    I'ver said it before, but it bears repeating. A massive thanks to our volunteers for helping run the event, and especially David Bevan-Smith and Dave Nendick, our super-medic.

    A huge chur to the team at the Miramar Track Project for having the trails in such good form, Trails Wellington for the funding to freshen up Jailbrake a few years back, and Con-Air over the past year, and to the team from the Wellington City Council and especially the parks and gardens team for being such good supporters of everything the Welly MTB Club does.

    Cheers to our spot prize supporters, including Pack and Pedal Porirua, Patagonia, ILABB and Riven Rock MTB Park for the great swag.

    And finally, thanks to all of you for supporting the event and the club this year. We hope to see you out on the trails soon.

    Thanks to everyone that came out on Saturday for the 2023 Escape from Mt Crawford Enduro. We had a great day, and hope that you did as well.

    By the close of racing, Jesse Cseh was our King of the Cellblock with a on-the-day fastest time of 8:27.16, and Lara Comesky our Queen of the Cellblock in a time of 9:52.66.

    A frankly surprising number of people put their hands up for the sufferfest climb, many of whom looked like they were regretting their early morning decision making at the top of Jailbrake. The fastest (non-e-bike) up the hill was Jesse in a time of 4:41.31 (only a little over double what many people took to ride down the trail), and fastest woman was Lizzie Varley in a very respectable 7:57.54. Iain Coughlan used boost mode most effectively to make it up the hill in 3:55:35.

    We've loaded full results onto the Welly MTB Club's WebScorer page.

    Results for the Felony course can be found here. The stages for each lap are:

    1. Conviction
    2. Jailbrake
    3. Solitary

    Results for the Misdemeanour course can be found here. The stages for each lap are:

    1. Conviction
    2. Jailbrake (fastest time)
    3. Jailbrake (second-fastest time)

    Results for the Sufferfest climb can be found here.

    And I've dug through the timing system and have found the results for the pumptrack challenge, which can be found here. Congratulations to Kiera Vlaar, who did (at least) 10 attempts.
    I've sorted the results by the fastest time (which shows as the "race time") - it looks like there were some people who took a rather loose interpretation of what "skateboarding" meant, with times that look remarkably like "I'm going to run across the grass between the timing gates"   All of your attempts will appear as laps. Congratulations to Reuben Smith who showed that M50 is where it's at if you want to get consistently fast (and non-cheaty) times.

    Finally, we've updated the results for the overall in the 2023 Wellington Enduro Series. There are some rather close point totals, and it's all there for you data geeks to trawl through. We'll be arranging an end-of-season shindig, so look out for an update on that soon.

    We had amazing support from our sponsors for yesterday's race, especially Brendan "Bubbles" Clark and his business Best Build Construction, who offered a $3,000 spot prize for the person with the best DIY nightmare sob story. Also thanks to our other spot prize supporters Carters, Fasthouse, Capital Cycles, and our event supporters Garage Project and Switched On Bikes.

    And a final shout-out to our volunteers and the trail crew from Wainui Trail Project.

    It was great to have so many people come out for a fun day of racing at the 2023 Wainui Enduro yesterday. And while the trails were mixed in terms of traction, it seemed that there were a lot of smiles down at the race village for prize giving.
    o's definitely not regretting including McMillan's in the hard course 

    There were some blistering times set on the trails, with Elliot Smith taking overall fastest (in a time of 13:21.66), and Abbie Bull fastest woman.

    In 2021 the team from Get Lost Cycling welcomed the return of racing to Mt Victoria with the inaugural Mt Vic Enduro. We all had such a great time that they're doing it all again, only better!

    Wellington is blessed with some of the world's best central city riding and Matairangi is the jewel in the crown. With everything from flowing berms and jumps through to roots and chutes there's something for everyone.

    We wanted to showcase the hill and trails that we love, so take a deep breath, make yourself comfortable, and relax as you take on a (timed) tour of some of Wellington's finest!

    The race will be held on the 23rd of April, and entries are available now at the Welly MTB Club events website.

    All race proceeds are to support the Matairangi Trail Builders and the great work that they do.

    Entries are now open for the Wainui Enduro, which will be held on the 15th of April. Wainui is one of those trail areas that just works whether it's dry or wet (and let's be honest, it's not been the driest summer so far). We've got a great selection of trails on offer, including hopefully a few options that you haven't seen before.

    This weekend at the #waimapihienduro we also had the first presentation of the Alex Chronis memorial award. 

    If we could describe Alex Chronis (or Wombat as he was known by many) in one word it would be impossible. He was an amazing man with as many talents as he had passions, he wore an infectious smile, and always had a good yarn to share that would either leave you laughing or truly amazed. He was a humble person with an honest passion for helping anyone who needed a hand and touched the lives of all the people who knew him. As a Junior National Champion in both XC and DH heralding from Island Bay this prize is support the next outstanding local rider.

    He passed away a year ago, and with the support of Giro and Worrall's we were honoured to have a lasting memorial of Wombat and what he meant to all of us. The award will be presented at the Waimapihi enduro each year for the most outstanding junior.

    This years recipient is Noah McLaughlin, who received a Giro Insurgent helmet. We were stoked that Alex‘s family was able to make it along to the presentation.

    The award will be presented each year to the most outstanding junior competitor.

    Thanks to everyone for coming out to the 2023 MyRide Waimapihi Enduro on Saturday. We had great weather, great trails, and some awesome smiles at the bottom of the hill.

    At the end of the day, our Queen and King of the hill were Khulan Tumen and Bryn Dickerson, with the fastest overall male and female times.

    There's plenty of photos arriving on the gram, so if you've still got some to post, make sure to tag @wellymtb and #waimapihienduro #wes2023
