You gotta love mountain biking in New Zealand. Even with a governing body you still get people claiming independent events like the New Zealand DH Open in Christchurch and The New Zealand Dirt Jump Open in Auckland and now we have the Pump Track Nationals in Taupo of all places. I guess if you throw an event the weekend of the Round Taupo race, you're guaranteed a pretty good turn out (and a national one too). If anyone one is in Taupo can they send us a photo of the pump track so we know what it's like? (we now have an embedded video below) There's $2500 worth of spot prizes from Wide Open so it should be worth showing up, but unlike the dude in the poster a chain and rear cassette might help.
