Weekend Warriors … The Real Winners!

3 months ago | Words: Andy Wigan | Photos: Donat O'Kelly

You spoke, we listened. So, from the Transmoto 8-Hour at Wangaratta onwards, a new ‘Weekend Warrior’ team category will be the headline act at all Transmoto Enduro Events. Our events were conceived as participation-based, teams-oriented races for the everyday rider, which is why the Weekend Warrior category has now been officially introduced to recognise and celebrate the majority of event entrants who pay for their bikes, parts, gear, travel costs and race entries in cold hard cash, and like nothing more than getting out there and tearing around on their bikes with their mates on the weekend.

Ever since they kicked off in 2011, Transmoto’s Enduro Events have been all about amateur riders, and the laid-back spirit of our events continues to be a key ingredient behind their success. So while there’s always going to be a handful of trophy-hunters at these events (Pros, former Pros, has-been Pros, or never-was Pros making up for an unfulfilled youth), rest assured that the primo awards and trophies will be reserved for the events’ heart of soul, the Weekend Warriors.

Speaking of entries for the inaugural Transmoto 8-Hour at Wangaratta (Sept 21-22), we expect they’ll sell out fast, so get in quick when entries open to the public later this week (Friday, July 19, at 4pm AEST). Aside from the fact entries are strictly capped at 400 riders (and there’s always an enthusiastic take-up by Transmoto Tribe members and previous event entrants, who are granted 48 hours and 24 hours of priority-entry access, respectively), remember that anyone entering the 2019 Transmoto 8-Hour at Wangaratta automatically goes in the running to win a 2020-model Husqvarna!
