bike-winner
Congratulations to Sara Mills (50km Under 19 Female) for being in the right place at the right time. Sara’s name was first out of the ‘hat’ to win the random draw prize of a Giant Anthem 27.5.2.

“I’d like to thank the organisers for a fantastic event and pay tribute to James. Everyone I asked told me he was a fantastic individual with a burning passion for riding. The event was well organised, fun and professional. The prizes were awesome and I felt so incredibly lucky to have won the bike. I’ll be back next year with friends, many thanks and may the memory of James stay alive through this race.”

Radical Light Special Edition ‘Willo’ Podda

Maizy Evans is now the proud owner of a Radical Light Podda, RRP $950, after she was drawn out of more than 100 tickets sold in the raffle.

Last Rider In

In recognition of the determined effort of our final finisher for the day, David Lang (75km Open Male in a time of 5:33:15) was presented with a JetBlack Fluid Trainer. We hope this has helped David with his recovery!!

Oldest and Youngest Riders

A special mention must go to Andrew McIntosh (13km U13 Male in a time of 50:48) who was our youngest rider of the day and the very spritely 76 year old Barry Whitton (50km Super Masters Male in a time of 3:24:21) who was our oldest rider. They both received a hardcover edition of ‘A Compilation of the Works of James Williamson | Editor of Enduro Magazine | Racer | World Champion | Friend’ which we are sure they both will treasure.
