No entry fee for this one; just roll up to the start gates and run what you brung. (Senior Riders 16+ Only, riders must have entered at least one other race in either the Dust Hustle or main MX schedule)

What is the TT Track? It’s a smaller circuit that’s designed to accommodate road bikes, pint-sized steeds, motorcycle newbies, and anyone who’s happy to laugh at themselves … and their mates. The Dust Hustle gang will be ‘controlling’ this mayhem in traditional DH fashion, so make sure you jump in on a race or two on the TT Track.

Dust Hustle 3 Hours of Mayhem

3.00pm to 6.00pm – Featuring five sessions:

3.00pm to 3.20pm

Women’s
Girls, grab whatever ride you can wrangle and roll out for this ladies-only party group. We’ll expect some killer costumes and crazy antics from this full field of females as they show us how to Hustle! Any bike is allowed, apart from MX race bikes. Women are eligible to enter the other Dust Hustle classes too.

3.25pm to 3.45pm

Small-Bike Burners
Get the Groms out, soup up the old scooter and tear the tarp off the old farm bike, because the small-bore battle just got real! Open to any clutchless bikes, plus sub-150cc bikes with clutches. No two- or four-stroke MX race bikes – this is Dust Hustle, not Loretta Lynn’s, you muppet.

3.50pm to 4.10pm

Old Mates (Pre-’90)
Roll out the vintage and classic steeds; this Pre-1990 only class is open to anything old and awesome. An eclectic mix of desert sleds and panheads can opt to take part in this jalopy jive category. We expect there’ll be a number of $500 gumtree specials mixing it up in this category too!

4.15pm to 4.35pm

Risky Road Bikes
A road bike that is road legal (or close to), your daily ride, a weekend tarmac warrior, big adventure bike or highway cruiser. You never know where the skills you pick up here will help you. Possibly the most inappropriate, fun and impressive category. No supersport or forced-induction bikes, unfortunately – Mum’s (MoMS) orders!

4.40pm to 6.00pm

Mini Speedway Classic
No entry fee for this one. It’s just roll up, be thrown in a race with whoever and bust it out around the speedway track. Road bikes, dirt bikes, whatever … just bring what ya want cos this is just a bit of fun at the end of the day.
