Shit happens

What a weekend! This weekend we tackled the Over The Top Hard Enduro also doubling as round 3 of the NZ Extreme Enduro Nationals in Napier. After being taken out by a terrible bug on Friday night, I wasn’t sure I was going to make it out of bed on Saturday. Jane pumped me with diastop 😂🤦‍♂️ and electrolytes and we made it to the start line of the enduro cross. I perked up for a couple of races but was just holding on in the last one. Race 1 - 3rd, Race 2 - 2nd, Race 3 - 4th giving me 3rd overall for the day. I was happy to secure valuable points heading into day two.
.
Overnight I recovered well and woke up feeling good. The gun went off I grabbed the hole shot on my TSS Motorcycles KTM 300 EXC. Mackenzie Wiig got past and he knew where he was going, so I sat in behind and followed him for the first lap learning the track. We headed into the pits together and after a quick pit from Jane, I headed out just in front of Mackenzie. I pushed hard and pulled a small gap on him. He stayed on my tail (within 2 minutes) for most the race. It was hot work - 30 degrees!!! It made for some extremely tough racing conditions. My water ran out with a couple of laps to go... I was pretty happy to see Jane with water for me on my last lap. Bosses orders were to push hard as Mackenzie wasn’t far behind. He missed the cut off by 5 seconds and didn’t make it out for another lap. Not knowing this, I pushed as hard as I could and after 4 and a half hours I took the win!
.
I’m really happy to take the win on such a fast track (the fastest hard enduro of the series). As Mackenzie had won the enduro cross he took the weekend overall win, I came in second, and Tommy Buxton in 3rd. The extra points this weekend keep me out in front of the championship with a very small margin with one round to go! Looks like it’s going to come down to the wire! Big thanks to everyone that helped out this weekend!

My Mitas Tyres New Zealand hooked up like you wouldn’t believe all weekend at the Husky Hard Enduro. I couldn’t be happier with my current set up! Looking forward to getting a fresh set on for the Over The Top Hard Enduro this weekend!

That’s the Husky Hard Enduro done for another year! We’ve had without a doubt, some of the best riding in the country over the last few days! Big thanks to the Forest Trail Events crew for putting on another great event!
.
After qualifying 2nd in the enduro cross on Friday, I left the pits on minute 2 on Saturday morning. Chris quickly pulled a gap on us with his top knotch navigation skills. Tommy and I chopped and changed for 2nd all day. I came in ahead of him but as he had started on minute 3 he moved into 2nd place overall.
.
Sunday I left the pits on minute 3. I quickly caught Tommy and and then we both caught Chris a little while later. We raced together for the morning coming in as a group to the service stop. After the mandatory stop I felt good. We hit some hard hills and Chris and I made a break away on Tommy. Unfortunately we made a navigation mistake and had to circle back around and ride up the hardest hill of the weekend again 🤦‍♂️. We pushed hard to try and catch Tommy but he’d made up too much ground on us. Chris had enough of a lead from Saturday to take the win, Tommy took 2nd place and I finished up in 3rd place. Great sportsmanship and riding from the boys @birchynz @tom_buxton101 this weekend. Cheers boys!
.
Big thanks to the wife @janey_whitaker and the little man Maxton and @smp_168 for their help in the pits all weekend. Also a big thanks to Mark and Dee for letting us take over their house this weekend!

Made things hard for myself tonight with a crash right off the start line in the prologue qualifying race of the Husky Hard Enduro (did exactly the same thing last year 🤦‍♂️). Managed to battle my way back to qualify 1 second behind Chris Birch in 2nd place! We’ve got 2 tough days of navigating in the bush ahead of us. Looking forward to seeing what we can do. 📸 JW Photography NZ

Such an awesome product! We've had many different covers on Keiran's bikes over the years and the JW Seat Cover is by far the nicest to look at and the hardiest wearing.

You had me at AS.... I'd buy one! 😜🤣

Pitty its on a pumpkin, would look sweeter on a red bike. 😁

Needs to be green or blue mate
