Freyja

A Cure For Freyja


Another auction of Moto GP memorabilia

MotoGP auction

Floyd Primmer's youngest son Patrick Primmer (a VVCMCC club member) and his wife Justine, are organising another auction of Motor GP memorabilia and merchandise from MotoGP riders and teams, to assist in finding a cure for young Canberra girl Freyja Christiansen.

In January 2016, Freyja was diagnosed with a rare adult cancer called, Clear Cell Sarcoma. She has it in her neck and abdomen. Initially 37 doctors refused to operate, fearing catastrophic damage to critical structures in her neck. Then a robotic surgical team in Melbourne agreed to tackle her tumours and this worked to some degree. She's been through rounds and rounds of immunotherapy and 28 sessions of pencil beam radiotherapy.

Freyja is defying the odds, however she's endured 18 months of painful, invasive procedures and treatments in her battle against it. Yet still she smiles. Still she puts up with the relentless tubes, injections, operations, scans and medicines. Still she puts up with the hideous side effects like Mucositis which inflames her digestive tract and makes swallowing painful and impossible so that she must be fed by tube. Still she puts up with frequent cross-country travel to the medical teams that are her only hope.

Health services cover some things, but there are many things they don't. Cancer is expensive! Her Mum Liz is on her own and can't work while caring for Freyja full time.

Lane filtering in the ACT - October 2018



LANE FILTERING IS NOW LEGAL IN THE ACT AFTER A TWO YEAR TRIAL.

Motorcycle lane filtering is when a motorcycle is riding between two marked lanes with the same direction of travel as the motorcycle when there are stationary or slow moving vehicles next to the motorcycle in both marked lanes.

Motorcycle lane filtering in the ACT

Lane filtering is:
- only allowed when safe to do so;
- not allowed at a speed greater than 30km/h;
- only allowed by fully licensed motorcyclists (ie. learner and provisional licensed motorcyclists are not allowed to lane filter);
- not allowed on the kerbside next to a footpath or in bicycle lanes or breakdown lanes;
- not allowed in ANY 40km/h zones (such as school zones, roadworks and city centres); and
- not allowed past heavy vehicles and buses.

Motorcycle lane filtering is not the same as lane splitting.
Lane splitting involves higher speeds (above 30km/h), which increases the unpredictability of motorcyclist movements for other road users. Lane splitting is not permitted in the ACT.
