South Island Downhill Cup #2- NE

Dirt Park, Wanaka, New Zealand, January 8-9, 2008

2007 Results   

Hagen and Rankin collect wins again in Round 2

Following up on their success from Round 1 at Coronet Peak, Scarlett Hagen and Nathan Rankin again showed their class at Round 2, held at the new Dirt Park venue in spectacular weather. Both took wins in the elite races.

Riding a newly built track winding through spectacular rock stacks and spiky Spaniard Grass, Rankin posted a time 3.9 seconds faster than his closest rival Michael Skinner, while Hagen nailed a big gap of 17.8 seconds over the second placed woman Helene Fruhwirth. Continuing his good form of last week Brook MacDonald again won the Under 19 men's race, with a time that would have put him in third in the elite men's field.

All three riders now have unbeatable leads in the three round competition, which concludes this weekend in Nelson. Reported conditions for Nelson are good with three recent days of rain providing a bit of moisture for the track's surface.

Following the end of the South Island Series, with its record numbers of participants, the North Island Subaru Downhill Cup will continue.
