Saturday 14 May: Top of the South Cross Country Series Round 1 Pig Valley Wakefield
With both Junior and Senior events, the 2016 local series kicked off in style, with the added pressure of South Island and National Championship racing thrown in for good measure. Hard, Fast, Clean racing saw titles won and lost in the inches leading to lapscoring - who says that only happens in motocross!

Been there Done That...
Sunday 24 April: Tadmor Community Group Fundraiser Trail Ride
Org: Peter Wilks
Excellent turnout of 340+ riders. Bit of rain the night before made things a bit tricky first thing but later made for great riding conditions. Weather on the day couldn't have been better so all in all a successful event and lots of happy riders. Special mention to Andrew who turned up at 7:30 in the morning-said he had just come over from the U.K!! A keen lad if there ever was one!
Many thanks to all the riders and the local lads for helping set-up. We also really appreciate the generosity of the landowners: Bruce Moffat, Brent Hodgkinson, Peter Philips, and Tony Firth, and the team of volunteers on the day.

Carry your fire extinguishers, clear headers and check spark arrestors before going out plus display your Vehicle Dashboard Card and put your Permit Tag on your bike. Do not mark trees or cut tracks! Be polite when you are stopped and please promote this riding scheme to other users as this will help us keep our access.
