The event is a two day roadbook navigation event for “Adventure Style” motorcycles over 140kg. The roadbook is has been especially created for the event and is the same format and style as the “Adventure Cannonball” rideouts.
Riders will be expected to navigate the course using the roadbook. Each day comprises of a course which is in excess of 250km with a large percentage of the going being hard base gravel tracks and fire roads within the forests.
