This is Craig - He has been mountain biking for 28 years. He has competed in Downhill events in the Auckland Series and at a National level. Over the years Craig has found time to build Downhill trails and also many kilometers of Cross Country trails. He has also organised a lot of MTB Events for the Club, including the NPMTB XC Club Champs this weekend. But even though Craig doesn't need help to decide what event to race in, you can still help him by getting there early to register.
For the next few weeks, several areas at Mangamahoe will be pruned and thinned.
The tracks affected are: Anti-Climb-Ax: Climb-Ax: Lawson’s Loop: Let it Roll: Mandatory Powerplay
Respect the closures and signage, and if your favourite trail is closed, go and ride one of our other awesome tracks.
