BIKE RACES

The Witness - Wheels - - FRONT PAGE -

AFTER Neil Etheridge (pic­tured) dis­cov­ered why they are called “fox!” holes while mark­ing the route for the sev­enth an­nual Man & Ma­chine at Bul­wer, the two-day nav­i­ga­tional en­duro again drew the max­i­mum of mid-level 400 rid­ers last week­end. Or­gan­iser Dar­ryl Mel­rose was happy to re­port very few in­juries and bike fail­ures com­pared to pre­vi­ous years. “It is ob­vi­ous that peo­ple are putting in the train­ing, be­cause there were some gnarly sec­tions. But we will al­ways keep it nor­mal en­duro style in­stead of bike break­ers. Well done to all who qual­i­fied for a tro­phy. “For those that didn’t, see you next year — bet­ter pre­pared,” Mel­rose posted on Face­book.
