Yellow Mountain Enduro coming to a paddock near you

By Dominic Geiger

The annual Yellow Mountain Cross Country motorcycle race will once again fill the paddocks between Condobolin and Tottenham with the roar of dirt bikes this weekend.

Spectators are able to view the bikes at the scrutineering event from 3 to 7pm Friday and during the start of the race at 10am on Saturday, both of which are set to be held at the Mt Tilga Motocross track, eight kilometres north of Condobolin.

Member of the Condobolin Auto sports club, Kim Lark, said the track was hilly with plenty of dust.

“I’d say there are going to be plenty of spills,” she said.

Competitor in the event, Don Lark, said he has competed in the event every year since it began.

“This is my ninth year doing the Yellow Mountain,” he said.

“It’s pretty tough, there are a fair few hills and rocks.

“The hardest thing about the track is getting to the end and back.

“We’ll leave Mt Tilga, travel through farmland, go around the back of Mineral Hill Mine and then into Tottenham,” he said.

Riders will finish the event throughout Sunday afternoon at the Mt Tilga Motocross track.
