The Southern Crossing – Postponed till 2012
The Greatest Aussie Adventure in Recent Times.
Three Motorbikes will cross Australia in a straight line with NO support.
Three everyday Aussie’s will undertake a challenge of a lifetime. They will attempt to cross the harshest terrain in Australia, and possibly the most unforgiving environment in the world, unassisted.
Facing incredible challenges and unknown dangers, these three adventurers leave fear behind to live out a two wheel dream to cross Australia in virtually a straight line. They are attempting a world first. Over 98% of the terrain is dirt, sand, rock and mud and over 1,500 massive sand hills in the Simpson Desert must be conquered… this will be an incredible adventure of true Australian spirit and unrivalled determination.
Travelling across Australia from the most Eastern mainland point to the most Western, Leeroy, Jon and Geordie will leave Cape Byron (Byron Bay) 2012 and travel in virtually a straight line along the 26th parallel to Steep Point in Western Australia.
Followed only by the production crew, who will also need to endure these harsh Australian conditions, the boys must fend for themselves with no outside help… surviving with only the supplies they can carry on their bikes!
Leroy, Geordie and Jon will do battle with the unpredictable weather, whilst enjoying some of the most spectacular landscapes in the world and meeting unique locals and indigenous communities on their journey. Australian celebrities and fellow bikes enthusiasts, will join the team on trip stop points to encourage and cheer them on their way. Join the boys on their epic adventure… as they take on ‘The Southern Crossing’.
This is the TRUE Aussie adventure that Outbacknow is very proud to be supporting
