On lower steps of the podium a couple of times before, Chris has reached the top step this year. Wahoo.

That man deserves a DB :thumbsup:

Intereseting interview with Chris here http://www.drd.co.nz/News.aspx?cmd=interview&id=5

One thing you may not realise is Birchy’s exploits on a bike of a different kind. One that you push yourself. “I was quite into my mountain biking for a while there. I have won the New Zealand mountain bike Trials three times now...."

I remember he used to have an N-zone frame (possibly one of the original slackers?) with triple clamps and used to do crazy wheelie drops off some of the old stunts at woodhill.

Congratulations Chris, tough event.

Does anyone knopw how Simon Crafar got on mending himself after breaking his back in Romania (last year?)
It would be nice to know he's fit again
