Australian Hard Enduro Championship
Run & Won!
The Capricorn X-Treme located in Mount Morgan Qld tested the best of the best and drew consensus from the Pro class that it was hardest event they have ever raced.
“ %$#@ me, that’s the hardest race I have ever done “
Rob Nowak: Gold Class winner
The event itself wasn’t without it’s challenges, covid lockdowns lifting just in the nick of time for SEQ and 80mm of rain falling on the region saw the access road almost impassable on prologue day and in turn a new camp ground established, however it was conveniently located immediately in front of the race property, BONUS!
The weather gods had us worried but ultimately race day turned into the best conditions we could have asked for, crystal clear blue skies greeted us at the crack of dawn, the access road became passable and the tracks turned from dry & dusty into what every rider dreams of, moist conditions and awesome terrain
“If I had to race one track for the rest of my life it’s that one”
Chris Dark: Silver Class winner
