ALL ROADS LEAD TO SUZUKI CLASSIC DIRT 8!
Our good mates at VMX Magazine have pulled the trigger and launched details of the 2011 version of the annual Suzuki Classic Dirt event.
This year's event will be Suzuki Classic Dirt 8 and all roads lead back to the lush Green Park lay-out at Conondale on the Queensland sunshine coast over the June 10/11/12/13 long weekend
After years of wanting to be there, we finally made it to last year's Classic Dirt event and had a rip-roaring good-time, so we're first to stick our hands up to get in amongst the action at this year's event.
There will be a feast of riding (but no racing!) to be had over the weekend, for classic motocross, trail/enduro and trials bikes on purpose-built courses, as well as the annual swap-meet festivities, Legends Laps from a plethora of vintage dirt bike heroes and more good-time socialising than even Charlie Sheen could keep up with!
And if you're into vintage adventure bikes like we are, the big news is TRAIL ZONE, www.offroadexplorer.com and www.adventuremoto.com.au are teaming up to lead a ride for vintage adventure machines from the NSW mid-north coast to the event. Look out for more details on this ride in the latest issue of TRAIL ZONE (#34 that goes on-sale at the end of this week) and on the ORE web site.
As for more event information about Suzuki Classic Dirt 8 and how you can enter to ride or just spectate and soak it all up, check out the www.vmxmag.com.au web site and then get the necessary leave pass from the boss and take aim on Conondale on the June long weekend -- we'll see you there!
