Ten years ago around Christmas, we got together our mountain bike friends for a festive barbecue that served as a research focus group to decide on a name for our events business vision. Over Martin’s very first “Turducken”, way too much gravy and cake as well as heated arguments and passionate discussions, Rocky Trail Entertainment was born in our friend Richard’s backyard in Annandale just around the corner from our first “Rocky Trail HQ” in Leichhardt.
As the New Year draws closer, those memories have become even more vivid in our minds as we are so proud and thankful to have such an amazing crowd of #rockytrailracers and supporters and sponsors and friends around us – the 2017 season was a memorable one and we would like to share some of those unforgettable moments with you as captured throughout the year by the talented OuterImage-crew: Gilbert Romane and Richard McGibbon.
Come onto a journey through 2017 with us – 20 races, 20 awesome weekends out on rocky trails – Enjoy!
