RACE ENTRY HERE
It’s always a popular round and this weekend’s season opener will be no different with a huge roster of riders set to kick off the season in true Fox Superflow style, racing the way they ride. The Weather looks like it’s going to hold out and some epic riding conditions on track should be had, a touch of drizzle might shake the dust off the tracks and give riders some extra grip.
Jack Moir will be on site again signing autographs and getting the grommets stoked on riding bikes, there’s no doubt a banger episode of Moi Moi TV will make it’s way onto YouTube this week. You can catch the reigning EWS World Champion on Saturday from 8:30 where he’ll be signing autographs for an hour.
It looks set to be a great way to kick off racing in NSW and the first round that counts towards the East Coast Australian Overall Title. As usual Brakes Wide Open will bring you all the race results and have a cracking weekend on the bike….
