We finally made it to the area we most wanted to spend time, Esperance sand dunes!!

The next Farm Jam is coming up soon, February 25 will see the annual event go down and we can't wait to get over to New Zealand for it!

It is only one week away from the Public Opening of the new Queensland Moto Park (Wyaralong) and it almost feels like a blur! We have our official opening this weekend and riding to the public kicks off on Tuesday.

17th October 2011 Australias newest trail bike park, the Queensland Moto Park at Wyaralong in South East Queensland is edging closer to completion of Stage 1 and will be officially opened by the Queensland Premier, Anna Bligh on 18 December 2011.

Up until the nineth day, we were only riding either in the morning or afternoon. That all changed when we tried to fit in a ride on Jacko's competition course, then the jumps in the forest and then pack up all of our gear and drive 4 hours to 'Deadwood' in Victoria to ride in the afternoon at one of Cam Sinclair's new riding spots! A big day, lots of driving and plenty of riding to be had.

The fourth day was pencilled in to be a work day - Cleaning all of our mud caked bikes, gear, van and trailer at the JDR KTM Racing Factory. And while Schuie did warn me it would be a full day, I didn't believe him until we arrived and started pulling everything out of the trailer to clean! ... Yeah.. everything!

Welcome to the first journal entry of the Freeride Road Trip, and as I type, we have just woken up from our first day of driving from Boonah to Coffs Harbour. After a nice and scenic365 kilometres of driving, we met up with Jake Bowen in Coffs and thenventured 'up the hill' to his new compound at Ulong where we would roll out the swags!

Starting today, Schuie and I will be making the most of what Australia has to offer when we begin our Freeride Road Trip around this great country to find the best natural terrain jumps, untouched sand dunes and ride with some of Australia's best FMX stars along the way. And not to mention, while we are riding, you can win prizes!

Unfortunately last weekend's second FMX coaching clinic in Perth was rained out before a FMX bike was kicked over. But it didn't stop us from having some drama's of another nature when the Red Bull wings car found itself belly deep in some soft mud at the Valyside compound.
