Canning Motor Trimmers Arthur River Vinduro riders report

Great weekend at the Arthur River Vinduro, New venue and a great new track. 35 riders enjoyed another awesome Vinduro event .Couldn’t of asked for better weather, two days of sunshine made for great riding conditions. A 9km track that tested everyone’s riding skills, with some tight technical rock sections and some wide open paddock fence lines. With the rock sections catching out a few of the riders.

A couple of COC awards were handed out. One going to Michael Feathers for hitting a rock in the middle a paddock that even blind Freddie could’ve seen. And one to Bill Neild for his less than impressive riding skills.

A big thanks to Matt Carne for Hosting the event. And as always, thanks to the members who marked out a great track, the sweeps and the first aider.

A shout out to Bill who had travelled from the ACT on holidays and decided to ride the event and to Steve who travelled from England and also attended the event . it was good to have a chat to you guys and , and we hope you enjoyed the Vinduro WA event.

A couple of action shots from the weekend.

South West Yamaha Collie Motorplex Vinduro Riders Report

April 15-16.

Another great Vinduro event at the Collie Mortoplex. 30 riders on a track that most riders stated was probaly the best Collie track to date. 12.9 Km,s of an awesome mix of tight single track, long straights, deep sand and short technical rock sections. We had just enough rain to stop any dust and to bed the track in. To top off the great riding conditions, the track ran straight past the Motorplex track, and some riders took advantage of this by stopping and watching the road bikes screaming around the track.

All in all it was another great Vinduro event, and we are looking forward to seeing you all Karridale in a few weeks.
