One of the former pro riders who will be taking to the line at Conondale next Sunday is Cody Mackie. Mackie who raced the MX Nationals for a number of years before retiring in 2013 to pursue a stuntman career, shared that he‰Ûªs keener than ever to get behind the gates, and has challenged some of his former rivals to a ‰Û÷gloves off‰Ûª battle at Round 3.
