Karapoti Celebrates Three Decades!
Three decades ago mountain biking was a new fringe sport. There were only a couple of bike brands available and any races had been nothing more than a gathering of a few mates. Until one day late in the summer of 1986, when Wellington cycling enthusiast Paul Kennett sent 45 hardy souls into Upper Hutt’s Akatarawa Ranges. On March 7th he’ll do it again as guest starter for the 30th anniversary of what is now the Southern Hemisphere’s longest running mountain bike event.
Just spotted this on redbull.tv: Brandon Semenuk's Rad Company pushes the limits of freeride mountain biking and showcases the skills and passion that make him one of the most versatile and explosive riders on the planet. Brandon handpicked a crew of riders who drive and inspire him in each discipline for this film, ultimately creating some of the highest level of riding ever caught on camera.
