This was probably not surprising considering two factors – this was one of the first major dirt bike events happening after the country had been in lock-down due to the Coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic and, secondly, this was a Sean Clarke-organised event, the dirt bike legend who has an unrivalled reputation for producing great events.
Whangamata’s Ethan Jameson won the 90-minute junior race, crossing the finish line ahead of Oparau’s Hunter Scott and Rotorua’s Daniel Bates, while Manawatu’s Paul Whibley won the two-hour senior race, heading off Cambridge’s Dylan Yearbury and Whanganui’s Seth Reardon.
The Dirt Guide Series is sponsored by Michelin, Bel Ray, Renthal, O’Neal, DRC, Zeta, Kiwi Rider magazine, Oakley goggles, Ogio, TCX boots, Yoshimura, Forest Trail Events and SatCo Logging Equipment.
