2013 flinders ranges outback epic

This event was mail to me by another cycling mate. He seems keen but is somewhat pre-occupied with tri-athalon at the moment (yes, we do still talk)

I mentioned it to JK since he has ridden part of the Mawson Trail and he’s keen.

Is there anyone else that might be interested.


From what I understanding this is the first time that’s the event has been run.
It’s a MTBA sanctioned event and an addition fee is required for non-MTBA members.
Entry fees include Flinders Ranges National park access and Flinders Ranges by bike access.

I’m considering the 109k on my CX bike…

…go for a ride today with at least a 2 or 3 dozen or so small hill repeats. add dust. add mothertruckin’ teeth rattlingly huge corrugations at bottom of every hill. repeat for 6 hours. Oh, and dinosaur juice is about 2.00 a litre up there too.
gee, sounds like fun.

hmm, not sure if I’d want to do that on the cross bike, need some suspension
