Day 3, after passing the salt lakes, looks like it heads up K1 -in the Swale, northerly, so with any luck a tail wind to push you home...while a long day, could be fast! If there is a head wind across the salt lakes - better pair up and ride peloton!!!
Riding north to the lone gum last year...

My strategy was lots of training - in Cairns, (mostly winter 26-29deg) wearing multiple layers, including...
Friend of mine sells Merida, absolutely raves about his. He's a middle aged downhiller who has a back injury and its got him back into his favourite riding. It gets him up the climbs to bomb back down.
I've ridden a 140mm one (Merida) and a chipped Levo. I think the Levo was maybe a bit more...

Well...back in 2012 I was all over this thread trying to get my then 6 year old off an 18 BMX and onto something she might have ridden with me. I managed to get her one of the last Avanti Aggressor 24 XC bikes. She's now in High School, an accomplished Gymnast and training 16 hrs a week (soon...

Here is a promo video from the 2017 Simpson Desert Bike Challenge. Small crew of 11 riders this year covered 593kms from Purni Bore in South Oz to Birdsville in Qld over 9 stages in 4.5 days. Only 4 completed the entire course. (The others were swept on at least 1 stage)
Here is a promo video being done by Eckart Altenkamp's sons who came along as his support crew and awesome videographers and photographers... (Eckart won the 2017 challenge).
Hope it might inspire a few for 2018!!!
