The Harley Quinlan Ride Day is shaping up to be one of the biggest events of the year.

A gifted dirt bike racer, Harley Quinlan crashed injuring his spinal cord three weeks ago, and as he recovers his fellow riders, friends, industry leaders and sponsors are rallying behind him in effort to aid in his recovery and to show him that he is not alone.

On 12 December at Blue Rock Motocross Track near Moe, Victoria, past and present Australian champions will showcase their talents in a pro race.

The day will be filled with action as riders of all classes demonstrate their skills.

The feature will be an all-in pro race, with confirmed riders including Cameron Taylor, Josh Cachia, Adam Monea, Cheyne Boyd and Jye Harvey, plus guest appearances from two of the biggest names in freestyle motocross – Blake Williams and Cameron Sinclair.

A $5.00 donation will be collected at the gate from those coming to check out the action.

An auction will be conducted at lunch with over $20,000 worth of items up for grabs.

Memorabilia from past and present, international and national champions as well as tool boxes and race team merchandise will be available to bidders.

A number of one-off items will also be available, sure to put a smile on the face of a loved on this christmas. In turn the contribution will help to raise funds and awareness for Harley, who fell tragically doing what he loved.
