any help would be appreciated


The track difficulty in the VORC is or that difficult, the most difficult round will probably be Rawson for round 1 and 2 in a couple of weeks. It is pretty much tight single everywhere and it gets pretty rough towards the end. It's a red clay base and if it's even a little bit wit it becomes like ice.

You would encounter more difficult things on a normal trail ride and everyone will be able to get around the track. It is actually a requirement that the track is relatively easily passable by all levels of riders.

There is plenty of sweep riders for that round though to help out the kids but they modify the track to keep them out of the steeper slippery bits.

Get him down to give it a go, ride at his own pace and most of all just enjoy it, he will be fine.
