Viva Bike Vegas
A BIG Welcome to the gang from Bike Vegas. These guys are the new Santa Cruz dealers for single-track heaven we all know as Roto-Vegas. If you’ve been wondering what happened to Rob Smail, you’ll spot him during ‘office hours’ at Bike Vegas. Outside ‘office hours’ you’ll spot him thrashing his new polished Nomad down ‘hot cross buns’.

Nomad (it’s still about the bike)
Don’t believe it’s the ONE bike? I got overtaken up hill by Chris Burr who was riding my Nomad at the 3rd round of the top of the south series. He over took me in the single track too. Chris is a very talented rider. He beat me by 3 minutes too.

Racing News
A round-up of results. Dale Cragg, 1st Vet in the first round of the Auckland DH series. The new boys at the Counties club are doing good, lots of entries too. Amanda Gordon, 2nd in K1 and 2nd open women at the second round of the Auckland XC series. Mike Stylianou 2nd Vet1 in the third round of the “top of the south” series.

Carbon Fetish?
Do you have a thing about carbon? Ibis cycles are back in the bike biz. Moving away from their titanium and steel root’s and now doing some funky stuff with carbon. Check and then give me a call.

More Battle Scars for Val.
Ahh, long weekends. More riding, new bikes and single track. A quick ring around and we were sorted. Sandra, myself and Brenda “Bob” Clapp head out in ‘Val’ for a day of single track heaven in the Queen Charlotte. A quick drive over the Whangamoa’s and we’d be there. What the’!? I can see Bobs bike trying to swing past the drivers window. A dent in the roof and the bike’s OK. We can still ride. Got to book Val for some TLC.

Where do I sign up?
Welcome to the team, Andrew East. Andrew is still assembling his Blur XC, ‘weighting’ for the right parts to make his bike fast. What took you so long mate?

Thanks again for your support,
Mike Stylianou & Sandra Williams
PS. Thanks Rob Robskoppe, we like your bikes.
