Simone Montgomerie’s loved ones set out on a journey to ride 3000km from her home town Streaky Bay in South Australia to Fannie Bay Racecourse, Darwin, where she was tragically killed almost three years ago. The brainchild of Simone’s father, Peter Montgomerie, the purpose of the ride is to commemorate the 26-days of Simone’s life with a 26-day journey, whilst raising funds for the National Jockeys Trust who provided the family with support following her tragic race fall.
Cycling for Simone has already raised over $180,000 for the National Jockeys Trust, via the generosity of sponsors, donors and local communities and this is on track to continue as the team cycles across the outback throughout July. The team crossed the border with an overnight at Kulgera Roadhouse where they departed last Friday morning. The team are making their way towards Darwin where will arrive at Fannie Bay Racecourse on Friday 29 July.
The team was delighted to be joined by Cycling for Simone ambassador Kerrin McEvoy ,who rode the entire first leg of the ride from Streaky Bay to Wudinna – a 133 kilometre journey. Local Community members have supported the Cycling for Simone team from the Eyre Peninsula through to the Northern Territory border.
Over the eight race meetings of the carnival each female rider who finishes in the top three will earn the following donation for Cycling for Simone: • 1st – Donation: $300 • 2nd – Donation: $200 • 3rd – Donation: $100 “Without the jockeys, who put their lives on the line each and every time they ride, we wouldn’t have an industry so Ladbrokes feels it is important to support those who are so crucial to our sport,” Ladbrokes Head of Media Roger Aldridge said. Leading Darwin rider Vanessa Arnott said she was delighted with the news of Riding for Simone. “It is great to see Ladbrokes coming aboard and joining a great line up of supporters for the Cycling for Simone event. All of us in Darwin were deeply affected by Simone’s passing almost three years ago, in particular the group who shared the female jockey room with her.” Arnott said. “Riding for Simone will give us the opportunity to ride for extra – with every placing earning a donation to the event, which ultimately will be donated by Simone’s family and friends to the National Jockeys Trust.” After 3 meetings, the donation stands at $1800 thanks to Vanessa Arnott ($600); Melanie Tyndall ($500); Rebeka Prest ($300); Jackie Beriman & Kayla Cross ($200 each)

Surviving Beatles members Ringo Starr and Paul McCartney have performed together only sporadically since their famous group broke up in 1970, but Starr says he now would love to hit the road with his former band mate. At a recent event in Los Angeles celebrating his 76th birthday, the drummer told Closer Weekly, "I would tour with Paul McCartney tomorrow!"
Having said that Ringo noted, "I'm doing my own tours right now so we'd have to work it out."
As for how he felt about reaching the ripe old age of 76, Starr quipped, "It would be nice to be 70 again! But you get up in the morning and you try to have the best day you can. And be in the best spirit that you can be!"
Speaking about good spirits, the rock legend is known for encouraging people to spread the message of peace and love around the world, as he did at his public birthday celebration in L.A.
At the event, he told Closer Weekly, "I think it is important with all the violence that there is peace and love! And maybe we can have more as the years go on!"
Starr recently posted a video recap of the celebration, which took place in front of the Capitol Records Tower and featured a variety of celebrity guests, on his official YouTube channel.
Meanwhile, Ringo is scheduled to hit the road with his All Starr Band for a brief tour of the western U.S. in October. The group also will visit Japan and South Korea in the fall.

Could AC/DC's September 20 concert in Philadelphia, which brings to a close the band's Rock or Bust tour, actually be the legendary rock group's farewell show? AC/DC's founding lead guitarist Angus Young says he isn't sure.
"At this point, I don't know," Young tells Rolling Stone when asked what his plans might be after the current trek. "We were committed to finishing the tour. Who knows what I'll feel after?"
Angus discussed a variety of topics with the magazine, including the condition of his older brother and longtime band mate, Malcolm Young; how Axl Rose has been doing as a replacement for frontman Brian Johnson; and longtime bassist Cliff Williams' decision to retire from the band following the current tour.
With regard to Malcolm, who had to retire from AC/DC because of dementia, Angus reveals, "It's hard to communicate," adding, "I do pass on messages. I can't be 100 percent sure it goes in there. But I let him know there are a lot of people missing him."
As for Axl, who began performing with AC/DC in May after Johnson was sidelined with major hearing-loss issues, Angus says, "He's been really good. He prepares himself, ready to go. We sit and chew the fat before we get on, work out what songs we want to do."
Young says Johnson's hearing was giving him trouble while the band was rehearsing for the tour kickoff shows at the 2015 Coachella festival and just kept getting worse.
Young also explained that Williams, who joined AC/DC in 1977, "made it known before we'd even started touring [that] this would be his last."
Asked whether he'd like to collaborate with any other musicians if AC/DC calls it quits, Angus says, "I'd sit down with Keith Richards...He's a rhythm guy like [Malcolm]."
