Annual Pony Express motorcycle Enduro | Results
The Nhill Motorcycle Club hosted another very successful event on Saturday, with over 300 riders from right across Victoria, South Australia and New South Wales converging on a site just east of Nhill for the sixteenth annual Pony Express Enduro.

This is an annual four hour off-road motorcycle event which is designed to challenge both rider and bike over some of the most demanding and diverse terrain in the Wimmera-Mallee.

It is open to riders of all ages and skill levels, beginning with Juniors through to the four hour Senior event which includes Iron Man and Pony Express classes.
