    Challenge wananka 2017

    WANAKA is a tough race but picturesque , a real challenge with its bumpy road surface . Hate to say it but it might be too much for Luke . Great race though . NZ south island has some great race experience .

    If you are thinking of going , book accommodation early -it fills fast. Either Queenstown or Wanaka , with all races available 5000 + competitors. 3000 in MTB section alone . Amazing race , best viewed from BOP ( ha ha ) Enjoy the journey as this property is only open 1day of year .

    Motatapu Xterra

    First time I looked at this section for a while. I did Motatapu in 2014 and 2015 and totally loved it. See my race report . I am fighting some crap at the moment but will love to do it again when able. Lots of flatish climbing with grooves all over . I used a dual suspension and found it comforting on the downhill last 12km . Contact me if you like . I have been singing this race for a while but no one appeared interested. Great race. , you will love it . Hans

    Great read. Sounds like you enjoyed it . Others who don't vencher beyond WTC races can't imagine the beauty of isolation in a tough terrain. Similar but shorter race may be found at the Motatapu race in southern NZ in February . Unfortunately WTC seems to have gotten their fingers in it somehow . A good training lead up to Celtman(maybe). Congratulations for a job well done. Regards. Hans
