A trophy dedicated to the long lasting connection of the Gates Family and the Mildura Motorcycle Club Byren and Micky O will be going all out to take home the first Gates Cup.

The Gator is always near the pointy end of the field in any meeting around Olympic Park having won many local events, winning and placing in countless state championships and riding in many Australian Sidecar Championships coming fifth in the last Australian Championship decider at Mildura. Plus a career highlight coming 4th in the 2011 World Sidecar Championship with brother Devon in the chair.

Joining Gates and O’Loughlin in the field will be local Dads Army team in Neale Hancock and Brendan Johnson who have become one of the most improved sidecar outfits in Australia and Clint Mayes and Sean Coleby now after two seasons back in the business will be looking to put together a good performance in this new prestigious event.
