Okay so this video is EPIC. It just goes to show how much the riding in Nelson rules, the trail in the clip is the downhill in the Coppermine race. You can see why I’m spending two weeks there over New Year!!! But it wouldn’t have been that hard to add a bit of music to the clip right?

  1. Is that Bob at the front there. Don’t tell me she got an uplift to the top of that hill…I’d have to check if hell had frozen over (feels like it in Wellington at the moment)

  2. @Getoffmytail, that’s Harriet Harper (current national DH champ) and her partner Boyd Grinstead (who’s not too shabby on a bike either), that’s just the way they ride……just some close riding.
    The other thing you need to know about this clip, is that this is pre-Damianisation (as I like to call it), the track has now been improved, the corners are more flowy and things like the water bars have been designed for bikes to ride of them. These improvements are all part of NZ cycle way and Damian Stones (Firepit pump track) got the job to create the new single track, so you really need to think ‘over-sized’ pump track.
    Also the original Boulder Valley line is still in place if you like rough and ready.
