Australian 2009 World Champs Team

The World Champs is only, what, two weeks away? Crikey, that’s soon. I’ve just booked a barbie and a Ute which means that DirtTV will be at Canberra in full pommy force giving you full and indepth coverage from the 2009 World Championships.
All you’ll have to do is crack open a can of Fosters or XXXX (Is that the official 4cross drink?) and sit by your computer.

Here’s the lowdown on the Australian team.

Will the changes to the Canberra track favour current World Cup points leader Sam Hill? Mick Hannah has mentioned that his main goal this season is the Worlds. Will Rennies intensive training payoff? You’ve got to bet on Jared Graves for the 4x title haven’t you?

(Do they get more team members because they’re the host nation? There does seem to be a lot of them.)
