Loving the new Mitas red stripe terra force mx s/m I’ve been using recently. I was lucky enough to get my hands on a couple of these for the past few events. I first fitted it up for the Taikorea 500 and after loving it there I used it again for the final 2 rounds of the National Enduro Series in Santoft. All three days of racing was sand based so the wear on the tyres was never going to be huge however, I tried the same one out at the dirt guide cross country last weekend and it was awesome! That’s 4 days of some pretty demanding racing and it’s still good to go for more! This is a slightly harder compound from the green C18 that I’ve been using and is something worth giving a go!👌🏻Head over to the Mitas NZ website to get your hands on one and see for yourselves. 😎

Do you run a tubliss in the rear as they are awesome for tyres to last longer than heavy duty tubes???

It was a good fun race yesterday at the 2nd round of the Dirt Guide cross country series. After a bad start to the series a few weeks back (not even being able to crack into the top 20 riders), I’ve been pretty focused on making some improvements.
.
I started off the second row (we were placed in rows of 20 based of our last result) and I was pretty keen to catch up to the first row riders as soon as possible. I was happy to be mixing it up with them halfway round the first lap. I pushed hard for the 2 hour race and was happy finish off 5th overall and 2nd in the open 2 stroke class. It was a good improvement. Cant wait to get out there and do it all again.
.
Massive thanks to Shaun for the quick pit stop as per usual, Renny at Sevenee Suspension for getting my bike handling awesome and lastly a big thanks to my wife Jane for all the help and support with all the on bike and off bike training the last few weeks.

This time 4 years I crossed the finish line of the Red Bull Romaniacs Hard Enduro race. I never thought I’d be so glad to hear my wife screaming at me 😂 ... but that day I truely was. Physically and mentally it was without a doubt the toughest race I’ve ever done. I pushed my body and mind to the absolute limit. After approx 38 hours of riding I finished 13th overall in the gold class. Only 17 of the 52 that started that year finished which shows you just how tough it was. Every year I toy with the idea of digging deep and giving it another crack... we’ll see.

Legend 🙌

They don't call it the toughest extreme enduro race in the world for nothing... what a bloody emotional roller coaster that was 😂. Amazing achievement. I'd love to go back with you... just need to find a money tree!!! 💵💰

I say make it happen, before the romance of it wears off ⛰️. Aim high.

I say do it setup a go fund me page I'll donate I'm sure there are tons of others too

I plan on doing it next year (bronze), not gold 😉 need to do it before the body breaks and I regret not doing it.

That’s epic Jake. Would be great to see you have another crack at it.

Solid bro 💪🏼 great achievement 👍🏼

do it

I say do it!

2021 let’s go

That’s a wrap on the 2020 NZ Enduro Nationals. We raced the last two rounds over the weekend in the Santof Forest just out of Bulls - one of my favourite places to ride. I had two awesome days on the bike. I felt good and didn’t make too many mistakes. Unfortunately I didn’t get the results I was striving for in the series this year. With only seconds splitting the top 10 in places it was fair game. I finished the series in 9th overall and 5th in class. The level of riders in the top 10 is at its peak. It’s so great for the sport. The competitiveness is one of the reasons I moved across to riding an enduro bike. Well done to the Hamish, Dylan and Seth on taking out the top 3 and to all my team mates on some great rides. Thanks to Shaun, Ross, Jane and Maxton for their help in the pits and ongoing support over the series. A big thanks to all my sponsors for their continued support.

Get ya bookings in! 👍I know with these temperatures 🌡 and all that 🌧 it's hard to imagine that spring isn't actually that far off.
But because we don't want anyone to miss out this is just a little heads up that we've been super busy with custom builds which means that we're currently not holding any stock.
We are now taking orders for October so if you're wanting your trailer before summer you need to get in quick and contact us now.

Had a good time racing the Taikorea 500 yesterday. Two hours of sand was full on but so much fun. Finished the day off in 7th overall after some good tight racing. My TSS Motorcycles KTM 300 EXC was running awesome all day and thanks to Sevenee Suspension it was handling the demanding sand track better than ever. Big thanks to Shaun for his help in the pits all day. Also well done to Jane on her 3rd place in the women’s.

👇Just arrived into stock, the new TERRA FORCE-EH.

Super Gummy Extreme Enduro Tyre.

The NEW replacement for the world famous EF-07 -Several years of testing by MITAS has produced a tyre for Extreme Enduro that has significantly improved mud performance over EF-07, including new self clearing carcass ridges, and wider central knob gapping -yet still retains all the rock sheet and round rock boulder performance of its predecessor with its added new cross cut knob tops to break mud /clay /water surface tension. Tested with great results at Erzberg and Romaniacs in 2019, it has proven to be the new standard in Extreme Gummies.

Particularly suited to South Island conditions and “Nutbuster” type races and/or medium or dryer North Island summer conditions.

Available in 140 x 18 but actually fits up at 120 size and volume.

Mousse or Tubliss strongly recommended for maximum performance

What is this like compared to the C-18? I couldn't fault the C-18 in snotty conditions last weekend. Looks like it's gone semi trials hybrid with the closer knobs and cuts.

I’m running these at the moment. Love them
