If you can’t find your fuel tap it will be on Jules’s bike. She broke hers yesterday lol

Wildwood Rock Extreme Enduro 2018... What a ride!
.
In qualifying I somehow managed to knock my gear lever and find neutral over a jump right at the start of the prologue track and crashed hard. I was winded and sore but got up quickly to salvage any time that I could and qualified in 13th.
.
The race was nothing like I’ve ridden before. With only 3 hard sections, it wasn’t what I’d call a typical NZ hard enduro. The lap was very short and filled with rocky single lined paddocks that you couldn’t pass in. I worked hard and slowly made my way into 7th place. There was a lot of traffic on the track to contend with which was frustrating at times. I made a mistake and dropped back to 9th with two laps to go. The last couple of laps were full of confusion with some of the riders sent back to the pits along the road and others along the track as an unfortunate rider needed to be helicoptered out. A disappointing finish for me, but a finish in 9th overall!
.
Huge thanks to Brendon Roberts from KTM Australia for helping out with a bike for the event, to Rob and Christine for the awesome hospitality, to everyone for the support from back home and of course to my sponsors that help make this happen!

Great result for your first time here!! Everyone’s been so amazing and welcoming to us! Thank you! 👏

Wel done. You missed a great event here in NZ . Over the top hard enduro was fantastic.

Well done Jake - always better 2nd time round. Great to have the live feed and watch it from home.

That’s the Husky Hard Enduro over for another year! Pumped to make the podium but naturally disappointed I couldn’t bring home the title!

Day 1 kicked off with qualifying at the Satco yard. I was stoked to come back from a terrible start and qualify in first position. The incentive to qualify first meant I got to choose my starting position. Opting to start in 4th so I wasn’t lead rider on a completely unridden track was my tactic. Unfortunately there was some confusion and the top 10 ended up choosing there start positions too, meaning any advantage was lost and I had all the guns behind me. Huge thanks to Warrick and the team at Satco for putting up the prize money for this event!

Day 2 was a big day on the bike. After almost 7 hours of riding Tom, Dylan and I came in together. This meant Dylan effectively had 2mins on me and Tom 3mins on me as they started behind me. The day was frustrating with all of us making break aways at different points in the day but navigating by GPS in dense bush got the better of all of us and any lead would soon be lost.

Day 3 was another huge day. The morning was tough. I made a big break in the morning and had a lead at the lunch stop however, I had to keep stopping as my fan wasn’t working so my bike didn’t boil. The team tried fixing it at the lunch stop but had no luck. After lunch we had one hard section and then it just opened up. The fast boys caught me in the open track and it was a sprint to the finish. I managed to get the edge over Dylan and Tom but it was just short of the 2 min needed. After 14 hours of racing Dylan grabbed the win by 49 seconds! Well done boy!

Big ups to my team mates Dylan and Tom for the awesome riding all weekend along with Chris who showed us all he’s still got it but was just a bit unlucky.

Massive thanks to Shaun, Adele and the rest of the crew for putting on another outstanding event!

Last but not least thanks to my behind the scenes crew - Maxton swinging spanners with Shaun and Jane for literally running around pitting for me and being super Mum all weekend!

Without fan issues the numbers would be different. Excellent work mate

Bugger. Better get that fan fixed. Great result especially with mechanical issues.

Big extra long weekend! Awesome result! Maxton and I are very proud of you! #daddyismyidle
