Well, round 1 of the Wellington Underground Super D is in the bag. 23 people showed up at the top of Makara Peak, and Tryfan and Jim put on a sweet event as per usual. The course was Zacs, North Face, Smokin, Magic Carpet and Live Wires. Richard Leacock (who didn’t even know the race was on) took the win with a time of 12:45; Bicycle’s Ryan Williams was second with a time of 13:16, Banga was third with 13:31 and Spoke reviewer Mark Dangerfield and NZMTBR editor Carl Patton drew for fourth with a time of 13:41. I was OTA. Next Wednesday is set for 7pm at the Radar Dome on Hawkins Hill.
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.
