Desert Edge Motorcycles has a dedicated race program specialising in desert racing. We have been involved with 20 of the past 21 years winners of Australia’s most gruelling desert race – The Finke Desert Race.
This years team includes:
Ryan Branford – Winner of the 2006 Finke and runner up in 2007 and 2008. Ryan is one of the most aggressive and exciting desert racers in the country and certainly a spectacle to watch! It ain’t over yet and look for Ryan to get that top spot back next year!
Peter Costello joins the team for 2008 and brings a world of enthusiasm and dedication to the race team. With some issues in the race Pete still managed his first top ten finish in the 2008 Finke. Pete is certainly one of the younger brigade who is intent on sneaking up on the establishment, enduro, motocross, desert racing, Pete is always competitive and pushing for a top spot.
Benny Brooks, with a third place outright in 2006 and many top ten finishers at Finke, Benny is a consistent and dedicated racer always gunning for a top place, Benny enjoys life and racing and is a great ambassador to the sport – always competitive, with another top ten finish in Finke for 2008.
Former Finke winner and Desert Edge Motorcycles dealer principle Michael Vroom still competes today with a view to keeping in touch with the race program and what it takes to have the best bikes and best preparation. 6th Outright in 2008 certainly surprised a few and shows he is still competitive!
Whats in store for 2009?
Desert Edge Race Team will be bigger, better and another step up in professionalism, stay tuned!
