Preparations for the Kimberley Enduro Club’s main event are taking shape in what is set to be an endurance race to remember.

Celebrating its tenth year, the 2019 Willare Enduro will be taking place on August 23 and 24, using the facilities at the Willare Bridge Roadhouse, some 50km out of Derby.

The dirt bike race consists of a two-hour junior enduro event, where competitors will ride a 17km loop, and a four-hour senior enduro, where competitors will tackle a 47km loop.

Organisers Rob and Rebecca McGregor said the Willare Enduro attracts riders from all over the country.

“Along with local riders from Broome and Derby, we’ve got people coming in from Darwin, Alice Springs, Kununurra, the Pilbara and the South West,” they said.

“It is really shaping up to be a very exciting event.

“The Enduro is being noticed as one of the premium desert races in Australia so we would like to develop this into the big event for WA.”

The Willare Enduro is set to hold classes to suit all ages from juniors and quads to women’s and over 55’s.

Entries close on August 21.
