2015 Transmoto 6-Hour Highlights

Gunns Gully played host to the inaugural Transmoto 6-Hour, but little did we or the beautiful land know how the winter weather would hold up, which eventuated in soft ground, challenging conditions and more than a few laughs. It was a gathering of the tribe, a tough course and an event to remember. Sit back and enjoy the official Transmoto 6-Hour highlights video shot from the hills, gullies, riders and air from 2015.

This first creek crossing claimed more than a few riders straight off the bat and into the day. 


For example, after a couple of laps. 


The first corner was slick.
