It was a solo trip for me this time to Perth, as Saya decided to skip this round to better prepare herself for our Europe stint coming up.

クラス:男子エリート

結果:優勝

2年ぶりのオセアニア選手権。普段は5月にオーストラリア全国大会と一緒に行われるが、今年は1月にニュージーランドで行われた。コースはオークランドから2時間ほど離れたテ・アワムトゥ。ニュージランドチームのハイパファーマンスセンターから15分ほど離れたコースであるため、彼達は毎週乗っているコース。ニュージーチームからはタフな競争が予想された。

オーストラリアからはナショナルチャンピオンのブランドン・テヒコと2018年オセアニアチャンピオンのコリー・フリーズウィックを含むトップライダーも集まり、レベルの高い大会と...
