Vic and I wish to announce that, after careful consideration, we have accepted a substantial purchase offer from ninemsn for Netrider. As part of the deal, both Vic and I will be joining the ninemsn team to help grow ninemsn's motorcycling franchise (incl. bikepoint.com.au, AMCN, Motorcycle Trader, and now Netrider) to the largest and dominant motorcycling media (both online and print) in Australia and Sth East Asia. Netrider has experienced sensational growth in NSW (as shown by membership figures, and the Sydney social/coffee/rides attendance numbers), with NSW also having the highest number of registered motorcycles and the largest growth percentage in recent years. In recognition of this, both Vic and I will be moving to Sydney in the near future to join the ninemsn team's motorcycling national offices, and to further expand the ninemsn motorcycling group nationwide. Future plans include the creation of a leading portal for motorcycling, to bring the ninemsn stable of rider offerrings under one umbrella. In discussions and agreement with ninemsn it was critical to Vic and I that Netrider, and its' model, will remain largely as is but with many more events and offerrings to members. A joint press release from Netrider and ninemsn will be issued to the media on Monday.
