The rules are simple. You have 14 days to get to the Port Augusta City sign. You can ride alone, together, whatever you do, we don’t care, just ride in a single lane. Stop at red lights, but we don’t think there are any traffic lights. Do not ride at night. Find yourself a cozy spot somewhere in the middle of the outback, sing songs with some stars or fellow racers or something like that. It will be okay.
This is a hot race. A very hot race. This is not a race for cool riders. There are no fans. There are no crews. No cameramen. No photographers. There is no PR. There is no website. There is no official timing. There are no medals to win.
You will be dirty, stinky, bad looking, sore, unshaved – probably.
There is nobody or nothing there to make you a cool rider. The coolest thing is sharing your drink and riding your bike.
