We’re happy to hear that (in our eyes) the most special event on the Aussie calendar, The Willo, will continue to run each year. Rocky Trail Entertainment have taken it on and it will live on in James’s name, even though his Aunty Meg will step back from race director duties.
Meg has stated:
“We just wanted to do something to continue his energy and spirit, so we started this event. It’s been quite a lot of work, but I really enjoyed it – I would like to step back from the organising activities and I really look forward to continue being a part of the race as a patron and rider. With Juliane and Martin and their team I found good people who will take this event into its next decade and keep James’ legacy going.”
And we’ll soon post some good news regarding the Willo Camp and some exciting developments there.
