Krikke Boys Ride
Support Our Ride to Conquer Cancer™
Welcome to the support page of the Krikke Boys Ride 2018.
For the last four years, the driver of 360 sprintcar #64, Paul Peet has completed the MACA Ride to Conquer Cancer®, which is a 200km cycling journey from Perth to Mandurah return in mid-October every year, benefiting Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. It is challenging in a number of ways, but with a bike, a helmet and your generosity, a real impact has been made on the fight to conquer cancer!
This year, being Paul's fifth RTCC, he was keen to raise the bar and get the speedway community involved in supporting this great cause. As we all know we have lost some great people from our speedway community over the years. In June 2016 at the age of 46, we lost one of the sport's true gentleman in Shane Krikke. Shane lost his 18-year battle with cancer, leaving a legacy in Australian motorsport that few will ever top. From sprintcar racing, to being the owner and manager of one of the most successful motorsport teams in Australian Sprintcar history, Shane Krikke was a household name in the south-west. He played a big part in Bunbury's business and community life, often offering his time to charities, and he was known for playing a major role in bringing the best motoring entertainment to the region.
When Paul first started making whispers about this year riding from Perth to Bunbury on the Friday prior to the 2018 Krikke Boys Race, Shane's daughter Taylor Krikke was the first person to throw her support behind the challenge. Taylor's first call was to her uncle Ryan (Shane's brother), who was extremely enthusiastic and jumped straight on board as one of the riders. We now currently have three riders committed to the ride, with one of the sport's best showing considerable interest (stay tuned).
We encourage you to contribute to this history-making event with a donation. Funds raised in the ride will go immediately to Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research. The world-leading doctors, researchers, scientists and clinicians at the Perkins use these funds to support cancer research, acquire new equipment and facilities, and retain experts to lead this vital work. No amount is too small.
We thank you in advance for your generous gift.
