The event looked awesome & great to get coverage on TV3 - insanely jealous of everyone taking part!

Not the first in NZ though, just sayin
And do tell, where WAS the first???

Wellington I believe, some years ago. there were absolutly no issues with running that event ;)


First one no problems, cops 'arrived' just as the last runs finished the next year. If pressed I could probably remember who won both events :lol:

So much fun, that night :)

Hats off the Lyttelton event organisers though, would love to see more events like this.

I reckon Tauranga could challenge it for spectacle quality though; ressurect the Mount DH event I say!

Also I believe Wanaka holds one annually, or at least have for the past few years.

Well, it's the 2013 one TODAY !
http://www.huxster.org.nz/lyttelton-urban-down-hill/
Wish I was still in CHCH :(

Very suprised NO MENTION WHATSOVER (that I could see anyhow) in the VORB Newsletter I received today-Are you still CHCH-based? You certainly used to be.
Not much/anything to be found on New Posts/Search either....

Sure Tama would've thought it deserved coverage...

So, any suggestions where to go for NZ MTB chitchat on forthcoming UCI World Cup DH (There's normally a thread on here by now), or the New Enduro season? As seems VORB's not the MTB hub it once was :( :( :(

I've noted driver695 hasn't been posting on here recently - she is clearly the cause of this demise.
