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.
