The Round 2 Venue Essentials

Round 2 will take the series to Appin in New South Wales. The track at Appin is a very well laid out circuit with many great spectator vantage points, providing incredible views of the whole track. As race day day rolls on, this track becomes extremely technical with multiple line choices, which can catch riders out. Corner speed, and the ability to contend with a deep and rutty circuit will separate the top riders from the rest!
