This looks like it could be a great event to enter or just watch. There’s money and food on offer here. A must for everyone.
I’ve been asked if I can help out with the timing. At first I thought, yeah easy, but when I read how this event is going to be run I started to think again. Not quite the simple timed runs. What a format. I might have to find a little bike and enter the 36+ categorie.
The Taupo Mountain Bike Club in conjunction with Taupo Pak N’ Save and their trusty friends Coca-Cola (Pump Water) and Wide Open Distributors are proud to present NZ’s first ever Pump Track nationals Sunday 28th November 2010 ( morning after Round the lake cycle challenge / Huka Challenge ).
