COME AND TRY: Biloela Dirtriders club are ready to start their season with a come and try day this weekend.

"WE'RE back."

Biloela Dirtriders president Grant Warry can't wait for the new season to get started and to see the club get back to "the old days".

After four years out of action, the club is back on its feet and ready to welcome new members.

"We are really excited to get going again," Grant said.

"There is no reason we can't be as good as we were, if not better."

Biloela has been known for its good riders, with Jono Porter and Harley Quinlan coming from the club.

"Back in the day those riders were the benchmark," member Cameron Pender said.

"We are hoping to bring the club back up to that standard."

To start the season, the group will be holding a come-and-try day on Sunday.

"It will be an opportunity for kids to ride with kids," Grant said.

"It is a national come-and-try day - there is no levy or anything like that."

"What they are going to have on the day is a structured practice day.

"It will give them a feel of what it is like at a practice day."
