With a months rest after the pedal fest of Rotorua – we head to the sunny shores of Hawkes Bay for round 2 of the NZDH Series 2017 presented by Troy Lee Designs.
Situated in the eastern blocks of the famed Eskdale forest the Pakuratahi Road access course is one for the pinners. Last year saw a 1st run upset in that youngster Keegan Wright pipped local legend Brook Macdonald over the line by a cock-hair. During the break the heavens opened which ended any chance of a 2nd run victory for the Bull Dog – he’ll be out for the top spot again !
With Eskdale forest currently being harvested – it could mean that this is the last time, for some time that we get to ride this fast jump ridden course.
Have a look at the Hawkes Bay Mtb Club for details.
Attached is a map for the Pakuratahi Road pit area.
Please remember to bring your number if you have one. Also following he Commissaries course in Vegas last week- we may even have some nice people to check that the protection policy is being applied correctly.
Age groups – if a rider decides to ride up an age group, please note that the protection requirements are mandatory for the age of the rider not so much the age group. Theres a few sneaky fellas out there !!
