Australia Ep.9: Cerimonial Start

Finally it’s almost time to start our engines! This morning was honoured to be a guest at the press conference together with champions like Cyril Despres, Annie Seel and Craig Lowndes and thanks to my friend Hansy from www.marathonrally.com and Idario Cafè from Brazil i manage to get some fantastic pictures!!! After the press conference had a rider’s briefing where the 2012 edition dates have also been announced (22-29 of September) and then headed to the ceremonial start, it was really nice and got the chance to speak to a lot of people. We were really treated as superstars and felt great. Now i’m off to bed because tomorrow morning at 6 am we have to drive up to Geraldton and have the prologue in the evening. Enjoy the photos :)
