Wildwood Rock bigger and better and with more entries in 2017
The 2017 Husqvarna Motorcycle Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro is about to see entries go live on the 20th of July.

With the event selling out in 2016 within 3 days, this year Wildwood, on October 29th, will see an extra 50 riders added to the day giving it a total of only 150 who will be able to take on Australia‰Ûªs very own Hard Enduro.

Event Owner Steve Braszell said, ‰ÛÏTo see Wildwood in its 8th year is just mind blowing and watching the sport grow each time we open the gates is great. With more and more Australian‰Ûªs heading overseas for Hard Enduro‰Ûªs and riders cross training their skills from Enduro and Trails it is crazy to see what can be done on an Enduro bike now.

"This also keeps me on my toes to make sure that riders coming to Wildwood will finish but at the same time while racing be mentally and physically challenged in ways that they would normally be able to train for. With the brutal conditions at Wildwood and constant demand for concentration, riders rely on the uproar and support of the spectators to give them a lift when needing to get them around the 12km course.

"Over the years gone bye we have seen International riders like Graham Jarvis, Alfredo Gomez, Ben and Dan Hemingway attend and this year will be no different with the doors open for the world to attend," Braszell continued, "Locked in already to make the trip down under is yet another World Enduro and Extreme Champion in David Knight who is no stranger to racing tough events, he will be paired up on a KTM 300 for the event and sure to show us all what he can do with it. Another bonus is having managed to hold on to David for some coaching days on the extreme course the week after the main event.

Returning to Wildwood for the 2nd time with the number 1 plate is Australia‰Ûªs Toughest Extreme rider from Bright in Victoria Mitch Harper.

‰ÛÏIt feels awesome heading into this year‰Ûªs Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro running the #1 plate, feels like the hard work has paid off," Harper said.

With the Pro class this year having to go through a grueling 4 hours, Harper - who will be aboard the 2 stroke fuel injected Husqvarna 300 - thinks it will be tough going.

‰ÛÏTo be honest I didn‰Ûªt even know about the format change, but I think it will be tough on man and machine for that extra hour slogging away‰Û
