At the moment it seems the phrase “Super D” and “mate’s races” are on the tip of everyone’s tongues.
With that in mind the crew at West Coast Riders Club spent 50 hours of the last few weeks carving out a buff “Super D” trail in their ever expanding Riverhead Bike Park. To christen the 6-7 minute trail they held Auckland’s first Super D race.
The nice thing about this style of racing is that you get all sorts of riders from DH slayers to Lycra clad 29er XC boys showing up. That said, it was washed up DH legend Byron Scott that trashed the competition with a time of 5:33, over 30 seconds up on second place.
An awesome trail, combined with great weather and a Unimog for uplifts equalled a kick-arse afternoon of racing. Bring on the next Super D.
