Hey everyone, I'll front too, I'm Gordon.

It would appear we did have the right end of the stick and were wielding it with some effect too seeing as Plunket got their cheque today. We can only hope that had we stayed quiet they would have got it anyway. 11 months late.

I am glad they have been paid, as this is going to be my first race ride after our new baby girl was born 4 weeks ago. Otherwise I couldn't have justified my payment. Would be interesting to hear the full story though.

How many people plan on doing this ride? The late entry fee now applies, making entering a nice $80, rather expensive I think.

Later this year is the Rotorua-ohope, far cheaper entry, same ride just with a hill at the end. :)

No but a similar region where then you turned left at lake Rotoma to head to matata, in this one you stay in the main road to Whakatane

no I haven't seen anything about this event in years. I enjoyed it too esp the decent down to matata knowing that hill helped so much.
