Win Big @ The 2017 Watagan Rally

The Watagan Trail Bike Rally might not be the only event where entrants can win a dirt bike, but as far as we know, it’s the only trail bike rally where you can win a choice of bikes. That’s right, all pre-paid entries into the 2017 Watagan Trailbike Rally, powered by KTM & Husqvarna, go in the running to win a choice of any bike in either KTM’s or Husqvarna’s enduro model-range. How cool is that!

But the Watagan Rally’s appeal runs much deeper than the opportunity to win bikes, and that’s why the event has forged a reputation as a must-do annual ride for a huge cross-section of dirt bike enthusiasts for the past 14 years. Famous for the picturesque pine forest surrounds of its staging/camping area and the region’s incredible variety of riding terrain, the August 5-6 Watagan Trail Bike Rally includes riding on both Saturday and Sunday, on-site camping, Sunday breakfast and lunch, trade displays, and the chance to win a heap of sponsor prizes. And for 2017, organisers have thrown in an official event T-shirt as part of the entry fee.

According to TrailBikeRallys.com’s Chris Flaherty, “It’s fantastic to have both KTM and Husqvarna on board for 2017 as naming-right sponsors. Aside from these two premium brands’ promotional support and presence at the rally, their involvement also means that entrants have a great opportunity to demo both brands’ enduro models in their natural habitat. For 2017, we’ve included more fresh trail and redesigned loops, but the event’s notorious mix of terrain remains. From rocky ridgetops to loamy rainforest to sandy creekbeds, the 2017 rally’s loops have got a bit of everything. Plus there are ‘easy’, ‘hard’ and ‘expert’ sections to make sure we cater to riders of all abilities,” Flaherty went on to explain.

Bookings for Husqvarna and KTM demo loop – which will be run through local dealerships, Powersport Central and Coastal Motorcycle Centre – will be taken on the day on a first-in, best-dressed basis.
Entries for the 2017 Watagan Trail Bike Rally will open at 9am this Friday, May 5, with discounted early-bird entry available before July 21. Get amongst it!
