Mt Somers Ride Postponed

Sunday, April 21, 2013

The Mt Somers Ride has been moved to next Sunday the 28th April due to the rain this weekend. Big Al's prediction is it may not be too good on the 28th either but plenty of time to sort out your wet weather gear. If you feel the need to try a new 29er in the race Big Al's have a fleet of Trek 29er hardtails perfect for this event.

Double Header for Young Bikers

Thursday, March 21, 2013
Last weekend was a double header for young mountain bikers. The Aoraki Secondary downhill and x-c champs.

The young crew from Big Al's ruled. Extreme ski/snowboard rental tuners Gareth Burgess and Michael Breading rocked. Michael cleaned up the U15 downhill, Gareth swept up the field in the U17's before shooting off to the Lyttleton Urban Downhill.

Gareth finished 20th in the Open Mens division with the pro elite riders. Alice Todhunter who takes control of the rental department from time to time was 1st in the U19 girls x-c

The Godzone

Thursday, March 14, 2013
The Godzone and Methvens favorite multisport are still on the go but nearly in Queenstown. Very close to Mapac Girls on Top team.

Hopefully the Orion Health team will pass them on this last Mountain bike leg or Mr Currie will be recieving a stern talk to about getting Chicked. Ask yourself how can you do an event like this. There is tough events but adventure racing is another level altogether ! Mr R.T.O. The main man at Big Al's and wife Lana produced a boy Joseph Darra Owen at 10.30 this morning whopdedo !!!!
