Dirt Bikers Rev Up Their Engines For Kids With Cancer
Challenge is calling on dirt bike riders across Victoria to get on board the 11th annual KTM Ride4Kids event for the chance to meet their pro-rider idols and win one of two brand-new KTM dirt bikes.

Ride4Kids is Australia’s biggest charity dirt bike event, raising much needed funds for Challenge, a not-for-profit organisation supporting children and families living with cancer.

This year, the event is moving to the world-class MX track at the Dandenong Motorcycle Club in Wonthaggi and offers a full day of non-competitive riding where participants can opt to ride in either motocross or extreme enduro events. Various sessions will take place throughout the day, starting with the 50cc juniors through to the open class of thumping 450 big bores. A new ‘pee wee’ track will also provide a safe introduction for young children learning to ride.

Riders who raise $300 will automatically go into the draw to win a KTM 85SX bike worth $6995. A second KTM 85SX worth $6995 will be awarded to the event’s overall highest fundraiser and additional prizes will also be up for grabs for the top 10 fundraisers.

Race ambassador and KTM racing champion, Brenden Harrison, will be at the event along with other dirt biking champions.

“The emphasis of Ride4Kids is on having fun. It’s a fantastic day out for all the family and a good chance for riders to get some practice on a professional track while doing their bit to help kids and families in need. All sessions are an open practice format with no actual racing on the day so people of all ages and abilities can get involved,” said Brenden.
