My bad luck continued at the Hokitika mud fest (also doubling as the final two rounds of the NZ Enduro Series) as we faced more issues outside of my control. The event sure lived up to its name with you guessed it, a tonne of mud. I managed to salvage a few points on Friday to save me from a DNF but it wasn’t a pretty result! Saturday we got back on track and I came home 4th overall for the day. We ended the NZ Enduro series in 2nd place in E3 class! Big ups to Seth for the overall win! Well done mate! Well deserved!
Big thanks to Shaun, Jane and Maxton for braving the snow capped hills, rain and mud to help out over the weekend! I really appreciate all the support!
It hasn’t been the glorious series I was hoping for but I’m crossing my fingers that’s the last of the bad luck for the year! I’m really looking forward to the NZ extreme series which kicks off in September and seeing what I can do!
Thanks to all my sponsors for the continued support! I really couldn’t do this without you!
Round 5 of the National Enduro Series was held at Masterton on Saturday. It was a cool track put on by the bush riders crew with a good mixture of fast flowing farm land, some technical tree sections, and a few fast sketchy down hills to get excited on throughout the day. I finished the day in 3rd overall and 1st in the open 4 stroke class. I can’t get enough of my @tssredbaronmotorcycles KTM EXC 350. I’m feeling more and more confident on it and can’t wait to see what it can do at the final two rounds in a few weeks. I’m currently sitting tied on 3rd overall in the championship, one point behind 2nd place. Thanks to Shaun, Jane and Maxton for braving it out in the cold and helping out in the pits. Also a big thanks to all my sponsors for their continued support!

I raced the second round of the Dirt Guide Cross Country Series on Saturday near Tokoroa. Conditions up there were pretty much perfect which made for some awesome racing. My fresh KTM EXC 350 gave me a good jump off the line putting me within the top five riders heading into the bush. I settled into 4th by the end of the first lap and held that with the front boys in sight until near the end of the 2nd lap. Unfortunately I clipped an old piece of concrete and managed to pick up a puncher. I made it back to the pits and got my spare wheel in, but lost quite a few positions. I managed to make my way back into 6th place overall for the day. Big thanks to Shaun and Tim for their help in the pits! Thanks to Jane for continuing to run the ship at home while I head off racing! . My Mitas tyres gave me heaps of confidence particularly in the muddy bits of the track. I can not rate the XT754 extreme tyre enough in those conditions. I’m loving the new bike and looking forward to seeing what I can do this weekend at the National Enduro in Masterton. Massive thanks to everyone that continues to support me! 📸 @jwphotographynz . . . #acerbis #bellhelmets #ride100percent TSS Motorcycles Workshop Graphics Mitas Tyres New Zealand Crown Kiwi Enterprises CTi Knee Braces JW Seat Covers Interislander KTM Off Road Racing Team New Zealand KTM NEW ZEALAND Motorex New Zealand Alpinestars...
