Work has begun on the second NZ Ihatove Adventure Trial, to be held in Nelson on the 19th & 20th of February 2011.
The 2011 poster and entry form are now available on the Ihatove page along with the new format for the event next year.
We are very happy to announce that it has been confirmed that special guest riders for the 2011 event will be Mick Andrews and long time friend and Yamaha development rider Haruo Kimura. Mick is in NZ for a 5 weeks tour and will also ride in Upper Hutt, Wanganui, Kapiti and Hamilton
This has been made possible by the efforts of Robert Cochrane and Yasuo Manzawa with the additional support of many.
The Pioneer M/C Club are host to Mick and wife Jill in the week prior to the NZ Ihatove Adventure Trial, when Mick will be offering coaching, and this will be a great opportunity to rub shoulders with this world-famous icon of our sport.
The NZ Ihatove Adventure Trial event will be catering for all levels of rider and promises to be a fun-filled occasion.
The sections and trail are well underway with most of the markers already laid out. We look forward to greeting all the riders again in February and we will update you with more news as it comes to hand.
