EVEDON PARK

One of the best Enduro venues on the calendar and we are thrilled to be able to return to this gem nestled in the Dardanup hills, just 30min east of Bunbury.

With parking, chalets and camping available on-site, it was easy to feel at home as competitors cooled off in a large swimming dam, hit the restaurant or bar and just relaxed in the manicured gardens. Looking forward to returning to Evedon Park. The trails are tough, raw and exciting and their are plenty of opportunities for spectators to catch the thrills and spills. Plus, we are aiming to add 2 new trails to this venue!

Course

These natural trails create an excellent Enduro course which include rock gardens, fast descents, multiple line choices and the signature ‘creek’ gap!

You’re ONLY opportunity to ride these trails all-year! Please do not contact Evedon Park to ride at any other time as it is not permitted under the zoning legislation of the Park.

Trespassers will be prosecuted and not permitted to attend the event.

Please do not jeapardise the awesome opportunity to race these awesome trails where everyone is on a level playing field!

We aim to give you the Best Enduro Experience possible and work hard to provide the Best Value Event for your Money.

Organisation

Time required to bring together all facets of the Event.

Advertising

Facebook advertising, video reels and highlights, maps, website design, signage, Instagram feeds, YouTube clips take time and fees.

Sign-posted and Bunted Course

Arriving early to setup the course. This usually involves multiple people over hours or days ensuring bunting, signage and timing equipment are in place for easy navigation and fair racing.

Event Health Services

Your Entry Fee covers St John Ambulance Services being on-site for both Saturday and Sunday. We typically employ 4 x Technicians and engage with St John months in advance

Toilets

Typically, our Events exceed the venue existing facilities. Regional Services are engaged months in advance to deliver toilets. Hire costs continue to grow as Waste Management Fees continue to increase.

Race Village

It takes time to design the Race Village to enable our awesome Sponsors to arrive and setup in suitable locations to suite their needs. Careful attention to Parking, Pedestrians and Riders is needed for the safe and accessible movement of all attendees and event crew.

Applications and Insurances

Typically, several Stakeholders need to be engaged months in advance of any Event. We liaise with Local Governments, State Departments, Auscycling, Local Residents and Trail Custodians to act in the best interests of all parties while balancing a safe and exciting experience for our Community. Fees are required for Insurance and Event Applications.

World's Best Timing System

Our Timing System is considered the World’s Best as used at the Enduro World Series. Yearly licensing, hardware and software upgrades are continuous. Additionally, we send our timing bands back to Germany as required for battery replacements at considerable expense.

Continued Development

Once the essential Event costs are accounted for, we continue to research new ways to improve Results, Live Broadcasts, Mobile Phone Apps, data presentation, website development, manage existing equipment and improve our systems with the aim for a better experience for Competitors, Spectators and our Crew.
