          Great. They have a focus on making it spectator-friendly and also family-friendly. And awesome to see kids going for it in the Junior class too.

            Greg Peterson from Grassroots Enduro Australia did a brilliant job for his first ever enduro event. And it's great to see a whole series developing now, here are the next ones....

            June 15 Echo Express, Queensland
            June 22, Insane Ride, Tasmania
            July 20, Murrimbidgee Rumble, NSW
            Aug 13, Outback Enduro, Queensland

            Really good to see a positive attitude with these guys that will do the sport credit. Here's a bit from Greg's thank you message on the Facebook page:

            "Post race wrap up, a personal thank you.

            Now the dust has settled, the sweet smell of two stroke and steaming coolant has dissipated Iíd like to thank everyone for attending the A.M.A Grassroots Kosciuszko Killer.

            A month or so out from the event I was hoping around 65 riders would enter as that would be a nice easy number to manage and would help ease our crew into the world of hosting enduro events, well bugger me the entries kept coming and coming and before I knew it we had 190 riders signed up to our very first hard enduro, we had riders coming who have competed in Romaniacs, Sea To Sky & Erzberg Rodeo, Australiaís best hard enduro riders!

            The pressure for me was on and the sleepless began, but I was loving it, the challenge is easier when itís your passion.

            I was truly humbled and grateful, the fact event was working so well had very little to do with myself and my Grassroots partners, Ryan Peterson, Steven Wahby & Ben Grabham, it was a massive team effort from every single person at the event, the spectators, the Corryong Lions, the Police, the local paramedics, Corryong Health, S&K Whitehead Earth Moving, the Deputy Mayor Andrew Whitehead, Sergeant Liam McMahon, the local businesses who donated prizes and supported us, Roger C Brown (Honda dealer) Murray Goulburn, Snowy Hydro, Corryong Tyre & Auto, Rod McInnes Corryong Service Centre.

            There were riders who travelled from Cairns, South Australia, Queensland, NSW and Tasmania to attend the event, that is dedication, thank you for taking the time away from your work, your family and supporting us. Credit to each person who attended for not leaving any rubbish behind, the property was left spotless.

            Sweep riders, wow what a top job you lot did, helping set the tracks up, helping riders, recusing bikes, de-tagging tracks and taking a huge load of my mind, thanks for your time and effort, forever grateful.

            Thank you to the Australian Motorcyclist Association and Daryl Petch for helping us make this possible, the A.M.A has been a breath of fresh air and enabled us to provide low cost events and licensing for riders.

            Our sponsors, the work they have put in behind the scenes and the faith they have put in Grassroots Enduro has been astounding, each of them so supportive and generous, a massive thank you to each and everyone of you, we look forward to growing with you as a team.

              Good read

              More events like this in Australia and hopefully the hard enduro will be as popular one day as it is in Europe.

                  I entered in bronze mainly to show my support for the new event and Greg the organiser (former DBW'er Shrek) and had a fun weekend. Having only rode my bike once or twice in the last year I was a bit worried that I was in a bit over my head but the bronze track was well suited to my current level of fitness.

                  Only did 2 laps before deciding to call it early and hit the long road home with body and bike intact but will definitely be getting more bike time in before next years event and enter in silver.

                  Greg and co did an awesome job organising the event and I reckon it will really take off next year so I'll be getting my entry in early.
