South Australian, Shane Diener, returns to the event after finishing an impressive third place in 2013 and hoping to improve even more in this years‰Ûª race. Diener has proven to be as fast as anyone in previous Safari‰Ûªs and hopes that a clear run will again have him in podium contention when the event draws to a close.

‰ÛÏI feel like we are as prepared as we can be and I‰Ûªm ready for what always is a tough week in the saddle." Diener said. "It‰Ûªs a demanding week on everyone at the event and success here really is a team effort.

"Working with Rodney is awesome and together we share our knowledge and now with the extra support from Active8 Yamaha, this year‰Ûªs race should be a good one for both of us.‰Û
