The 2017 event will start in Albany, WA on 2 September 2017. We're racing to the rock again in 2017, but this time from Albany, WA. More news to come... Maybe not much. An entry process was reluctantly put in place. It was necessary addition to protect prospective entrants from themselves. We don't know whether this event will run in 2018.
The mostly off-road route covers some rugged, remote country in the Australian outback. Different to a lot of bike-packing adventures, this is not a "yeah two bottles will be fine" sort of a ride. This is a genuinely tough event in the age of countless events pretending to be tough. We strongly encourage you not to enter. Please enter some other event.
