    I wish I lived a little closer, that is one epic race. Looks like the boonies the whole way. The racers seem to be really spaced out, I would probably get lost. No one to follow. Did you compete in this? Thanks for for posting. Makes me want to MTB. Point to point racing is rare these days, everything I do is multiple lap racing.

    yes.

    Hi Miles

    Yes I did compete in the race. There was no way you could get lost, red arrows everywhere.
    the organization was wonderful.
    The Ibis Oz dealer dirt works turned up at the event and two terrific dirt works guys Pat and Mark washed everyones bikes at the end of EACH day PLUS lubed them. an amazing effort. they may have washed 1000 bikes over the week And they did it with a laugh and a smile. and no rider paid for the wash.
    Also two mechanics worked on bikes every night for no charge to the riders.
    Dinner every night was a laugh, dining with a great bunch of like minded mt. bikers.
    As you can see by the photos the race travelled over diverse landscape. I am a short A...S and some of the river crossings were up to my neck.

    It was a great event. A long flight for you guys, but if you come down to Australia for another reason then try and do this race in the next few years.

    here is the link.
