Just arrived home after our 3 day New Zealand Championship over labour weekend. This year it was held down in the south Island in Alexandra, one of my most favorite places to ride with all sections being set on big slabs of rock with endless traction. I made it 6 titles in a row this year winning the expert class with a clean three days, which meant I was able to ride faultless the entire competition, something I haven’t been able to do since I was riding in the junior class but never a three day event!!
The event was set on the easier side to the usual standard of sections here in NZ, the top few riders were loosing very few points which made it a tough event mentally, a laps in concentration could have resulted in a very different outcome, even the riders in the bottom end of the grade had very low scores for a championship level event. After handing in 4 lap cards of zero on Saturday I new it was going to be possible to ride the rest of the two days clean as well, the sections down there don’t change a lot and the conditions were good although on Sunday there were some high gusts of wind come through which made things interesting on top of some of the higher rocks.
Monday there were a couple of slightly tougher sections which took some points off the other riders, it was a awesome feeling coming out of the last section on Monday with another clean lap card, although it was an easy event it was a huge relive to accomplish such a perfect win.
A massive thanks to my minder Nick, Wellington Ixion club and everyone who helped me in making it all come together once again,
My sponsors, couldn’t have accomplished what I have done this season without you all!!!
