The Wairoa Gorge was invaded by 280 riders today as the bike fraternity turned up to pay homage to one of the legends behind the Gorge and the NZ bike industry.
The weekend is technically a race but the vibe and ethos of Saturday at the Dodzy is more about catching up with mates and riding some of the world’s best trails. In fact the organisers struggled to get certain riders of the trails at the end of the day.

Our new suspension started from a blank sheet of paper. We set everything aside and started with one question: how can we continue to elevate every ride?

Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
