ABOUT OTWAY ENDURO CLUB

Who is Otway Enduro Club?

Established in 2018, Otway Enduro Club operates in the South Western District and is run by volunteers passionate about off road riding. The club was formed by like minded dirt bike riders because there was nothing like it in the area. With a number of committee members spending countless hours and many years riding in enduro events all over Victoria and interstate or ferrying their children to events only to be disappointed with the course or the length of the race.

While most people might find it easier to sit back and do nothing, not our dedicated committee who decided to form Otway Enduro Club. What you see on this website is the commitment already put in and the opportunity to turn our little club into a family of dirt bike riders brought together by the love of a sport.

OEC Member Meetings

Monthly meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month at the general store in Gellibrand. Our initial meetings in 2018 were used to plan the structure of the club and what we wanted to club to become. As 2019 fast approaches we are now using these meeting to organise our upcoming races. Races don’t happen without many hours of input from our members, a race day doesn’t just need riders, we have volunteers as course marshals, registration assistants, food and beverage assistants and our first aid tent.

All Otway Enduro Club members are encouraged to attend to discuss what the club is planning for the future.

TYPES OF RIDES/RACES WE HOLD

PONY EXPRESS

Traditionally held on grass fields, we are seeing more pony express races incorporate man made obstacles, like rock gardens and tyre walls. Our pony express races are designed to encourage junior riders and beginner to intermediate riders to give racing a go. Tough sections will have chicken run alternatives. When each race is released for entries a detailed description of the race will be included.

HARD ENDURO

Almost like you see on Red Bull channel our Hard Enduro are not graded as extreme but will test the ability of the best riders. The courses will vary but remain challenging with man made technical sections mixed with naturally terrain. These events will be run on private property, under a controlled environment.

ARROW COURSE

Great for people who enjoy enduro riding but also relish the challenge of using your brain to navigate a carefully laid out course.  These events have a 30 sec staggered start for riders.  The format allows us to set out a different track each time, an Arrow Course race can cover up to 200kms but it is not unknown to have a 6 to 8 hour race that only covers 100 kms.
