New Zealander Rory Mead Talks Enduro


New Zealander Rory Mead is in the United States trying out a few races and making a plan for a full season in 2012. Mead borrowed a spare Yamaha from friend and former GNCC champ Paul Whibley and finished sixth in his first-ever “American” enduro at the Train Robber National this past weekend. Here's what he said about the event:

“I just wanted to come over and see how it works over here, and hopefully I can line something up,” said Mead. “It was pretty wet and the track was pretty rough. It was quite different from back home; it was really tight and I was riding a big 450, but I really enjoyed it. I ride enduro back home but it’s different over here. We ride more of the World Enduro format. The hardest thing was the tight bush you had to navigate, but I’m quite pleased with how I finished.”
