Think Rhino may have some outside assistance. He was moving at 70km/h on 24 Mar. Will definitely be a PED test for Rhino at the end of the race :)

I believe Rhino has pulled the pin, his knee has blown up.

Nick is crook.ย  Had a couple of re-starts but every time he did the dizziness and nausea would return so doubtful he will go any further.

Rhino's knee blew up on about day 3 or 4. He tried to nurse it for a few more days but ended up pulling the pin and getting a mate to head out and pick him up.ย  He has provided some great photos / video of participants as he made his way back to Melbourne.

French Dragon is also technically out.ย  Her ankle is buggered but she got a lift to Adelaide and is now looking to ride to Melbourne.ย  Interestingly she is doing the ride in sneakers and flat pedals!!

On the 26th he did 968km at 128km/hr - that's pretty fast even in a carย

Route change now due to snow?๐Ÿ˜•

Apparently there is a road closed for repairs. Looks like a long detour..

https://www.facebook.com/groups/Indian-Pacific-Wheel-Ride-(Dot-Watchers)-1827536454226495/

The Tooma Road to Cabramurra is closed for repairs to a culvert. I'm waiting to hear if a bike can safely sneak through. Kate at the Cabramurra visitors centre will ring and find out for us...

Parks closed the road and Khancoban says there are dangerous trees and it's not safe, even for a bike. Detour via Elliott Road (the goat track up from the foot of Talbingo Reservoir is a prick of a climb that will make WTF look easy. Or the Alpine Way (and an extra serve of Monaro Highway). No good options here.
PS: It will take them about a week to clear it...

None of them are good options, especially when considering the weather front coming through
