New Zealand Downhill Nationals 2017 Round 1

Highlights of the first big race of 2017

Racers start your engines! We’re only a few days into the new year and the first big race is already behind us. After the New Zealand governing body cancelled the National Series, nine clubs bunged together to organise a new, independent at the last minute.

The DH Clubs of New Zealand (DHCoNZ) National tour kicked off at FourForty MTB Park in Auckland. It’s awesome to see the community pulling through like this and some of the country’s top riders turned out in support.

Wyn Masters took the top spot but congrats also to Emyr Davies though, who took fifth on an Orange 29er. This race was about more than the results though, it was the first step to making NZ downhill great again.
