WHATS MAKING NEWS

Bendigo Six Hour race - Postponed!

Like us,  you have probably spent the last week checking out your favourite weather site on the web. Knowing there was a rain front due late in the week  we have spent many hours working on weather proofing our race track as best we could. Our trail crew have done a great job but unfortunately the weather has got the better of us on this occasion. 

 After an inspection of the venue earlier today we consulted with our Race Commissaire and reviewed all aspects of the event including the following:

 

  • Rider safety

  • Vehicle access to the property

  • Car parking requirements

  • Race village set up

  • Emergency vehicle access to the course

  • Potential for damage to the environment

  • Rider enjoyment

Overall we think the track could handle the race, although it would have been a muddy affair.  However when we add in all the other factors, most importantly rider safety, we have had to make the tough call to postpone Sunday's race. This wasn't an easy decision to make but we believe it is the right one.

 

We will automatically transfer all entries to the new race date which will be confirmed once we have had the opportunity to lock in our essential services like first aid, race timing and traffic management (and the coffee van).

 

Please accept our apologies for the inconvenience caused by this postponement. As riders we share your disappointment of not being able to hit the trails at Andy's this weekend but we will do our best to make it worth the wait.
