Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE) arrives in Cessnock
The Yamaha Australian Four Day Enduro (A4DE) is back for season 2018 and returning to the birthplace of Australian Enduro Cessnock, New South Wales.
Riders will battle it out in their respective classes E1, E2, E3, Womens, Masters and a new class for this year, Vintage. The challenge Trophy will be hotly contested throughout the four days (April 3-7) with state bragging rights on the line.
Cessnock is a city in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, located about 52km west of Newcastle and was the original host of the A4DE, with the first event taking place in 1978 after Australian went off to the 1977 International Six Day Enduro (ISDE) and had a horror run, not one of the Australian riders completed the race.
Not happy with this result, John Wall and the Cessnock Motorcycle Club came together and created the A4DE concept, an event that would prepare riders and support teams for the notoriously torrid ISDE.
The 1978 edition had over 125 riders entering A4DE and in 2018 the race has grown to over 350 riders. The torrid and tough conditions riders faced in 1978 have been promised to return by the Cessnock Motorcycle Club, with 8 separate Special Test Locations ready to test this year’s crop of riders.
