Sue and her El Saltamontes loved the mud feast that was this years Karapoti. Her Salty as always performing in an exemplary manner  that epitomises the superlative quality of the Ventana mountain bike name. She smashed through mud lakes, rivers, knee deep mud holes and up slippery Sue sized ruts and rocky climbs to achieve 3rd place in her group in an aweosme time of 4:30!!

Lesser beasts both machine and human crumpled in awe , many suffering from the dreaded chain suck. Sue steamed past them, powering over the finish line with energy left to order food from her loyal supporter Robin. Sue has already marked her calendar to repeat the delicious torture next year.
