Hard enduro specialist Wade Young arrives in Australia for Wildwood Rock Extreme


Sherco Factory racer Wade Young is aiming for his third straight Wildwood Rock Extreme victory this coming weekend. The 2017 and 2018 race winner is back in Australia preparing with the Motul Pirelli Sherco Team and is determined to claim another Wildwood victory.


“It’s great to be back in Australia and heading to Wildwood Rock once again,” said Young. “I’ve had an interesting year of racing with my fair share of bad luck and a few injuries but I’m here to race and here to go for the win. The boys at Sherco Australia are looking after me and I have new 2020 model 300 SE Factory edition which I am keen to start testing.”


Although hard on himself, Young claimed the 2019 American Hard Enduro Series and more recently placed second at the Red Bull Sea to Sky event in Turkey behind fellow Sherco hard enduro star Mario Roman. Young is determined to get back to winning form at the Wildwood Rock Extreme before taking on the Roof of Africa on December 4 in the Kingdom of Lesotho.


“I’ve been told this is the tenth year of Wildwood so I would love to claim my third victory there on a momentous occasion,” Young offered. “It’s a fun race but it’s also quite demanding. The fans are great there and they go a bit crazy which is really good fun and it certainly makes me try a bit harder.”


Wade Young will kick off his 2019 Wildwood Rock Extreme campaign this Friday with a meet and greet at Powerhouse Motorcycles in Pakenham from 4:00pm to 6:00pm.


Wildwood Rock Extreme begins on Sunday, November 10 at 9:00am at 227 Feehans Road, Wildwood. Entry is $20 adult, under-16 $10. Children under-10 are free.
