GOOD VIBES, THAT’S WHAT WE WANT
Created in 2019 by locals Steve Hryniszak and Ian Stuart, TongDuro has a real chilled vibe with trails built to satisfy both novice or expert.
2019 was our first year and was created as a trial day to see if we could actually create an event that we could build upon, thankfully it was a great success, with fantastic feedback from riders, spectators and all involved.
Racing held over 1 day with 50 riders competing, the format was pretty standard as per typical enduro rules, 50 riders, 2 separate downhill timed trails, raced twice each with cumulative times representing your position on the leader board… simples!
Post-race activities included a raffle for all the goodies donated by our awesome sponsors then podium presentations for our day’s hero’s. We continued into the night with live music, dodgy dancing, bbq and general shenanigans for those who travelled far and wide to make the day.
We are grateful for those sponsors who supported us in 2019, all companies were approached specifically due to their product quality & brand ethos, this is how we see promoting TongDuro as an event.

Thank you to all our sponsors in 2019
We are now in discussions with both those sponsors from 2019 and new potential sponsors for 2020.
PLENTY OF GOODIES UP FOR GRABS
We received loads of goodies from our sponsors so what better way to share than to raffle them off and give all riders a realistic chance of walking away with something.
FEEDBACK WILL HELP SHAPE 2020
We purposely restricted our marketing in 2019 to focus on the riding however, some spectators (and hecklers) did turn up and their feedback was pretty awesome, 2020 will be different, we will encourage spectators to come along and add to the atmosphere, hecklers also very welcome!
