The 2017 Husqvarna Motorcycles Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro wait is over, with one of the biggest Enduro events in Australia all set to go on Sunday 29th October.
Wildwood Rock Motorcycle Club Committee Member, Steven Braszell, has been eagerly awaiting this weekend and has spent the past week putting the finishing touches on the course.
Here’s what Steven has to say about the weekend to come:
“Gathering Australia’s best hardcore extreme riders and chuck in five overseas riders all with the focus of winning what’s not to like about that.
2016 event winner Mitch Harper is ready for this Sunday and knows that the big name of Factory Red Bull Sherco rider Wade Young will be here to take the crown from him at any chance he can get over the four hours of brutal track that is waiting. Not only has Wade come from South Africa but he will be joined by Angus and Hamish Macdonald from New Zealand who are also piloting Sherco motorcycles.
Beta have also joined the event with Tim Coleman returning after finishing 2nd last year, adding to that line-up is the Spanish giant in Pol Tarres and a very late addition to the event with Michele Bosi from Italy who will be will also be on a Beta300RR.”
“It has been a long week of getting the last few things ticked off here at Wildwood but to know it is so close now means that I get to share the event with both riders and spectators of all ages.
From brushcutting all new sections to the course to working until dark on the prologue course I can ensure this Sunday 29th October is going to top all the seven past years.
We really do have each of the classes filled with so many good riders and to pick a winner in each is just too hard to see until the finishing flag is waved.
Spectators are never let down with a visit to Wildwood, with the best skills on two wheels attending and it is only 35minutes drive from Melbourne.”
The cost to watch on the day is $20 for adults, $10 for kids up to the age of 16 and all juniors under 10years are free.
