Good riding to all. What time's kick-off?

Is there a page available for "spectators" to view the progress of all of the entrants and read news updates?

Go hard, take lots of pics, and a big RR when you are done, have a blast.

Looking at those photos, Darren Young appears to be some sort of Bushranger. Eep! And Ken Allen looks like he eats babies for breakfast. Nice mugshots, guys.

El Ponkin is down

He is okay but has hit a car about 30 km north east of taylors arms. The bike is rooted . He is getting a lift to the taylors arms hotel and will spend the night there. On a brighter note the w.a boys are sitting on big red watching the sun go down.
