Race record smashed at Nzo Whaka 100 in Rotorua

October 26

It was four Nzo Whaka 100 wins in a row for Rotorua’s Carl Jones, on his home trails on Saturday. 

 

That was only half the story as he also smashed his own race record for the toughest mountain bike race in New Zealand by 13 minutes to finish in a sensational 4 hours 31 minutes.
And the local hero was nursing a bad dose of ‘flu.

 

“I wanted this one pretty bad,” he said. “I went to Malaysia to race a couple of weeks ago and I wanted to come back with some form for the Whaka 100, then I got sick, but I tapped it out, went hard and got it.”
