Sunday 31st May - 12th Of June: Sunday was a great day, you can't beat getting out for a ride on your Birthday! The day was spent at Gillman in SA putting in as many laps as I could fit in during the afternoon, bike felt great and I felt great so things were looking good.

We also received a huge package from the great people over at Link International, including Motul 7100 10W 40 oil for our Suzuki RM-Z450, along with a host of Motul lubricants and cleaning products.

We also took hold of two sets of the Pirelli MX32 Mid Soft Tyres. They are the same tyres we ran at Hattah in 2013, so we know we are onto a good thing there.

Unfortunatley that is all that happened in week five, like a good portion of the field, ride time between work, family life and travel is sometimes hard to come by and our Suzuki has been parked in the shed since that Sunday, yep nearly two weeks ago right now.
We are ready to hit the track thanks to Link International and a host of Pirelli and Motul products.
Not all was lost however last week, as we were lucky enough to head to Alice Springs for the 2015 Finke Desert Race spending the weekend working along side the guys from the Dirt Action and Trail Rider Mags.

While it would have been great being out on track and racing this Icon event in it's 40th year, watching the nations best Off-Road racers hold it pinned over some gnarly dry sandy terrain was nearly as good as riding.

This weekend is looking much better, though includes another long road trip to Ceduna in South Aus for the second round of the 2015 Peter Stevens South Australian Motocross Championships.

We will sneak in a little ride on Saturday as we drive across, then will get plenty of sand practice in at the Ceduna track which is made up primarily of beach sand and shell grit!
Looking forward to running the new Fox FLEXAIR racewear for the first time this weekend
It will also be our first opportunity to race in our all new Fox FLEXAIR Racewear!

With a few more parts on their way and a few more rocking up this week, Monday until the big race itself, everything we do to the bike and every time we ride will be focused 100% around the 2015 Hattah desert race.
