POW­ERED UP: Rid­ers at Ma­nar Park will test their skills at the En­duro Chal­lenge this week­end.

RID­ERS will show their grit at Ma­nar Park this week­end.

The AGL Res­cue He­li­copter Ma­nar Park En­duro Loop Chal­lenge will push rid­ers to their lim­its, in the name of char­ity.

The four loops of­fer a range of dif­fi­cul­ties suit­able for all ages, abil­i­ties and all bikes and quads.

The loop two is only for ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers, it’s very ex­treme

Ma­nar Park’s Robyn Lai­dler said the event was about hav­ing fun and rais­ing money for a good cause.

“All the regis­tra­tion fees will be do­nated to the AGL Res­cue He­li­copter,” she said.

“And it’s not a race event; it’s ba­si­cally test­ing your abil­i­ties of you and your bike.

“The loop two is only for ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers, it’s very ex­treme.”

Each rider will re­ceive a cer­tifi­cate and photo with the num­ber of laps they have com­pleted.

“We’re hop­ing to make it an an­nual event, so rid­ers can come next year and see what they did last time and try to bet­ter it.”

The En­duro Chal­lenge is a so­cial event with 300 to 500 rid­ers ex­pected to take part.

A sausage siz­zle will raise money for AGL over the week­end, with all of the sausages do­nated by Cam and Sue’s Qual­ity Meats.

Regis­tra­tion costs $10 per bike or quad. Phone 4161 2188.
