A star-studded field has taken shape for the 2019 Manjimup 15,000 that will be staged at the Cosy Creek circuit in Western Australia this weekend.

It was revealed earlier this month that CDR Yamaha Monster Energy duo Kirk Gibbs and Luke Clout will attend the prestigious event, which will see Gibbs attempt to claim a record-matching fourth 15,000 crown currently set by his team owner Craig Dack and former team manager Jay Marmont.

Event organisers have since confirmed Raceline KTM Thor’s Hayden Mellross will strengthen the line-up, joined by MXD points leader and teammate Regan Duffy – who’ll pilot a 450 SX-F – and fellow Western Australian Kyle Webster (Penrite Pirelli CRF Honda Racing), who’ll also step up to a CRF450R premier class machine.

The international contingent will feature American duo Kyle Cunningham (Honda) and Adam Enticknap (Suzuki), while a list of Western Australian locals are entered as they endeavour to upset the visitors.

For the second year running, the Manjimup 15,000 will host a stop of the Australian Women’s Motocross Championship, the WA venue serving as round three of the series.
