Off-Road: Over 600 riders complete KTM Sunny Corner Trail Ride


The annual KTM Sunny Corner Trail Ride held on 19-20 September in the Sunny Corner State Forest has proven to maintain its status as the most popular non competitive off-road event on the motorcycle calendar with over 600 riders participating in this year’s event.

Now in its 23rd year the KTM Sunny Corner Tail Ride, saw riders of all abilities enjoy two 75km loops of trailed riding, with many braving the cool evening to camp out, and enjoy the event festivities including live music and a bon fire to thaw out the bones.

KTM continued to support the event by donating a new KTM 450 EXC and KTM 50 SX mini as draw items for all entries.   The lucky draw for the KTM 450 EXC went to Steven Vella from Ebenezer, NSW while the KTM 50 SX went to Tony Roxby of Newcastle, who was over the moon to be bringing home this new mini for his son Daniel.

Motorex KTM Off-Road Racing’s Finke Desert 1st and 2nd place podium holders Ben (Grabbo) Grabham and Brad (Wonka) Williscroft also participated in the event, putting their competitive calendar aside to enjoy some trail riding with passionate off-road riders.

Team manager and racer, Brad Williscroft comments, “Grabbo and I had a lot of fun just mingling with riders and taking on the circuit.    It’s always good to get back to basics with riding and enjoy why we ride in the first place – for fun, we had a ball and it was a really well organised event.”
