Mule Express – November 13

ENTRIES HAVE NOT OPENED FOR THIS EVENT YET

Since 2018 the Otway Enduro Club has developed a reputation for running Pony Express races which are a step up in the difficulty level. Because of this we have decided to change the name of our “Pony Express” to the “Mule Express”. Why? The word Mule does have a few meanings but in our context a mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse. Generally speaking a mule has inherit strength and stamina, but can also be used to describe a tough challenge.

The track for this Mule Express is going to be different to our previous Pone Express tracks. This track will wind up, down and across steep and hilly grass covered paddocks offering many overtaking areas. The track will also incorporate some tight single track through thick Otway forest.  You could describe it as a traditional grass track on steroids. As usually we will have a few man made obstructions placed at strategic spots to keep things interesting. The track will also contain an assortment of Rooster and Chicken lines, with a distinct advantage for the rider that decides to ride and nail the Rooster line.

This is an AMA Sanctioned Event, therefore you will require an AMA Membership to race. You can purchase an AMA membership by clicking on the orange button towards the bottom of this page.
