MAXXIS QUEENSLAND ENDURO SER

Round 5 of the modified Queensland Enduro Series went down on the weekend at Garapine, the home of enduro in Australia. White Lightning Events were back in full at full gallop with the borders open, an epic season finale took place in some steamy conditions….

Garapine is located just under two hours from Brisbane and about 45 minutes from the Sunshine Coast, home to a network of trails that have been a corner stone of every enduro series in the region since its inception. The trails are a mix of rocky, rooty and dusty goodness mixed into some steep sections and loose dusty corners. Round 5 of the series headed to this iconic SEQ race location and there was no more fitting way to round out the season.

A total of 169 riders hit the trails for the final round of the Maxxis Queensland Enduro Series including approximately 93 junior riders, another great showing at Garapine. As usual Garapine drew a large contingent of riders despite the sticky conditions and the trails were running fast and loose, with all six stages being used for the event. The stages were Bone Yard, Drop Bear, Double Barrel, Short Notice, Dumb it Down and King Brown; the usual culprits and a great course.

The Elite Women’s category was won by Anerlie Marquardt over Elle De Nooyer by just 18 seconds, a tight finish but not enough to take the series overall away from Elle De Nooyer.

It was an odd year, and a year many of us would like to forget but somehow the riding community and the multiple clubs, event managers and organisations have managed to give us a little bit of normal towards the end of the year. The modified race season was what we all needed and a great chance to strap on a race plate and get among friend whilst pinning it down the trail. A huge thank you goes out to White Lightning Events, all the clubs, sponsors and organisations that made it all possible.
