The Smarter than Smoking Mini Cross is a fun cross discipline challenge competition with an emphasis on skill and rider control, not so much on speed. Children are able to have fun competition across a range of multiple disciplines from Motocross to Speedway. Aimed at Children aged 4 years to 12 years old, the goal is to build skill levels and confidence in riders and is a stepping stone for those who wish to move onto Motorcycle Sport. Using several skills-based challenges within a short Mini Cross loop, the event teaches children technical skills and how to control a motorcycle. There is a maximum of four riders competing at any one time in all events. This makes riding and learning new skills far less intimidating when starting The Smarter than Smoking Mini Cross places a big importance on fun and entrants can win events easily without having to be the fastest rider there. Brothers and Sisters can cheer the riders on or even “have a go” on one of Five Star Yamaha’s Junior bikes or quad, while Mum or Dad will get involved with running the event. Children can participate in the Mini X discipline challenge as part of the Kickstart program accreditation, which means they do not have to get a license if they are participating in that program.
