The GT team opens up the Episode 1 of Season 2 at full throttle in New Zealand with the first round of EWS and Crankworx! Heli drops, swimming holes, wet and wild trail conditions, and a couple of podium finishes would await the team in Rotorua. Wyn, motivated by sibling rivalry, pushed the pace at EWS and walked away the win in his home country, while Martin would end the day in 13th. Anneke finished 10th overall in the women’s Pro race. Rachel showed true grit pushing it on race day, but was sidelined after stage 4 due to a broken finger and hard crash. Pushing through a muddy conditions, Brook and Jackson placed 24th and 25th in the IXS DH finals. At Crankworx Whip Off Championships, T-Mac would send it into 3rd!
