WHAT’S THE DEAL?
TWELVE?! You’ve done this twelve times!!! The wildest event on the Dust Hustle™ calendar, Dust Hustle 12: QLD Moto Park is “The Riders’ Event” for 2022. As per usual 3 tracks will be spread across the epic QMP venue, 2 of which are always new to QMP specifically for the Dust Hustle event. Test your enthusiasm for the inappropriate and we’ll wrap it all up with gourmet food trucks, trade stalls, great coffee and a sweet trackside bar.
TELL ME MORE
DH12 is a big-old one night moto campout with just the right amount of good food and great drinks. Save the ‘big show’ and trade alley for DH13, we’re getting back to basics and combining the best the Dust Hustle™ has to offer.
Don’t be fooled though, this isn’t some backyard bush bash! The tracks are Motorcycling Australia certified for professional level racing. We’ll just be grooming them a little smoother than your usual motocross track and sprinkling on a ton of extra fun.
WHO’S GETTING INVOLVED?
We’re going to round up 240 of the most legendary muppets to join us for this scramble shamble. It will be groomed dirt and grass surfaces, so even the most inexperienced riders will feel comfortable mixing it up.

1. “THE HOLLYWOOD HILLBILLY” NATURAL TERRAIN MX TRACK
This one’s your big boy! The ‘Hollywood’ makes use of the popular Natural Terrain motocross track at QMP but with the jumps rounded off so no one is crushed by a Harley. Elevation changes, ripe loam soil and big berms make this one radical track you won’t want to get off!
2. “THE DECISION FAKER” INAPPROPRIATE ENDURO
We’re changing this one up a little for 2022! The little favourite flat track area stays and we’re adding an extended section along the creek to make this a small but stupidly fun track. Mini table tops and wrong turns, but just fake it til’ you make it and watch out for merging traffic!
3. “THE MOTO MOWERS” FLAT GRASS TRACK
Possibly the riders pick! A little extension on last years layout, but it’s still an epic grass track with corners for flopping and a big straight for chopping! Reducing radius bends and tight turns will give out a few grass stains as we clipper this course faster than Jim’s mower on race juice.
THE CLASSES: DH12
1. SMALL BIKE BURNERS
This group is open to any clutchless bikes PLUS other small bikes WITH clutches under 150cc. Polish the Postie bike, get the Grom’s out or grab a gumtree delivery scooter because the small bore battle just got interesting! No 2-stroke race bikes over 85cc, they can get f’ed to the Enduro & MX class.
2. RISKY ROAD BIKES
Any bike that can be road registered, your daily ride, a weekend tarmac warrior or hooligan machine. Big adventure bikes to low slung hardtails, you never know where the skills you pick up here will help you. Plus it’s probably the most inappropriate, so possibly the most fun and impressive category!
3. OLD MATES
Roll out the vintage and classic steeds; this pre 1990 only class is open to anything old and awesome. An eclectic mix of desert sleds and pan heads can opt to take part in this jalopy jive category. So tear the tarp off the old farm bike or marketplace a mature moto into your garage for this one!
4. ENDURO & MX
A class for those who already have a dirt squirter and like to get their ‘plumbs in the crumbs’. We’ll expect some interesting outfits in this group, just for some extra ‘spice’ on the mainstream machines. Non-registered bikes are accepted, with no limit on engine size. Open to any Enduro or MX bikes, old and new.
