Grafton To Inverell

It sure is turning out to be a weekend of big racing for local M1 riders - Rocky Club Championships, World Triathalon Championships and the annual Grafton to Inverell - the longest single stage road race in Australia.

IJ is making the trip to Grafton tomorrow in preparation for his second attempt at the gruelling 228 kilometre road race. This year has seen a record number of nominations for the 228k distance with 269 riders nominating. They must enjoy pain if you ask me!

Michael England will also be riding the Grafton to Inverell in the A grade division for his team Budget Forklifts.

Good luck guys.

Details of the event can be found on - and yes, that is a bit of a mouthful!!
