Wairoa Head 2 Head

Another hot day in the sunny Bay of Plenty made way for the 2016 Wairoa Head 2 Head race. Exciting racing, great people and great weather made for a super fun day and an awesome finale to the Wairoa event. Congratulations to Jamie Sutton (Okere Falls) for claiming yet another title in the mens and to Jennifer Chrimes (GBR) for taking out the womens. Ryan Wilkins (Pongakawa) continued his dominant form from the time-trial the day before to claim the Junior title.
