2012 Mid-North Island Cup (M-NIC)
The 2nd round of the 2012 Mid-North Island Cup held in Napier yesterday with 85 entries. Nearly half from Hawkes Bay.
Congrats to all who entered and local rider Gillian Slater (Vet Woman) for being the only local to win a category in the Mid-North Island series. Apparently the pink nail polish worn by Garth Weinberg was the winning formula for Vet2 Men, stomping out a winning lead on the 3x lap course – nothing to do with being a single speed legend!
Great riding by all the kids and parents in the Recreational event – wonderful to see our local kids enjoying some cross country racing.

A big thank you to all the volunteers who helped on the day and in the lead up to the event – the whole HBMTB Club team did a great job. Awesome work by Brendyn White, for setting a great course and running a fun event, enjoyed by all.

Thanks to all the sponsors for their support and to Eskdale School (food stall), the Napier Fire Volunteers (1st Aid) and The Shot Hastings (coffee) for supporting the event.

Round 2 Results

Round 3 is this Sunday 18 November, at Cougar MTB Park in Tokoroa (Rego from 9am)
