Riley Graham Wins 24Hour Torture Test
Yamaha WR450F mounted, Riley Graham, has won the 2018 24Hour Trail at Kapunda, South Australia, in a true test of man and machine.

In near perfect, yet cold winter conditions, Graham went one step better than his 2017 effort to take victory in 2018. It was a comprehensive victory for Graham who lead the event from start to finish and win by a comfortable margin over his nearest rivals.

Competitors star at 11am from the Kapunda Harness club and return the following day after running through a series of checkpoints throughout the event. In the past, it has proven to be one of the most difficult events as the attrition rate is high with less than 50% of the field finishing during some of the more challenging years. In 2018, 72 bikes made it to the finish line.

For riders, the 24hour slog is physically taxing as they deal with lack of sleep, the elements as well as racing through the night in dark and isolated areas. For the bikes, its non-stop 24 hours of abuse and only the strong survive and a real testament to the bikes that make it to the finish. In 2018, five of the top 10 bikes across the finish line were Yamaha WR450Fs .

‰ÛÏI was pretty determined to get a win this year after coming so close last year,‰Û
