Dust Hustle 2015

Road bikes, food trucks, Young Henrys. Not bad for a free Saturday at the raceway.

After a very successful 2014 Dust Hustle, a day of jubilation for fans of dirt, motorbikes and general tomfoolery, is returning to the Mick Doohan Raceway. This free Northgate event is premised on the simple idea that banged up road bikes are still good for something and that something is a day of bumbling, skidding Wacky Races-esque baboonery on a dirt track to entertain the crowds.

Bikes that would never be allowed on the road will proudly race around a dirt track with guaranteed hilarious results. There are other classes too, for vintage and turbo-charged bikes so expect a variety of racing techniques from 'Just trying to place in Moo Moo Farm' to 'If I don’t win Rainbow Road I will drive into space, goddammit'.


Parking and entry for spectators is free (free!) and once inside, you’ll find the place decked out with gourmet food trucks. Expert booze wizards from Sydney brewery Young Henrys will be there keeping the beer kegs tapped and flowing. Racing runs from 10am to 4pm, but stick around because there's an afterparty at the track until 9pm.

Here's what went down last year:
