20 from the Naki compete in NZ MTBO Champs


From quiet beginnings in 1996 when Sinclair’s made a foot and MTB rogaine on a city map, to the Sinclair family making monthly trips to Wellington to compete in the only MTB events in the country, to the first MTBO champs in 2000 at Hanmer Springs where Sinclair and Sanderson Collins families won and got their names engraved at the tops of the new trophies, there’s been a slow ground swell of interest in MTBO culminating in 20 competing at Rotorua for the 2016 MTBO Champs.

Against the best in NZ and a sizable contingent from Australia, the Taranaki group came away with a number of wins and placings. See results on the NZ MTBO website

The three short warmup events around the fabulous Whaka Forest trails on Friday evening shocked a few (especially the Aussies) with the steep terrain but got us all used to the fancy new Sport Ident Air system where we did not need to “dib” but just ride past within 30cm for the control to register onto our SI stick.

The competition itself began on Saturday morning with a sprint around the Tihiotonga Campus and Centennial Park – tight and tricky in the buildings followed by a leg stretch on the hills of the Park.

In the afternoon we travelled north to Tui Ridge Park, a school and Christian camp with a large area of bush and trails. We got a cooling dose of drizzle during the event that did nothing to help dry out the tracks but did make for tricky map reading through rain spots on the map and glasses.

The Champs culminated with the long distance event at Cougar Park, Tokoroa where there were hills aplenty but also some fantastic riding.

Congratulations all attendees - Andrew, Annie + Nick, Keighley + Jorja + Tayla + Heleena + Simmo, Jay + Don, Hilary + Newton, Jacqui + Neil, Thomas + Jonathan, Pam + Len, Rainbow, Simon.
 
No photos, too busy riding!!

16 Dec Rogaine results, Stumble Inn


Another great turnout, on a wet and blustery night.  Some superb scores and plenty of patience with the setter’s mysterious non-existant 39B address.  See you all next week.
cheers Fiona
