Dakar Bikes Set To Rumble In The Adelaide Hills

Posted:

The picturesque town of Birdwood is the home to the National Motor Museum, which will become the centre of attention on Tuesday morning, March 17 and everyone is invited and welcome.

The scene will be set when Charley Boorman of Long Way Round fame, in partnership with Compass Expeditions, ride into the museum‰Ûªs carpark a week into their 10-day Sydney-to-the-Outback Tour, where they‰Ûªll be met by motorcycling royalty.

On hand to greet them will be: Moto GP legend, Jerry Burgess; Andy Haydon (who was the first Australian to podium at Dakar Rally, with a third Outright in 1998 as a privateer); Toby Price (who, 17 years on, emulated Haydon‰Ûªs feat with a stunning third Outright in the 2015 event); Dave Schwarz (who was Andy Caldecott‰Ûªs Motorex KTM teammate in the 2005 Dakar); along with Andy‰Ûªs wife, Tracey Caldecott, and family.

Holden On Tight‰Ûªs Rosco Holden, known for staging special motorcycle events, made initial contact with Boorman at last year‰Ûªs Phillip Island Moto GP and, after learning that he was heading to the National Motor Musuem, hatched a plan.

‰ÛÏSeeing as this fantastic museum is now home to Dave‰Ûªs and Andy‰Ûªs Dakar bikes,‰Û
