The 2020 Transmoto 8-Hour at Stroud, NSW, scheduled for the October 31 – November 1 weekend, will not be going ahead this year.
With the guidelines surrounding inter-regional travel for community sport being relaxed on September 26 – just three weeks prior to the event – the late notification simply left too little runway to secure all necessary permitting requirements to stage the event.
We are unwilling to push the event further back in the year due to the likelihood of dusty conditions, high fire risk, and hot temps making for a less than enjoyable riding experience.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our event partners, the landowners, participants, Mid-Coast Council, and the local community of Stroud for all their support and understanding over the past five years we’ve staged the event in the region. And we look forward to picking up where we left off on May 8-9 next year, when the 2021 Transmoto 8-Hour at Stroud is now scheduled to run.
The Transmoto 8-Hour at Stroud was first staged in 2015. It’s a unique, team-based dirt-bike event that’s somewhere between a recreational trailbike rally and an enduro race. If you Google “Stroud, NSW”, you’ll see a bunch of info about the town’s International Brick and Rolling Pin Throwing Contest. And that small-town obscurity is just the way the locals like it. Cos if they were to spread the word about the region’s rolling grassy hillsides, every dirt-bike dingo this side of Alice Springs would be on its doorstep in an instant! Not far out of Stroud, in a little valley called Gunns Gully, you’ll find a picturesque 1300-acre parcel of prime countryside – a working cattle property that was home to the inaugural Transmoto event at the venue in 2015. And ever since, its custom-built 14-16km loop has offered riders an intoxicating blend of gum-lined trails and undulating grasstrack, with 360-degree views that stretch for miles. Race it or ride it; run a motocross weapon or trail sled; fly in and fly out or make a weekend’s surf-and-moto roadtrip out of it with your mates … take your pick. But be sure to be part of what has firmly established as a must-do annual moto pilgrimage for racers and riders alike.
