The 2018 Dirt Guide Cross-country Series kicks off near Tokoroa this weekend, the venue at Ohakuri – about halfway between Tokoroa and Taupo – and it is sure to attract riders from both ends of the aptitude and competitiveness spectrum.
Round two is set for the same course next month, on June 24, and the third and final round of the series on July 22, also at Ohakuri, doubles up as the opening round of the parallel-but-separate NZXC cross-country series, that competition piggy-backing onto select major events throughout the North Island.
