About the Panther Trophy
Early on a brisk Sunday morning in the carpark at The Lakes Roadhouse, Paul Bevis discovered a carved, wooden statuette in the boot of a second-hand car he had bought a day or so previously: a real trophy!
There was a good crowd at the MTB event and we thought there was a need to recognise the skill and effort of the winner that day.
And, so the “Panther” was born. She has had the addition of a prosthetic medal and a good, solid jarrah plinth since she joined us and the course has moved to its permanent home of Lake Leschenaultia.
She’s loved by some and viewed somewhat ambivalently by others but is an indisputable part of ATTA’s tradition.
About the course
One of our original MTB TT courses which is currently still the home of the Panther Trophy event, our last remaining MTB TT. This course has been permanently signed although in a form somewhat modified from the original versions we rode. Still it’s a good, non-technical ride in a rather beautiful bit of local bush. Follow the signs from Chidlow; only a couple of km. On entering the park, follow the road around to the right to a gazebo just past the Trailhead.
