"WAUCHOPE born and bred" enduro bike racer Kye Anderson is hoping the community will get behind his plan to compete overseas by turning up to race or enjoy watching a motorcycle "fun day fund-raiser" this weekend.
Kye, 23, is training hard for the 2013 International Six Days Enduro event in Italy later this year and is seeking support to finance the trip and competition.
The Fun Day is being held by the Hastings Valley Motorcycle Club on Sunday, August 4, with the gates opening at 7am.
Two practice motocross sessions will be held on the day, followed by two races with prizes for the winners, Kye says.
There will also be a raffle with more than 30 prizes and a sausage sizzle.
Anyone is welcome to contact the club and come along and compete, he says.
Kye rides a Husaberg 450 bike, which is worth around $13,000, and has been competing in NSW and national off road championships since 2008.
While he hasn't won a championship title yet, Kye says he is progressing and believes he will get to the top one day - by applying lots of hard work, persistence and dedication.
More than 700 riders from around the world will be competing in the International Six Days Enduro, Kye says, and now that he has applied and been accepted as a competitor he says he would be kicking himself if he missed out on this opportunity.
