I just got off the phone with Dave Meikle at GT and he had some exciting news for all you Whaka 100 racers. Event organiser Dean Watson and Dave sat down and figured out a new and fair way to decide who gets the GT Golden Force. All category winners from the Whaka 100 (who ride the full 1ookm) will have their names placed in and drawn from a hat (or bucket or what ever is handy), this way women and juniors also have a shot at the bike. One lucky winner will ride away on the blingest bike in New Zealand. And seeing as pretty much no one in New Zealand is really sponsored properly you’ll have a pretty good shot at the bike… That is if 100km of hurt is your bag. There’s more info here and here.
Sram/RockShox – May 27th, 2022
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? The result is a revolutionary system designed
to deliver unprecedented control, muscle, and performance. New chassis designed with industry-first damper technology, reinvented air springs, a host of new technologies to mute trail chatter and win the fight against friction. Suspension that has the confidence to meet the demands of riders today and empower them to take the sport somewhere new tomorrow.
