please go well.
Any tantrums today? Only time will tell.
Let race one commence, pull up to the start.
My heart beats all fast, this start line's an art!
Flag raised aloft, the countdown is on.
We need a good start, that's how races are won!
The engines are roaring, the crowd watches on,
but the MX mum has eyes only for her son!
Around each turn, flying high in the air,
stay on that bike, that's my only care!
Adrenaline's high, you've done your best, that's my boy, now come for a rest.
Time for tea, now there's a treat, another layer, can't feel my feet!
Over to Dad now, the unpaid mechanic, all under control, never in a panic!
Engine's sound, some little tweaks, cleaning off mud and checking for leaks!
Ready for action, the bike's looking good.
What's for lunch love, did you bring any food?
Off with their mates, our boys are all happy.
Racing opponents but also best buddies.
Watching the seniors or riding their bikes,
No care in the world, that's what us mums like.
The race day wears on, a few scary moments, everyone cares about their fellow opponents.
Scores are up, meeting's going well, happy with his position, even though he fell!
I sigh with relief, no angst in our camp, sometimes there's rage, many feet have been stamped!
It's the passion you see, the love of this sport, not displaced anger, nothing of the sort.
Pride in their ride, these young lads care, pushing as hard as they can, as much as they dare.
The day is all done, are we in for a trophy?
Sometimes, yes, sometimes no, that's racing for you, it's how it goes.
Into the van, off comes my hat, I look in the mirror, my god who is that!!
The food frenzy starts, eating everything I have.
That's more like it, that's my lad.
Homeward bound, it's been a long day.
Happy memories, pictures shared, see you next week we all say.
Unpacking to do, showers to be had,
Everyone's tired, but at the same time we're glad.
Glad to be part of it, members of an amazing club, it's not just a sport, there's a community that we love.
We've been made very welcome, the Committee is ace, Marshalls, supporters, riders and parents, all with the love of a race!
So onto next the next meeting, we'll do it all again.
We love the cold, the mud, the highs and the lows, yep, we must all be insane.
How did it happen, I ask myself...how?
Wouldn't change it for the world, an MX mum, yep that's me now!
Booking in is done via GoRaceMX.com.
As payment is now done at the time of booking
you need to ensure your licence and transponder numbers are added
to avoid an extra cost being incurred.
If you were a member last year your ORMS licence number will be the same.
(If you don't know it please text 07969 458863 with your riders name and group
and it will be sent to you.)
If you are new this year, please use your temporary licence number
but put 7000 before it.
(E.g if your temporary licence has 44 in the top right corner
then your licence number will be 700044 temporarily.)
