Australia Ep.4: First day in Perth

My first day in Perth has gone, it’s been awesome, i’m so excited for the race! This morning i woke up at 10 am and went for a walk on the beach, and went to see a few shops close to the hotel (so many Billabong, Rip Curl shops!). I didn’t think there was going to be so much difference in temperature between day and night, this morning i had to wear a jacket and jeans whereas at midday i was wearing shorts. Today the weather has been very inconsistent, around lunch time it was hot and sunny and in the evening it rained hard a few times. I spent most of the day getting to know the team and making the last adjustments on the bikes. I’m really happy today because i got to know some very nice people full of passion for rallies and the chance to see the bike with which i will be racing, a standard Husaberg FE 450cc. I also put on my Onboard Graphics, finally took out of my luggage the Technomousse and instrumentation which were taking up too much space. Now i’m back in the hotel and relaxing on the sofà wathcin TV and eating chips 😛 Here are some photos of the day, hope you enjoy them!
