Brodie and Nicholas Waters are adventurous brothers and Sunraysia’s top-level motorcycle riders.
It's fair to say that racing is in their family’s blood, as their older brother Josh, too is a multiple time Australian Superbike Champion.
In 2021 both Nicholas and Brodie finished well inside the top 10 of the Finke Dessert Race.
They have just completed the long trek to Alice Springs for the 2022 Finke Desert Race which is a very fast track of approx. 240ks each way with an overnight stay in the township of Finke. They were both favourites in this gruelling race, against the world's top motorcycle riders.
Brodie had a brilliant run - coming in fourth position. Unfortunately, Nicholas however, was not so good this year, crashing heavily at approx. the 80k mark of the track putting himself and bike out.
His internal injuries were too severe to continue, so he was brought back to the start line where Julie (his mum) took him to hospital.
He is now told to rest and getting further updated scans & tests to follow his healing process.
Both boys have been racing dirt bikes since they were 4yrs old competitively and have spent literally 3 weekends out of 4 on the road travelling this country to follow the race events until their teenage years.
Both over the years have experienced huge success with multiple Australian titles as well as State titles in four states of Vic/NSW/QLD/SA.
