Its on again, SBS coverage started today for the first stage. 6.00pm each night.
Argentina/Chile looks to be just as tough.
Two Aussie bike entrants found in the starters listing. So far David Schwartz is in 16th standing after Stage 2, and Simon Pavey 88th.

Note also the other bikes entered amongst the plethora of KTM and Yamaha bikes, the odd Beta and Sherco. Funnily the Chinese riders and on their Jincheng machines dont seemed to have made it past the first stage.

After day (stage) 8
Schwarz is 21st
Pavey is 56th
The other guy, Christophe, is still in the 80's

Bruce Garland & Harry Suzuki are a brilliant 16th in the car section.

Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Stage 9 results:
33 040 SCHWARZ (AUS) KTM 07:50:39 01:24:06
34 126 PAVEY (AUS) BMW 07:51:19 01:24:46


Must have been tough, or a problem grouped the aussies together to help one or the other out? And Christophe dropped out, and to have come so far.

30 362 GARLAND (AUS)
SUZUKI (AUS) ISUZU 07:57:45 02:01:37
