Wow – series final already – sure is.
Dunedin is the place to be for the series final of the DHcoNZ Clark Land Surveyors tour of NZ.
Hot on the heels of the blistering Christchurch round – we head south for the showdown to be held on the famous Signal Hill in Dunners.
With the recent invasion of northern hemisphere world cup riders the local lads will have their mahi cut out to make the top step of the pyramid. Will the UK boys take 3 x 1st’s – probably not (but who tf knows !). Could Justin return to his home track and send his brand new Canyon Sender into 1st ?
Other ones to watch are Laurie Greenland who took out seeding with Edwardo Mysterio literally a pubic hair behind him in seeding but both failed to keep it clean for the race. Eventual winner Bernard KERR would also be a strong bet for tri-factor.
This is the lead in race for New Zealand National Championship the weekend after in Wanaka – so get your race prep ready for the big one.
So as usual there is the $1000 pro-elite prize money, plus the $500 for 5 fastest race times of the day.
Then the $2000 being split between the top 5 male pro and top 4 female pro overall – courtesy of Clark Land Surveyors.
