The 2nd round was in Napier, but decided to pass on this event, as last season, we had a right mare that weekend. So not wanting history to repeat, I chilled with my family that weekend.
The 3rd round was held at Auckland 440 Mountain Bike Park. The heavens had opened up and the track was muddy. No words can really describe how bad the conditions were that day, but I seemed to be very much on form. Maybe it was because its a local track or I had my setup right but amongst all the bodies sliding down the hill in the mud, I managed to take 1st place, beating second place by 8 seconds. I was stoked.
The final round was at Aucklands Dome Valley. The weather was perfect and so was the track. Competition was pretty tight on the day and I walked away with 3rd place.
For the series overall I managed to take home a 2nd place trophy which I was very happy with. Especially going into the season with little to no training.
