New Zealand – a small island, deep in the Pacific has long been a hotbed for mountain bike talent. It’s picture perfect landscape and their lust for the great outdoors has cultivated some of the biggest names in the downhill mountain bike scene. The Land of the Long White Cloud is no secret to mountain bikers worldwide, however, the south island’s largest city of Christchurch is a prime example of a growing scene, which has largely flown below the radar. Some of the world’s best call this place home and one young man who is keen to leave his mark is 18-year-old, BILLY MEACLEM. Christchurch born and bred, Billy works as a trail builder for Christchurch Adventure Park. A quiet, unassuming young man, he lets his riding do the talking and you can understand WHY!
