Oakdale MCC hosted a fundraiser for injured Australian rider, Daniel McCoy.
Oakdale MCC hosted a fundraiser for injured Australian rider, Daniel McCoy, and the response from the wider motorcycle community was huge. Over 2000 people turned up throughout the day to show their support for McCoy, with lines of cars stretching over one kilometer from the club’s entrance in both directions.
Robbie Maddison, Glenn Kearney and Jay and Ryan Marmont were just a few of the big names that showed up to support McCoy, with each rider donating items of memorabilia for auction and raffle.
The auction included one-of-a-kind jerseys belonging to motocross, supercross and off-road champions, including Ryan Villopoto’s jersey from his first 250 AMA Supercross Championship, Vintage Dan McCoy jerseys, Chad Reed’s Australian Supercross Jersey and Toby Price’s #1 jersey. Arguably the biggest ticket of the day was a genuine Red Bull helmet signed by Robbie Maddison. In total over 80 pieces of memorabilia were donated by generous members of the dirt bike community.
The day was a huge success and over $30,000 was raised.
McCoy seriously injured his back competing in the UK Arenacross series and has since had surgery to relocate two broken vertebrae and is now on the road to recovery. Read more here.
