Huge few days down South for the final round of the NZ Extreme Enduro Championship.

Friday was the enduro cross (also NZ Enduro Cross Championship). I struggled to feel myself on the bike and had some very average results. I made a big mistake in the final points race which resulted in getting my bike wedged in between the wall ride and hay bales. It really summed up my day (and year perfectly) and totally cocked up my weekend and overall series points.

On Saturday we headed into the hills for a 5 hour hard enduro GPS race in some pretty rugged country. The track was an eye opener and extremely hard to race for the first lap. Those that made it around the first lap, spent a lot of time off the bike pushing bikes trying to make the track. Most of the gold class suffered from navigation errors and received a DNF. The second lap had more of a line cut in and it became more ridable. I was happy to turn the weekend around with a win after a big day on the bike and was one of only two people to complete two laps of the track. Well done to Daniel for an epic ride on Saturday. I was really happy with my choice of Mitas Tyres New Zealand - the MX SM front and rear worked great on the grassy hill climbs and my TSS Motorcycles KTM 300 EXC didn’t skip a beat all day.

Overall I finished up in 2nd place for the series behind Sam Parker. Congrats on the win. It’s really awesome to see the young guns coming through.

Huge thanks to the Dandos for letting us take over their house and to everyone else that helped out over the weekend.

Big thanks to my wife and kids for chasing me around the country! I couldn’t do it without you!

It’s been a really tough year for us with a huge amount of sickness in our household. I was extremely ill two weeks ago and have struggled with fatigue since. I have carried three major injuries this season - ribs, knee and thumb. I’m currently working with the specialists on my knee and thumb and hoping to get these fixed up and rehabbed over the next wee while. Time for a rest and to come back stronger in 2024.

Awesome effort Jake 🤝🏻 Now enjoy the rest!!

What a year! I feel like we’ve ridden a roller coaster of massive highs and lows weekend after weekend… sometimes all in one weekend! 😆🫣 Anything can happen as we saw on Saturday and I admire your absolute pure grit, determination and perseverance to keep going despite the injuries and challenges you have faced this season, often laced with the unnecessary added pressure from others. You’ve battled so hard this year and we are so very proud of you. I know you’re not stoked on the final result but hey, what an absolute banger result really! 😘 We love you! Time to heal that poor body and come back stronger! Love from your no. 1 fan always! 🥰 P.S Sorry for the PDA and novel 🤣🥰

You are a great role model Jake - things don’t always go according to plan - you just have to keep showing up and doing what you love and we admire your determination.

You are a fucking warrior mate! When I saw you at work last week I thought "Yeah this guy's crook!" Can't believe you went and raced! Champion!

Well done, best wishes. Great pics

Congratulations buddy. Still a really strong effort, really proud to be associated with you and your family.

Way to go Jake, some of those injuries would have been hard to ride on with. You all have been delt a hard year of sicknesses, surely next year it will be better 🙂

Massive long weekend away racing the Forestland Hard Adventure Enduro.

Friday’s prologue went really well & I came away with the win. This gave me a time advantage and also the opportunity to pick my starting position in the top 10.

On Saturday I opted to leave in 10th place, 10 minutes behind the lead rider. I made some good time up in the morning & caught up to the front runners just after the service break. I had a good battle with @wil_yeoman96 in the afternoon & by the end of the day after 7 hours of tough riding (gnarly hill climbs, rock gardens and insanely steep downhills), I had gained a 4min lead.

I gave my knee a good knock early on Saturday morning, which made things pretty tough for me for the rest of the event (nothing broken but awaiting an MRI scan).

Sunday was easier but still a long day with a couple of tough climbs and big off cambers to get through. Wil and I raced wheel to wheel for most of the day. After 6 hours 45min on the bike, I managed to take the overall event win by just over 3 min.

So stoked to finally grab a win at this event. I’ve managed to make the podium every year for the last 5 years, but have narrowly missed out on the top step, some years by seconds. Nice to have it all come together!

Well done to everyone that had a crack at this event. It is so awesome to see so many young guys coming through across all grades.

Despite picking up an injury, I had an awesome time riding with the boys. This event is just a big adventure.

Massive thanks to Sean Clarke and the whole crew. We are very lucky to have the opportunity to race an event like this, of such a high calibre in NZ.

Thanks to Shaun for helping out with the bike in the pits.

Thanks to everyone that helped out over the weekend looking after our kids.

Lastly, a big thanks to Janey for chasing me around all weekend. She worked her little butt off! So grateful for your support!

Well done buddy 👏🏻👏🏻 hope that knee come right

Bloody brilliant!!! You raced hard, but it also comes down to attitude and you have one of the best!

Looks hard 😅

Congratulations Jake, sounds like a mammoth effort and a well deserved win 🏆

Well done. Huge effort and great result.

Congratulations on a well earnt win! 🥳🏆

Great stuff Jake

Given that you couldn’t actually walk first thing Sunday morning… 😬 I’d say this is a bloody epic win! Ferns special concoction and a tonne of strapping tape, combined with your determination, perseverance and never give up attitude made for a great recipe for success 😆. So proud of you. Great weekend racing with great people! You inspire many! Keep doing you! ❤️

Well done

Epic
