2020 Sunny Corner Trailbike Ride Cancelled

3 weeks ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Yamaha Motor Australia

Sadly, the 2020 Sunny Corner Trailbike Ride has been cancelled. What would have been the 34th running of the largest organised trailride in Australia – initially scheduled to run on September 12-13 – won’t take place at all this year. As Central Tablelands MCC’s Luke Seymour explains, the club had little choice but to cancel it for 2020 with the ongoing uncertainly created by restrictions around mass gatherings.

“With the government’s restrictions, we had no choice but to cancel the 2020 Sunny Corner Trailbike Ride until next year,” Seymour told Transmoto. “As Forestry will not even look at issuing event permits until late July or early August, that timeframe doesn’t leave us enough time to organise an event of this scale. Plus, the Government’s social distancing restrictions will mean that both sign-on and presentation will be a struggle to stage. So, the Sunny Corner Trailbike Ride will have a much-deserved year off, and come back in 2021 when the world has settled down. The Sunny Corner team didn’t want this outcome. We wanted to use our event to put some normality back into peoples’ lives, but it’s simply out of our control at this stage. Many thanks again to all our sponsors, who we hope can still be part of the event in 2021,” Seymour went on to say.
The draft dates for next year’s Sunny Corner Trailbike Ride is September 10-12, 2021.
