Wildwood Extreme Enduro 22/23 Nov 2014

lucky melbournites, australia's only extreme enduro is on your doorstep.

seems the event is starting to take off internationally as well with graham jarvis and alfredo gomez there last year, and jarvis is back for another bite of the cherry this year.

hill climb challenge and the trials race on saturday then the main event sunday. sounds like an awesome event for the spectators too, a lot of the action happens in the one main area all within walking distance, and a shuttle bus to the interesting bits of the 13km loop further out.

a few of us are making the long haul down from brissie... should be a top weekend!

this is the Wildwood Extreme Enduro website if anyone has an MA senior licence and wants to have a crack. there are plenty of easy longer lines around the big obstacles so you don't have to be a jarvis to compete, thank god for us gumbies.

I was jsut thinking it'll be on soon again....

We went last year, (just watching), we all enjoyed it, even my mates wife who hates bikes (well probably just dislikes them).
First half of the day standing around the main area, then the afternoon move off the hill...

i kind of wish i was spectating... be a great opportunity to see graham jarvis in action. his team mate alfredo gomez is coming along too...

gomez took first place in the lagares extreme in portugal recently and has joined the top ranks in the extreme enduro world. i suspect jonny walker and the rest of the big guns will be at next year's event at this rate!

found this info for spectators:
Wildwood is only a 40 minute drive from the Melbourne CBD and 15 minutes from the airport, and there's endless parking close to the centre of the action.

On Saturday 22nd November, spectators will line the top and sides of the hill climb track and will not miss any of the trials show or the hill climb event If that is not enough we have live music on both days and plenty to look at and prizes on offer.

The main event on Sunday 23rd November is similar to endurocross but over 12km and three hours. From the prologue track it's only 300 metres to the larger hill climbs, and there's a free shuttle bus to the Beta rock garden that really tests the riders!

my guess? footage of me cartwheeling down the first steep descent then cut to credits.

seriously i've got no idea what to expect.

my rider fitness is okay but started jogging to get the cardiovascular going better.
it's almost all hills which i've sucked at until recently so will work on it the next 2 weeks.
i'll probably do better than most at the logs due to recent practice.
doing my first ever enduro in my early 50s, and an extreme one which must be some kind of elaborate suicide attempt.

i'm just going to plod around and consider it a success if i complete one lap then collapse into my camping chair for the rest of the afternoon.
