NZ Enduro day three gallery

 Day three of the NZ Enduro began with a short and sweet Heli trip to Fosters hut at the top of the Wakamarina valley. Stage one began with a minute of un-ridden natural loamy skid line before blasting down the old gold miners trail to the creek bed.

 Local rider Jamie Hubbard broke his derailleur off before stage one yesterday. Knowing he had 37km to go he was keen to crack on anyway but had another nightmare on stage 2 when he crashed and snapped his handle bars. He fixed his bike last night and came hauling into day three with a big smile on his face.

 Charlie Murray wasn't sure whether to enter Pro or Am's before the start of the race having not done much bike racing. After a bit of convincing he entered Pro then finished 4th overall. Not a bad result for a young lad who's primary passion is Skiing.

 Sam Shaw has come a long way over the last few years. He battled hard all weekend to claim a hard fought 2nd place. We look forward to following his overseas escapades in the coming months.

 When racers arrived on the river terrace butchers flat they were treated to Granola from local legends Yum, and a coffee cart. Upon returning from the days racing they were treated to an event village packed with food, beer, a raffle raising money for Trailfund NZ and much needed shade from the blazing sun.
