2020 has been a year that has gifted much disappointment both here and abroad, with the vast majority of mountain bike racing being effected. The border closures at the moment mean that White Lightning Events can no longer cross into Queensland and as such timing and event management cannot be continued in their current format. They have been working hard behind the scenes with clubs and other entities, securing the next three round of the season with the help of All Mountain Solutions. Unfortunately State Championships is cancelled for this year.
Along with the news of the changed format for the season comes some more somber news from the team at White Lightning Events. 2020 will be the last year that White Lightning will be involved in the Queensland Enduro Series and as such we are unsure of what next year’s race series will look like. The tough decision was made by the team who have done an amazing job bringing us the last few years of epic race seasons and amazing events. We at Brakes Wide Open are thankful for the endless work that have put in, the great races in enduro, downhill and other disciplines and for bringing us worry free racing that always left a smile on our dial.
We sure the future is bright for the team at White Lightning and look forward to seeing what they have in store for 2021….
As usual we will keep you updated on all the gravity racing in Queensland as it comes to hand, so rest assured that as soon as we know so will you. For now stay safe out there and see you on the trails….
