Bulk Nutrients has claimed the naming rights for Australia‰Ûªs biggest Extreme enduro event, the 2014 Bulk Nutrients Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro.
With the event moving into its 5th year in 2014 event owner Steven Braszell
is growing the Extreme weekend into a 2 day display of the best off-road motorcycle skills from around the World right here in Wildwood Victoria on the 22nd and 23rd of November.
The 2013 event saw the world number 1 extreme rider Graham Jarvis
take out the $10,000 outright victory over team mate Alfredo Gomez
from Spain and Australia‰Ûªs Mitch Harper the 2010 event winner who worked his way from rear of field to retain 3rd overall.
The Sunday track that riders will face at the 2014 Bulk Nutrients Wildwood Rock is one that messes with minds throughout the day with an aim to complete as many laps that can be achieved in a 3 hour time frame on a track that might only see a hand full of riders even use 4th and 5th gear once started.
With a Prologue or timed seeding challenge at 9am on a fully manmade short course each rider gets the win some pre-event prize money and also try to start in the best group of five on the line for the main event at 11am.
Just like years gone by the track is made up of the NGK Ute tubs, KTM aquaplane dam, Husqvarna swinging tires, Powerhouse Sherco wet rock, Honda Horsepower Hill and the bit that all rider dread in the Beta Rock garden that has finished many top riders in years gone.
With around $30,000 dollars in prize money on offer at Wildwood it is very clear that the world is watching with many big international names showing interest in attending in David Knight, Mike Brown, Paul Bolton, Ben Hemingway, Wade Young, Alfredo Gomez
and past two time winner Graham Jarvis.
The top Australian riders that will be on the charge on home soil to look out for would be Tim Coleman, Chris Perry, Rob Nowak, Tom Mason, Nic Tomlinson, Peter Boyle
and Matthew Phillips
to name a few.
But for every rider it is clear that they share one aim and that is to finish the day without having a DNF (did not finish) to their name. 2014 will see the entry numbers capped at 100 riders only and 6 classes. (Pro, Expert, Clubman, Over 40yrs, Trials and Women‰Ûªs)
The new addition to the weekend is the Golden Tyre Extreme Hill Climb held on the 22nd of November from 11am. This is a first for all enduro events, riders will face a man-made extreme hill climb that is made up of a tall hill that has no straight lines for a power run. This is all about showing bike control the whole way while still racing the clock to the top.
Riders will each get 4 runs and the fastest time in each class gets to stay at the top until his or her time is taken from them. If the lead rider is knocked from the top they then are able to try to retain the number 1 position and prize money.
If that is not enough for a new Saturday the organiseres are also looking to set up a trials event that is sure to keep the riders looking and the spectators gasping for air as they look on with what they are viewing.
To back up the true Wildwood Rock atmosphere we will see Sound System Studios with bands giving us live music on both days, also sponsors will have trade stalls and displays within the Prologue area with event deals that cannot be beaten.
Live updates can be seen on the Wildwood Rock Extreme Facebook and youtube channel leading up to the event, with some great prizes being given away from event sponsors. It goes without saying
