MOTORSPORT: More than 400 rid­ers from across the re­gion con­verged on Jandowae for its an­nual trail bike ride at the week­end which was hailed a suc­cess.

The weather only helped to strengthen the event’s turn-out, as com­peti­tors flocked in to soak up the sun­shine and ex­cite­ment of the trail bike cour­ses.

Par­tic­i­pants ranged from begin­ners to ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers, with the all-in­clu­sive event of­fer­ing a great en­vi­ron­ment for any­one want­ing to try their hand at the sport.

Jandowae Trail Bike Ride pres­i­dent Dar­ren Mar­shall said the event ex­ceeded ex­pec­ta­tions, as more than 400 peo­ple turned out for the two-day event.

“The week­end was very suc­cess­ful,” Mar­shall said.

“We had roughly 350 peo­ple at­tend last year, so to see a con­sid­er­able in­crease in num­bers is re­ally en­cour­ag­ing.”

He put down the growth in at­ten­dance to ex­tremely ac­com­mo­dat­ing stake­hold­ers and a greater en­thu­si­asm for the event from the com­mu­nity.

“Firstly I would like to thank the stake­hold­ers,” he said.

“I would also like to thank ev­ery­one that at­tended the event, as they were ex­tremely well be­haved.”

The suc­cess of the event was at­trib­uted to well kept camp­ing fa­cil­i­ties

as well as the top-class cour­ses that were on of­fer.
