It was only a seven-kilometre stage but it still challenged competitors and set the scene for Australasian Safari 2013.

Lee Stephens opened up the bike category of this years event with the fastest time in the prologue stage for this year Australasian Safari and will lead out defending champion Jake Smith and his brother Todd.

Stephens, who has a free entry into Safari from winning the Safari Challenge at the Condo 750 off-road rally this year, was more than happy with the time he set as he enters the Safari for the first time on his inaugural trip to Western Australia

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm on a new enduro bike and still getting used to it." Stephens stated. "My goal is to finish, and hopefully finish in a reasonable place."


Last year‰Ûªs moto winner Jake Smith said it was all good for him out there yesterday.

‰ÛÏI‰Ûªm looking forward to this week, I‰Ûªm aiming to win, I don't come to Safari to come second,‰Û
