To set the record straight ....
Only the Senior Trophy and Women's Teams were MA funded,

The Jnr Trophy Team was Self Funded! Believe it or not.

As for MA, well its easy to be a critic....however...
Look at the Pack of P.. Tickets the 4Day has become.
THis is and should be the best local development / training / practice run / performance lifting style event per year for any Aussie seeking to reach the pinnacle of our Enduro Scene.

And Aust Women's Team should be lauded (fingers crossed as at day 3 2018) for their phenomenal efforts of the last 5years.

Yet in Ql MQ are more concerned with sub-letting office space from the HQ they obviously invested in After the last white elephant the then ACU-Qld dumped all their money into back in 1979. Which was Tivoli HQ Office facility. Which by the way was closed for good just three months ago.

Finally seen the FIM Day2 Highlights, where it was stated that it was
A Team Error that resulted in #222 Snodgrass engine malfunction!
Anyone here what it was?

Air Filter not Seated?
Didn't refill Engine Oil after dropping it?

It takes a massive effort to get the riders across to Chile to compete; yet some bloke in a G-string speedo & a bath cap can get more publicity because he competes in a "safe", politically correct sport.
It's disgusting, especially when media outlets are starving for stories.

With very little effort the riders would be on every morning show, sports show, motorsports show and radio before and after the event.
