not sure if most people know but the the wellington Mountain bike club will be running a Dh race in couple of weeks up karori park on a similar route to the the old track that was used for the 1998 Dh nationals.
On and off over the last six months tony harvister has been given approval from the council to upgrade and make a few new lines specifically for DH riding .
The track we will be using for this race has come about from tony's hard work , which he has been doing single handly.
The race is just over two weeks away and there are still a number of things that need to done to make a more sustainable track, fun to ride and suitable to a wider range of abilities.
Also the council has come through and cut out a huge number dealict trees that need to be moved of the track into safer positions.
Tony has said he will be up there most days after work and in the weekends up until the race, if people are interested coming along and helping out you should give him a ring or an email.
