I'm heading over to the NZ xetrra round next year.

 

Currently have a dullie, but I'm looking at getting a HT.

 

Anyone on here that has done or is doing it.

 

Looks like it will be not too bad track wise.

 

Also a general warning as my trips to nz normally end up with shit weather and canceled races.

Looks like a fair bit of climbing so a 27.5 hard tail is probably the go unles your dually is super light.

I rode the last 10km in Jan and it is a gravel road, that was quite rough, best described as $WD track for the knowledgeable driver. . I would go duelie unless it weighs a tonne. Comfort rules. I was on my Felt 100mm travel duelie

 

from memory Flanman has done it and posted video under race reports

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 .
