When asked for more details, Kailub had this to say, "We have had a tremendous response to the raffle so far and I'm so happy to be able to make this happen and give a lucky Off-road enthusiast out there the once in a lifetime opportunity to win this full factory KTM 150XC race machine. I already scored 2nd Overall on this bike at the previous GNCC, now I'm planning on going one step better and winning the whole thing this weekend! By then the bike will only have 6-7 hours on the clock and essentially will still be brand new. This 150XC not only looks rad, but it is an absolute weapon and is such a blast to roost around on - whoever wins this bike is in for a real treat!"

Meanwhile Off-road racing legend, and owner of the DirtWise Riding schools and "Ready to Race" bike rental program, Shane Watts is stoked to be involved with this groundbreaking fundraising effort, saying, "This whole raffle touches on all of the things we like to focus on here not only here with the DirtWise program, but also personally. It's great of Kailub, who purchased this raffle bike and factory suspension himself, to donate some of the money raised to his good mate, and our injured DirtWise team racer, Rory Mead - that really shows what kind of a genuine, thoughtful, and compassionate person he is. I'm a small bore rider so I can't wait to see him let this 150 fly around the GNCC race track this weekend and get that victory. I know that I wish I had a chance to twist the throttle on that bad boy."

Rory Mead was blown away with the continued generosity he's receiving from the Off-road community following his devastating spinal injury at Rd. 3 of the GNCC series earlier in 2014. "I am so grateful for the support that I continue to receive - it just spurs me on every time I'm in doing rehab to push myself as far as possible to maximize my recovery. I'm slowly making improvements and progress, and I'm hopeful of being able to walk again one day, but it's still going to be a long and difficult journey to get there."
