2010 Cateye Moonride successful for Waitakere!

Cateye Moonride is one of the iconic mountain bike events that simply could not be missed. As usual Waitakere community was well represented, both in terms of quantity and quality of our teams! AvantiPlus Waitakere shop team finished 2nd in the category and so did the brave girs from team WheelyForknKranked.  After fantastic effort Duane and his team Bro Smuggle won Bronze in 24h Open.  Another Bronze medal went to team Wheely Wheelyfast with locals Bruce Weir and Alan Postance on board.  Jafakids came home with a good collection of silverware as well,  team Up Your Arse finishing 1st in 12h Mixed (and 3rd overall!) and team Jafas to Go placing 3rd in 12h Juniors.  Several other local teams missed the podium but still managed to place high among over 400 competitors.  Finally, there were plenty of personal feats!  Gary “Hutch” Hutchinson completed his first 6h solo race and Andrew Jameson finished 9th in 24h Solo despite serious eye problems.

Big thanks to Craig and Rochelle for organizing the logistics, TeAtatu Soccer Club for their large tent, all the team members for high spirits and the weather for staying dry! Next event: Taupo Day-Night Thriller!
