“Wideopen Weekend Wrap up”
Nukeproof supported Team Wideopenmag had a cracking weekend of racing – with three big results in three countries.
Irishman Kelan Grant made the big trip over to the TweedValley in Scotland to take on the Vallelujah enduro. Kelan piloted his big-wheeled Nukeproof Mega 290 to take the overall senior win and the fastest time on all but one stage. Read Kelan’s full race report over on Wideopen here.
Over in the Forest of Dean, young gun downhill Morgan Tyrrell had a blast at the Mini Downhill season final. He took his Pulse to second place in 15-16 boys, just 0.14 behind first place. You can read the Pinkbike report and watch the full highlights video here
Last but not least, legendary Scottish downhiller turned enduro racer Chris Hutchens was out in New Zealand to race round 1 of the Enduro World Series. The team is focused on UK racing and events, but couldn’t resist an adventure to the land of the Long White Cloud. It’s not often you get to race an enduro in a jungle, right?
Hutch raced the Enduro World Series in the jungle of Rotorua – an event he called the “toughest World Series race ever!”. Despite brutal conditions, Hutch’s winter of training paid off and he took his Mega 275 to 29th place overall – an amazing result for him and for the team.
