A little late popping up the post in all our haste to get NZDH Round 1 underway!!
Just before the race we had the first Descend Junior Coaching day for the year. (Yes, we are planning more!!!)
It was great to have 7 u15 riders getting ready for the race this weekend at Rotorua. Louis and Connor Hamilton did a superb job on bike setup, safety gear and answer any questions. Mark Ross ran through the basic rules and how a race day will unfold. Ashley Bond was also in full support, especially good for the two girls to have Ashley there.
This seems to have led to a decent number of u15 riders for the race. Brook, Sam Blenkinsop and Louis also gave out tips at the race to u15 & u17 riders, while there to race as well.
We are currently planning another training day at 440 before the race there.
