Jaine dominates six hour bike race


Nelson’s Henry Jaine dominated the Kaiteriteri six-hour Mountainbike Race at the weekend.

Event organiser David Ryder says he was so fast no team could keep up with him.

Jaine completed 16 laps of the challenging course in 5 hours 48 minutes and 54 seconds.

He was faster than any team of riders and completed one more lap than his nearest solo rider rival.

David says Jaine decided to ride alone this year after winning the team event with his father in 2015.

David says Jaine is an exceptional athlete but he was thrilled with the diversity of the 300-strong field that took the challenge.

Susie Wood took out the solo women’s event by completing 13 laps in five hours 43 minutes and 39 seconds.

She also completed one more lap than her nearest rival.
