Terra Australis 2009 - Complete Results

Postby LeMatelot on Mon 6/Apr/09 10:11am

There is a single pdf document which has all stage and series results in it, but its a bit too big to attach here. You can download it from the Terra Australis Website in the update from 5 April or go direct to the Combo Results.

All my happy snaps of the event are in 7 albums (1 per day) here.

It was a fantastic experience, and if this event doesn't get 5 times the riders next year I'll be very surprised.
