MX & Off Road Notes


Central XCSeries - 12th December, 13th February, 27th March

National XC Series-13th February, 13th March, 17th April,15th May


Round 3 of the National Enduro Championship was held in Moonshine Valley near Wellington last weekend. It was a two day event but only 1 round which means double points for the weekend, so it was important to stay on the bike.

Saturday was a good day for me, I rode a solid pace all day riding with Tommy Watts and James scott (who were on my minute). I made minimal mistakes and got some solid times over the day. The track was 130km long on fast gravel roads, tight bush sections, rocky creeks and some steep slippery down hills. The race took around 4 hours to complete. I ended up 3rd overall and 1st in class for day 1.

Straight after the race they used ISDE rules where we had only 15 minutes to work on our bikes before the next day, I managed to fit a new rear tyre in half the allocated time, prepped the bike and re-fuelled so it was fresh for Sundays race.

Sunday was the same track with tougher sections thrown in the mix. The race was 112km long with tight times to complete each part of the track. I kept up a nice fast pace at the start of the day getting some good terrain test results in the first two tests. Unfortunately I went down in the last two terrain tests, in one of them I went flying over the bars trying to pass a backmarker and lost some time but managed to get up quickly and carry on to finish up 4th overall for the weekend and 1st in class. My new Yamaha YZ250FX was super reliable all weekend. I'm happy with this result as it has helped me move up the ladder before the last 2 rounds this coming weekend in Masterton on Saturday and Martinbourogh on Sunday to finish off the Championship. I am confident to bring home some good results and hopefully get a podium finish.

Thanks for your awesome support this season.

Kind Regards,

Seth Reardon
