Dimboola HPV ‘Expo’ this Sunday
Human Powered Vehicles will take to the roadway around the Dimboola Recreation Reserve this Sunday for the third annual Dimboola HPV Expo.

This Sunday, 4 August 2019, teams from across Victoria will be heading to the Dimboola Recreation Reserve to participate in the third annual Dimboola Human Powered Vehicle (HPV) Expo.

This event allows locals and visitors the chance to experience the emerging sport without travelling to Maryborough, Melbourne or South Australia. It also allows local region teams the opportunity to practice and demonstrate their skills at a closer venue.

This year’s event is attracting 8 teams, bringing 20 HPVs, with riders and support crews totalling around 150 people. Last year up to 800 spectators witnessed the excitement and supported the teams involved, and similar numbers are expected this year.

Hindmarsh Shire Council Mayor, Cr Ron Ismay said “Dimboola has been fortunate to secure the only event of this type in the west of Victoria, and this event has the potential to grow the sport and inspire more local schools and communities to become involved.

“The Dimboola Recreation Reserve is a perfect location for HPV events and we hope in future to develop this venue to be able to host official race events.”

For those who cannot attend, this year’s event will be ‘live-streamed’ to the Wimmera Mallee Tourism Facebook page, with the support of the Victorian Government Regional Events Innovation Fund. The action will be captured at up to four camera locations able to be viewed at the Wimmera Mallee Tourism Facebook page.

The six hour HPV ‘expo’ demonstration will start with a parade lap at 9:55 am and conclude at 4:00 pm.

Spectator entry is free, with car parking access via Park Street, Dimboola, and food and drinks will be available for purchase throughout the day.

Apart from the Park Street entrance, all vehicle entrances into the Recreation Reserve will be closed from early Sunday morning until after the event concludes late in the afternoon.

Preparation for the event will take place on Saturday 3 August 2019 so access to the Dimboola Recreation Reserve will also be restricted from Saturday afternoon.
