The big news is current Overall Champ and Course record holder Henry Jaine, will not be here to defend his title this year due to choosing to race in the Whaka 100 this time round. We wish him all the best there, and it means the door is open for someone else to take home the Trophy.
As a token gesture we will be giving the number 1 plate to the highest place rider from last years race who has returned to ride again. No Pressure!
