A return to the Wild Side

After a year off in 2007, the Wildside returns to the race calendar from January 19-22, 2008. Entries for this Australian stage race open on July 1.

The race will feature seven stages over 200km and 4 days, from Cradle Mountain to Strahan on Tasmania's rugged and wild west coast. The course will follow much the same route as previous years with some minor variations. AUS$7,000 are on the line, with $1,500 to the fastest man and woman.

Rumor has it that Sid Taberlay is keen to avenge his loss to Chris Jongewaard in the 2006 event which ended his perfect run of victories in the event. Jongewaard has had the edge on Taberlay in recent events, but there is no doubt that Taberlay will be very hard to beat on his home turf come January.

Full event details are available at, with entries being accepted beginning July 1.
