Bridget from Ground Effect and her team of Santa Cruz riders, the Blury-eyed Heckling Nomads, go to Naseby....
Craig, Tim, Shane, Heather and Bridget all ventured south into a winter wonderland for the Naseby 12 hr race. 2 Nomads and 3 Blurs took to the single track and had a blast. The track started out slick and cold but then dried out and bedded into to become a fast and fun loop that left grins on faces every lap - despite the cold!
There was a great turn out with 150 teams, 864 riders and lots of spectators enjoying the race as much as the competitors. A brilliantly run event with a great atmosphere and facilities and the Santa Cruz bikes left their mark. First placing in the Mixed grade and 2nd overall, and one of the nomads was one of only 3 riders to do a sub 25 min lap.

Check out the latest Ground Effect catalogue (either online or in hard copy) and the cover star is Laurence Mote, not only is he a nice guy, Ground Effect employee and bloody good rider, he's also a Santa Cruz fan.
He's riding what is now referred to as the Blur LT classic (new LT is just around the corner), he's currently got a new Heckler, which he will rave about if asked.
The new Ground Effect catalogue looks good too, check them out http://www.groundeffect.co.nz/
