The annual Australian Postie Bike GP is held in Cessnock NSW has been Covid cancelled in a move that has been labbeled as ludicrous by fans.
There has not been a Covid Case in the Hunter in months and very few daily cases in NSW that can’t be traced and tracked.
It’s time to end the Covid cancel culture here in NSW and allow such events to take place, the risk of an outdoor event is low.
I understand this event does rely on local businesses to contribute to the event and times have been tough, but who is going to sponsor an event that usually brings 10,000 people to town when its restricted to just 500?
The APBGP released the following statement on their Facebook page which punters were less than impressed.
It is with great disappointment that the APBGP have had to make the decision to not go ahead with this years event.
With current restrictions for Motorcycle events it would not be possible to have spectators, as well as funding that would need to be donated to run the event would be a lot to ask our local community at such a tough time for businesses.We look forward to coming back bigger & better in 2021.
We would like to sincerely thank each and every person that has supported this event in the past years without the support from the community, riders & crew, officials & volunteers this event wouldn’t be possible and all continued support is appreciated greatly.
NSW has demonstrated that 40 thousand people can safely watch a game of Football without a single case emerging from the event in Sydney where cases still linger in low numbers.
But here in Regional NSW where there not been a single case in months, and yet we can only have 500 people at the event.
What’s even more ridiculous is the Victorian border is likely to open before large regional events can go ahead.
End the madness crippling our regional towns.
