James Climo finishes third at the New Zealand Mountain Bike National Championships
James had a very good ride at the Cycling New Zealand Mountain Bike Nationals, in Christchurch in the last weekend of February, eventually finishing in third place.
He led for the first half of the race and was well in control before a small error on the rock garden led to a fall and cost him the race. To his credit, he jumped back on and gave it everything to finish third, and we are very proud of his efforts.
He was naturally disappointed, but that is the reality of racing, and a good lesson in keeping focused and to keep going, no matter what.
Congratulations once again to James, and we wish him well in his upcoming races.
