Thumb Condo' 750 cross country navigation rally - AUSTRALIA

If there is anyone in here from the international ADV rally scene who want's to see how we "do rally down under" - Aussie style; then check this link out to a thread in the Oz ADV forum on the 2014 Condobolin 750 rally. which is running as we speak.

http://advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=935768&page=34 (action photo's from the rally start on page 34 of the thread)

The Condo 750 is a two day, cross country navigation rally, run under similar rules to the FIM sanctioned Australasian Safari Rally, and after that event - Condo is the biggest/most well attended navigation/cross country rally competition in Oz. Many of Australia's top MOTO (and auto)competitors use the Condo 750 as warm up/preparation/form guide to the Safari each year.

The Condo 750 has existed since 1988 and runs each year in the small central NSW rural community of Condobolin - who much like the Bolivians that adopted DAKAR this year - all get right behind the event over the three to four days the event participants are in town.

Unfortunately the Condo 750 budget does not extend to live tracking or direct link timing/updates, so we are left with the option of following on the website for result updates and the various facebook updates for tidbits of information and the occassional photo.

I have the mobile # to a couple of folks on the ground there in central New South Wales - Australia, so i will see if I can text them a message, after I have finished mowing the lawn in Sweden...

Sylvias "provisional" (unofficial) - results...


When all else fails... text 'em!

TEXT:
Hows trix in condo Ross...?! ;)
Exellent thanx Troy. Just sitting in the Condo' pub waiting for my steak.
Tuff life of a moto journo... eh?
My guess is Todd, Jake, Rod, Shane. Not sure if results posted just yet...
Okay... we'll call them -sylvia's provisional results - then eh? :)
Yeah... I'll give you a call. Hang a sec.

PHONE CALL:

Hello... Troy Carpente...

G'day Troy... it's Ross. I'm in the Condo pub... can you hear the music, hang on I'll put the phone to the speaker (sounds of distorted slim dusty or something in background)... ya' know you're in Condo' mate!

ha-ha, good one mate... are you in the "red Dog" (saloon*)
*back bar of the Condobolin hotel.

Yeah mate, it's goin' off... probably the same down the street at the royal or up at the Railway (hotels) though... the whole town gets behind it!

Yep... that's the great thing about Condo'... the people that get behind and support it... great for a small place like that. How'd the boy's do today.

Well Rod (Fagotter #3 Yamaha WRF) led out (after drawing start pos #1 from the hat) bit od a disadvantage... Todd (Smith #2 Honda GHR) caught him after about 20 k's, and Rod then latched onto his rear fender... Jake (Smith #1 GHR Honda) latched onto them both a bit after that, and they made a freight train the rest of the way to the lunch pit. opening and closing gates for each other - real fast - just good fun. They are all real good mates and awesome riders - they were havin a blast!

Yeah, that the thing - the cameraderie/mateship of the top Aussie riders has always been a distinguishing thing eh. race hard but look out for each other - always lot's of respect there... a band of brothers for sure.

Yeah mate, and all top blokes... really proud to call them all friends of mine... anyway Rod ran out of gas just before the lunchstop at vermot Hill. LITERALLY only a kilometer... He had to lay her on the side to get the last of the fuel in... dropped a couple of minutes - but he made it!

So the lunch service is at vermot hill tennis and CWA hall?

Yeah, all the locals have turned out - you know the deal?

Yeah... say hi to some people for me, if you bump into them...

Okay, was with Paul (Sinders) Sinderberry (former OZ Safari and Condo legend) a bit earlier, and Bruce Broad (former winner) is having a drive (auto) this year...

Give them a smack up the back for me, tell Broady not to take out too many gateposts...

He's already been into a couple fences this morning I heard... ... anyway - back to the after lunch action:
Todd led off from Jake and then Rod... Rod's roadbook roller packed it in 5 minutes after the stage start (a fuse or wiring or something) so he had to navigate by hand rolling the book and following tracks most of the afternoon... but he is faaast. Maybe even a bit quicker than Smithy's x 2 at the moment... but they know the country here so well. was a great duel this arvo in any case...

Good stuff Ross... what's the plan tonight?

Well, I'll finish up here... head over to HQ at the show ground to check results, have a beer with some of the boys... take a few pic's. The wifi here is overtaxed to the max, what with 300 or so people all trying to get on at once. I haven't posted too much on ADV, as I also have some magazine jobs I have to prioritize... so I'll do me best, if there is anything you wonder... just text or call me!

Cheer mate...

(end call)


So there you have it - in field rally reporting... Condo' Style!
