Todd and Jacob rode out of camp to the bivouac departure point just before 7.00am and the other riders were warming up their bikes shortly after. Thankfully, Stuart Bowen is up and about, walking normally on a bandaged foot and is a definite starter for the day. The rest of the GHR support vehicles began to head off to their various destinations at 7.20am. The start times have all been brought forward 30 minutes this morning, giving the competitors an earlier start on what will be a very long and potentially decisive day. Reportedly the course will be a more open, faster flowing pair of selective with a service in the morning at Agnew and a refuel at Nambi. The day’s bivouac will be in Laverton.
