X Trials Championships 2016 Results

X Trials Championships 2016 Results

Well it was two nights of excitement and fun and not to forget lots of rain on night 2, so much so, that the finals were cut short when amongst rain and lightening, the lights at baseball park went out and that was a good time to pack up and call it a night.

“Watch Australia’s best moto trials riders tackle one of the most technical man-made course ever built. Add one huge lightening storm and torrential rain to the mix, and you have what was, the 2016 X Trial Australian”

The course was pretty challenging and at times I even thought perhaps impossible however there was one rider that mastered the most difficult part of the course and that was Kyle MIddleton who eventually did get across this most difficult part and went on to win the Championships. Well done Kyle!

At the end of two days, here are the top 3 including our own #1 Neil Price who came second.

Aussie Women Smash Two World Records

Aussie women smash two world records

Dubbo Babe Raid sets two world records aussie womenMore than 1000 Aussie women riders have smashed two world records in one hit at the Dubbo Babe Raid this weekend for the largest gathering of female riders and the largest all-female motorcycle parade.

2WheelBabes Babe Raid organiser Debb Dagger said the records were “awesome” with 1002 women from as far as Western Australia and aged 16 to 74 taking part in the parade on Saturday April 9, 2016.

“I’m, exhausted. We had a full turn up and more than the pre-registrations,” she says.

“The streets were lined all the way through for 30km through the outskirts of Dubbo as well with loads of flags and some riders all dressed up. It really was a sight for the locals.

“It was an amazing effort, and I’m so proud of every single woman who attended.”

She says there were also a lot of men who came along to support their partners and watched on from the streets.

“The after-party last night was huge with about 15-20 deep at the bar at the Macquarie Inn,” she says.

“The weekend has been an absolutely huge boom for the local economy.”

The Babe Raid set the original record in 2014 when 284 women rode to the coastal NSW town of Ballina. Record Setter officially declared the record at 221 women on 190 bikes.

However, last year a group of British women broke that record when 661 women rode to the famous Ace Cafe in London to set the world record for the largest female bike gathering and break the Aussie world record with 246 women riding bikes in a parade.

Both records have now officially been shattered!

Mrs MBW says the significance of this achievement can’t be underestimated.

“Remember, female riders account for only about 10% of the riding population and this event wasn’t held in a capital city but in the middle of NSW, so it’s quite a massive achievement for Debb and the girls,” she says.

Debb, a mother of two and senior property manager, also organises annual Babe Raids at Byron Bay (September 9-12, 2016) and Echuca in Victoria (November 4-7, 2016) and is planning to add a Queensland Babe Raid in 2017 and a South Australian raid in 2018.
