DHCoNZ – Round 2 – Eskdale, Napier.




Clark Land Surveyors Ltd presents round 2 of the DHCoNZ National Tour of New Zealand with the famous Eskdale Forest providing the landscape for an international field of DH Racer’s to rip up.


Round 2 is proudly sponsored by Unit2Go – they are a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company who specialize in the design and manufacture Transportable buildings.

Luckily for us – Mark Ross – Managing Director is a keen mountain biker and father of ‘On-it-grommitT’ Blake Ross.  So keen to see the sport progress, Mark has invested in the Series and will be sponsoring Pro-Elite Prize Money – a big thanks to Mark, and the team at Unit2Go.

So with a few ‘surprising’ results from round 1 – it will be interesting to see who had the goods for Napier.  With Brook McDonald taking the win in the recent NZDH Series by the narrowest of margins (.002) over Keegan Wright, no doubt he will want to stamp his mark on his home turf.

With Hawkes Bay being traditionally dry, no-one ever predicated a rain storm midway thru that race – obviously the ground changed rapidly into a non-negotiable slip fest.  So its either going to be wet or dry – but hopefully nothing in between !.

Organisers are keen to see an improvement in the wearing of protection – check out the MTBNZ Protection Policy if you are unaware of your requirement. You  will be checked !
