I have just received confirmation that entries are in fact still open for TERRA AUSTRALIS, It runs from March 21st - 27th, this does fall into school & uni holidays for most & for you Elite boys out there, the pointy end of the field is looking a little light on due to Oceania's in NZ the weekend TERRA starts, with some decent cash on the line, 700km & approx 15,000m vertical of climbing all in the dirt, what more could you want!?
As mentioned in my previous post I'll be pairing up with the very much in form Phil Orr, (Ex elite XC racer & last years winner of the Vic Enduro Series), looks like We'll be going head to head with my ex BMC team mate Joel Donney(2007 U25 solo24hr Champ) who by all accounts will be riding for the TORQUE team with the very quick Steel Van Hoff, So should be game on :-)
Here I am having a laugh with one of the event organisers Iain, they are a great bunch of people who run this event & they really go the extra mile to ensure each every competitor has a great week, by the end you will feel like one of the family, don't get me wrong this is a challenging event on the bike, but rest assured plenty of laughs & good times shared off it.
So if you're up for a great week on & off the bike in the spectacular Victorian Highlands I highly recommend you check it out & get your Entry in.
Hope to see you there.
