GENERAL INFORMATION:
Firstly, this event is all about supporting the local community of the Flinders Ranges, and fuel/alcohol/snacks/smokes/boxes & of water and other general supplies are all available from home base Angorichina Village.
The main 2 ways to get to the flinders are either through Clare, Jamestown way, or Port Wakefield, Port Augusta way.
Going via Clare is shorter in distance and a less boring drive but the Port Augusta route is more constant, fewer corners and higher speeds.
Angorichina Village is accessible from Hawker by going through either Parachilna or Wilpena. The Wilpena Road is picturesque but longer and you will encounter more native wildlife. The Parachilna way is spectacular in itself with the ranges off to your right. Stunning at sunset.
Arriving and checking in to the Event
As most people will be arriving on Wednesday, as you enter the Village you must stop and come to the check-in station at the shop entrance. There you will receive your rider pack, and goodie bag and be checked in. You will get information on where you will be camping, where the Dorms are, or where your Cabin is.
There are powered sites but first in best dressed.
If you arrive early or intend to stay after the event then extra fees will obviously apply and can be paid to the village directly at the front office.
Your hosts are Dave & Caroline Scicluna who have been supporting this event for some 14 years now and are both dirt bike riders themselves. Absolutely amazing people so please show them the highest respect.

RIDING SUBCATEGORIES
ADVENTURE RIDES 1 & 2
ADV GROUP 1 (A1)
You have been riding motorcycles for a long time especially Adventure bikes and dual sport bikes. You have probably done some big missions and know how to handle the big bikes in most conditions with ease. On group rides you are generally mid pack or up the front with the leaders or even host your own ADV rides. You have a bike capable of easily sitting on the speed limit of 110kph on dirt roads or tarmac. Minimum capacity of 250cc.
Minimum Fuel Capacity to take you 220klm
Your days will consist of longer rides. Some rides will be cruisy winding low speed dirt roads and others will be rougher 4×4 tracks and station tracks. There will be many rocky loose sections and there will be dry riverbed crossings consisting of deep loose sand.
You will be up to 200klm away from home base at some stages and are confident in keeping it all together in a remote area situation.
Your ride leaders are some of the most experienced riders in the Flinders Rages and will keep you as safe as can be. There will be regular photo stops and rest breaks and they will not only guide you safely around the magnificent ranges but challenge you to get the most out of your experience at the same time.
This is REMOTE riding in a group environment at its best. You have the security of an experienced lead and the wealth of knowledge from the group you are riding with. You will need to 100% know and adhere to the CORNER MAN SYSTEM.
THE CORNER MAN SYSTEM 
If you are the rider behind the leader, you stop on a corner, point in the direction the lead rider has gone and let all the other riders through until you see the sweep rider. The sweep rider will wave you on and you can go. Sweeps riders will generally be a shared responsibility between all riders swapping in different sections unless otherwise directed.
Minimum Fuel Capacity to take you 220klm
RIDING GEAR:
Expect daytime temperatures of somewhere between 10 and 20 degrees. Mornings will be crisp so if you set off at 8am looking like the Michelin Man and by 10am you are cooking, you need somewhere to pack all that extra warm gear you are in. Its sometimes better to freeze in the morning and be comfortable for the rest of the ride.
Recommended:
⦁ Armoured, water resistant Jacket and pants with removable inner lining
⦁ Motocross boots or ADV Boots
⦁ Knee braces if available or some form of protection
⦁ Light, armoured Motocross Gloves rather than thick travel gloves
⦁ Neck warmer, can be used as a mask if needed in a shop
⦁ UHF/walkie talkie or Helmet Communication if you have one
⦁ Wallet, Phone, Camera etc.
What to pack:
⦁ Water – 3l camel pack recommended or 2l as a minimum
⦁ Tools – basic spanners, sockets, screw drivers in case of break down
⦁ Cable Ties – If you have a horizontal rest and bits break, they can be re-attached with cable ties
⦁ Puncture Repair kit – Levers, patches and a tube. Generally, a front tube will fit in the rear and get you home without issues.
⦁ Hand pump, Co2 or electric pump
ADVANCED ADVENTURE GROUP
You are a very experienced big bore/dualsport/ADV rider and if you wanted to you could bash bars with the enduro guys on your 1200GSA, T7, DRZ400, XR650R or KTM690 no problems. You can ride just about any terrain thrown at you and know that you will be riding mainly the same tracks as the enduro guys but on a proper dual sport bike. Rocks, rivers, ruts, deep sand, bull dust and salt lakes get you excited especially when they are 600klm away from major civilisation!
You can prepare, pace yourself and maintain your composure in these remote area situations and have the knowledge and know how to fix a damaged bike in most cases.
Your ride leaders are some of the most experienced riders in the Flinders Rages and will keep you as safe as can be. There will be regular photo stops and rest breaks and they will not only guide you safely around the magnificent ranges but challenge you to get the most out of your experience at the same time.
