Jaws Enduro

Tasman de Leeuw

Sunday's racing saw a great bunch of riders enjoying the inaugural 3-stage Jaws Enduro. Stage 1 took in the final part of Skullduggery, stage 2 through Remedy and Shady LAdy and Stage 3 of course Jaws, with the bottom section of Big Airs thrown in.

 Some very close results, with Ben Karalus edging out stage 1 & 2 winner Tasman de Leeuw by 10.7 seconds overall. Sandy Vincent took out each stage for the women.

Mountainbike Rogaine

Sunday afternoon saw the second rogaine event held at the park. Hot on the heels of being part of the successful Godzone team 'Team Motueka', Brent Steinmetz was joined by Greg Buckett and took out the event with 990 points.

This was a great family event, combining map work, route planning and of course mountainbiking. Thanks to Linsday Smith with his organization of the event, and also work on creating the permanent orienteering course in Kaiteriteri.

Big thanks to our event sponsors, Port Nelson Ltd, plus Kaiteriteri Beach Camp for providing the facilities.

We’d also like to thank CJ Industries (cones, signs etc), Motueka Rotary Club (marshalling), Alan Eskrick & Dennis Bartlett (timekeeping), Oliver Weber Photography plus our prize donors (Reliance Betta Electrical, Motueka Bike Shed, Wildside Travel, Wheel Woman, Tineli, Whitwells, Trail Journeys, Hi Tec, Physio 4 Health, Ginger Dynamite, Hop Federation, Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle)

The funds raised from the weekend go back into developing the park. Right now we have a jump line being crafted from the Big Airs/Skullduggery hub (stage 1 open now), and plans for a return track from the end of Revelation back to Swampmonster.
