Well, its the first year its being run and we have just over 50 ready to roll with a limit of around 150. Its looking good, lots of work been done on logistics, food and entertainment being out there in the desert - but should be one of those unique and memorable events. Its aimed at being a race as well as for those that just want a personal challenge in which you get to experience the indigenous culture and people as well as the true desert landscapes. One of the partners www.cycletours.com.au
runs cycle tours along the route during the year and finds that even novices can handle the road. The test of course - are you good enough to do the whole route in 11 days? Hope to see you along.
