Welcome to THE DIRTY WEEKEND AHEAD, presented by SUZUKI , our weekly look at the events and riders that will be in action throughout the coming weekend.

From International Events and Races that Australians and even our New Zealand friends are competing in, to national events and even a list of as many local state events we can find.

NATIONAL

2014 Australian Four Day Enduro Concludes

For most of Australia's Off-Road / Enduro riders, the A4DE represents the pinnacle of Enduro races in Australia and all of our best riders and some international stars are currently fighting it out in New South Wales, with reigning two time champion Daniel Milner leading the way aboard his CDR Yamaha at the half way point.

Head back to Fullnoise.com.au Saturday night for full final results.

INTERNATIONAL

Aussie Line Up: Chad Reed, Brett Metcalfe, Michael Byrne

The penultimate round of the 2014 Lucus Oils American Pro Motocross Championship heads to a all new venue this weekend with German Ken Roczen leading his Red Bull KTM team mate, Ryan Dunge by just 7 points.

Dungey has turned things around in the second half of the season and with some help in the form of Honda riders Eli Tomac and Trey Canard getting in between himself and Roczen in at race end on a few occasions in the past few rounds, Dungey the 2010 champion with five years in the 450 class is starting to show his experience when it counts the most.

This championship is now way near over and we can expect to see a great final four motos over the next two weekends as the two KTM pilots fight it out.

In the 250 class it is the complete opposite with Yamaha mounted Jeremy Martin likely to wrap up the title this weekend.

2014 Monster Energy Speedway World Cup
Tai Woffinden leads the world speedway championship into round 8
Aussie Line UP: Darcy Ward, Chris Holder, Troy Batchelor

Tai Woffinden has a three-point advantage over the Californian going into the Rietumu Bank Latvian FIM Speedway Grand Prix, which comes to European Capital of Culture Riga‰Ûªs revamped Bikernieki Sports Complex for the first time on Saturday.

With a slender lead that could be wiped out by just one race win from Hancock, the Scunthorpe-born star knows he will have to be at his very best to stay on top.

Darcy Ward is the leading Aussie, just 15 points back from Woffinden.

FULLNOSIE.COM.AU's Weekend Ahead

We are back on our Suzuki RM-Z 250 this weekend as we head to round four of the Peter Stevens South Australian Motocross Championship at Renmark to contest the Vet B grade class once again.

It will mark only our second ride on our Yellow Terra, since the last round of the championships held at Keith, with a little travel mixed in with some Manflu ensuring our bike had a little break.

We headed out this Wednesday to have a quick ride and also to try out some Troy Lee Designs GP AIR racewear thanks to Lusty Industries and some of the latest NFX goggles from Dragon. We will continue to test out some new 2015 products this weekend thanks to Monza imports as we try out another set of racewear this weekend with a set of Shift Mainline Racewear.

This weekend will also see us try out something a little different, with the great people at www.readyramp.com.au giving us the opportunity to test out one of their Ready Ramps, that doubles as a loading ramp to get our bike on and off our Ute and then folds into shape to make the perfect rear cargo barrier allowing carry even more in the back of the Nissan D22, which will come in handy with a big camping race weekend ahead.

THAT's A WRAP

As always be sure to keep an eye on the Fullnoise.com.au Social Pages over the weekend for some images and updates regarding the weekends racing.

Then check the front page of the Fullnoise.com.au site on Monday for our MONDAY MOTOBOARD Presented by TM Racing Australia for a full list of results from all racing over the weekend.
