Well the trip down from Trafalgar was fully worth it. What a fantastic story of dedication, commitment and Pig Headiness!
Well done Christophe you are a bloody champion. I'm still gob smacked by the story.
So many times I just wanted to jump through the screen to help him pick up his bike!
For those who missed out in Melbourne tonight make sure you get along to Hoyts Highpoint tomorrow night. You wont be sorry.

Hmmm. You've got me worried now. I paid, and have the transaction record on my bank statement, but I don't have a "ticket" with my name on it?? In what form did this "ticket" arrive? (emailed .pdf, in the snail mail hardcopy, etc??).
I have assumed they must have the names of people that have bought tickets and check us off as we go in. I did get a confirmation email from Info Shop of the purchase but that's long gone.

Thank you everyone :)

I think i heard someone say "see you tomorrow", the audience will be smaller tomorrow perhaps due to the location but for those that come i will tell a few stories during the Q&A session that should make your skin shrink!

Thanks again for all those great questions tonight, it is so good to share the real spirit of the race.

Tonight I just showed them a copy of the email that was on my iPhone and there was no problems. The email was from "tickets@infoshop.com.au"

Hey Jaybo,

I got two emails one from admin@infoshopcom.au with the order confirmation and then another from tickets@infoshopcom.au with tickets as a pdf attachment that you need to print out and take with you for verification.

Enjoy the show
Cheers
Paul

Great night out to see Dream Racer. An inspiring tale Christophe Barriere-Varju of your solo effort to compete and complete the Dakar. Great night to meet up with other ADVRider.com members and share the experience. Took my daughters and a few others who enjoyed the event. Nice to see my girls dolled up rather than in their bike kit.

Saw it in Melbourne (Australia) last night.

Introduced by Christophe and he did a Q&A afterwards.

I took my Wife, 20yo son and 16yo daughter (None of whom ride). They all LOVED it.

Very inspirational.

If you have a chance, go see it!

It does have a liberal sprinkling of the F**K word throughout.

Adelaide: what is the best & most central venue? at Hoyts Norwood or Hoyts Tea Tree? It will depend if we can fill the other venues up.

Please share away...

Really looking forward to seeing the movie next Wednesday Night at Hoyts Norwood S.A.

Cheers, Sol

Thank you!

See you tonight for those coming to Highpoint.

Regarding the question about attending Perth, well...we have 3 showings on the same date (23rd) in Adelaide, Brisbane, and Perth...how can I clone myself?

Who wants me where? ah ah ah (now there might be a fight!!!)

Fantastic movie and and an awesome, inspiring story. Although now a proud Aussie, Christophe grew up very close to the origins of the Dakar legend in West Africa, so has a real connection to the event which became evident through the film. It is clear that nobody even gets to the start line without a battle against time, funding and bureaucracy and to finish the race against the elements and themselves is a huge pinnacle of achievement.

Anyone like to catch up? Any suggestions for a reasonable venue that side of the city?

Just posted it up on DBW and already some interest. How about a bar somewhere in the Bath Hotel just up the road??
