The good news however is that the Sprint WILL be going ahead, but on a previously used map, using the Puarenga Park/Scion dog walking area. We had used this for the Middle Distance event in 2019, however it is a quality area that will challenge competitors - especially as we have a really capable Planner/Controller combination with Grant Unkovich and Greg Flynn. We have now issued an embargo notice for this area, so please read up, and also check out the map from the previous event listed in the "2022 Champs" page of this website.
We also had a bit of a wobble with the potential loss of access to our brand new Onepu map, due to a change in ownership of the Onepu Mtb Park and issues around insurance. Fortunately our ONZ Liability insurance proved invaluable for mitigating the concerns the new owner had, so we are very pleased to be going ahead with this event at that venue. Big thanks to the owner, Shane Le Prou, who has been super supportive and positive about our event!
All other planning is going full bore, and the team is working hard to finalize courses and everything else which will make this an awesome champs. If you haven't entered, please do ASAP, and also remind other friends to do the same!
