 … in international enduro

Local motorcycle Rider Lachlan Stanford, pictured in red, has again been chosen to represent Australia in the International Six Day Enduro held in Italy in September. This is Lach’s second time representing Australia; last year he rode in this event in Germany where the team he was a member of finished fourth in the world.

The Australian team consists of 13 riders including a six-man senior team, a four-man junior team and a three-person women’s team.

The team is selected from riders all over Australia and Byron Shire has two members including Byron Bay rider Tom McCormack, pictured in blue.

In the event riders must do approximately eight hours every day through some of the harshest terrain and along the way compete in extreme timed tests, all the while doing all maintenance and repairs themselves without any outside assistance.
