Wade Young Primed For Wildwood Rock


Red Bull extreme enduro athlete Wade Young arrives in Melbourne tomorrow to begin preparations for this weekend‰Ûªs Wildwood Rock Extreme enduro on the outskirts of Melbourne.

The South African rider will headline a field of 150 riders who attempt the four-hour cross-country motorcycle race over an extremely technical and tough course. Steep hills littered with rocks, huge logs, bog holes and man-made obstacles including a section where riders are forced to ride through an old school bus will test man and machine to the brink of exhaustion.

Young is no stranger to extreme off-road motorcycle racing, having won the infamous Roof of Africa on his first attempt in 2012 as a 16 year-old. Young has since chalked up victories in Hells Gate, King of The Hills and made the podium at Romanics, Ales Trem, Sea to Sky and Battle of The Vikings.

Young will race a Sherco 250 SE-R at Wildwood Rock where he hopes to take the win at what is shaping up to be the most exciting edition of Melbourne‰Ûªs craziest motorcycles race to date.

The 2017 Wildwood Rock Extreme enduro will take place this Sunday, October 29 at 227 Feehans Road, Wildwood. The Prologue starts at 9.00am with the main race starting at 11.00am.
