...not. Every other year the Ak Attack MTB rogaine is NOT in the Akatarawas. This year is one of those years, and the 4/8hr event is on 25 Jan. It's actually in Belmont Regional Park, EQ-created terrain between Lower Hutt and Porirua. And in another departure, you don't have to stay with your bike. In fact you don't have to HAVE a bike, which opens up a new element of strategy. Normal entries due tomorrow at

Makara peak Mudslingers (Simon Kennett and John Randal) returned from a gap to win the 8hr Ak Attack again, in extremely hot conditions today. But it was a foot-only team Lightning Speed Robots in 2nd place, and another foot team won the 4hr category. Preliminary results have been posted.
