The BikesportNZ.com photo archive is a treasure trove of classic old snaps.
We have decided that each week we are going to run an archive photo or two – a bit of a guessing game for you. See if you can answer the questions about BOTH photos.
We’ll offer you a few clues, but we also want to keep you guessing.
Check back and we’ll give you the answers next week, along with our next “Who’s that?” feature photos.
Crown Kiwi – EVS – Alpinestars – 100%
Plus, we have a sponsor for the feature. Thanks to Crown Kiwi, EVS, Alpinestars and 100% apparel and accessories, we can offer a small prize each week – a tee-shirt or a cap – to the first respondent with the correct answers.
The winner of our last quiz was Dunedin’s Alan Tocher, who was the first to correctly identify the riders in the two photos.
Mr Tocher has won in the past too, so, from here onwards, we’ll offer the prize to contestants who have not already won in the past, just to spread it around.
Clues for photo above:
This photo shows a couple of young riders crashing at the Rotorua circuit during the motocross nationals in 2011. Who are they?
We do also need you to answer the question about the photo below.
Clues for photo below:
This photo shows a Kiwi international, competing internationally.
Last week’s characters revealed:
It is Christchurch’s Eric Oliver-Maxwell.
He raced the 125GP class with some success in New Zealand and then stepped up to the 600cc ranks, where he finished third overall, behind Midge Smart and Jaden Hassan in the 600cc superstock class in 2011.
Oliver-Maxwell is now living on Australia’s Gold Coast.
The second photo featured last week was of a trio of young Canterbury racers, horsing around in the pits at Manfeild about four years ago.
We wanted you to name all three individuals. The young man in the centre is Christchurch’s Nick Cain, sandwiched between Hoogenboezem brothers Alastair (left) and James (right).
Cain was another rising star in road-racing in New Zealand, who, at the tender age of 14, fought his way onto the podium at one round of the nationals in 2007.
Racing in the super motard class, the talented all-rounder broke his back at the Nelson street races at the start of 2011 and it wasn’t until the end of the season that he made it back onto the race track. He now lives in Auckland.
Alastair Hoogenboezem finished seventh overall in the 600 supersport class this year. James finished 10th overall.

Note: Be careful to answer the questions being asked. We may ask for a time, a place, an event or ask for one or several of the individuals in the two photos to be identified.
