24Hr course

I've gone through the 24hr site and cannot find a map of the intended course. Anyone know where or if there is a map for this year's event. I was able to plan some viewing spots last year and would like to do the same again so as to see all i can with my available time.

The official program will have a detailed map with all the controls listed.

You can get it on the day.

You'll struggle to find a map of the course before the day. Grab a program as soon as you get there as they run out every time. There's also a large map on the western wall of the 'start-line' shed. Make some notes and turn on the GPS.

Broke Back Mountain......

Just back from cutting up the sleepers, and they are soaked from all the rain. Now drying in the shed on racks - the things we do! But I'll be warm.

Was going to take the Tenere out for a spin this afternoon but not so sure now.....it's bloody wet out there.

Picked up my new Tenere on Friday night, rode it home in the storm, been watching the radars all day hoping for a bit of sun... Took some pics instead

Had mine out in the mud of the Barossa today, the new Dunlop 908RR on the front doesn't seem to get on too well with wet clay though. Didn't drop it but had both stabilizers out at times.....now washed, dried and sleeping. Yours looks great OJJ.

After riding the TTR250 in the dirt and mud for a while I got used to throwing it around like my mountain bikes. After riding the big Tenere on the drenched blacktop Friday arvo I'm shitscared about attacking mud just yet. The weight difference is huge. Bare in mind I've only had my L's since November, I'm still keen though to get out on the trails ASAP......

Next Saturday if anyone is keen
