Reece Potter has been a busy boy these last few weeks taking part in the Rabodirect 2011MTB Cup
Although the 3rd round in Rotorua left MTBNZ with an unprecedented decision to cancel the racing due to storm damage, Reece managed two 6th place finishes in Round 1 and 2 in Tauranga and Napier on relatively flat courses, which left him with a 5th place overall in the North Island series.
Moving on to the South Island series last weekend Reece notched up a 3rd place in Nelson. Not bad for a 17 year old competing with strong competition in an U 19's category.
If you find yourself at a lose end this Friday and Saturday, you could do worse than pop over to Nelson and check out the DH at Fringed Hill and give Reece a bit of local support.
Good luck in the rest of the S island series, Reece, keep at it mate, all the best from everyone at the Mountain Bike Club.
