HELLFIRE CUP 15′ / WE LOVE THIS RACE

Another trip to Tassie for our 3rd HELLFIRE CUP, and again we can not state how much we love this event! Again the HellFire crew have overcome hard personal times and still run an absolute awesome race. In the lead up to this years race Duncan and Sarah experienced something we pray never happens to anyone, Sarah was cleaned up by a 4wheel drive when out riding, resulting in very serious injuries including multiple and compound fractures of her leg. When we turned up to pick up our numbers at rego desk, who was there to give them to us, Sarah sitting up in her wheel chair, bubbly as always and full of spirit to see us, despite the fact she probably should have still been at home resting! I think its fair to say that everyone who has been to Hell Fire cup in the last 3 Years feels the same in regards to Ducan and Sarah, and this year that sentiment was voiced by many, we simply can express how awesome these two human beings are in words!

The Hell Fire and Mtb Trails crew have been busy since last year with a whole host of new trail sections. We again had a blast racing,  and were very pleased to pick up 2 stage wins and finish 2nd overall with our lack of race pegs.
