Dunedin, New Zealand
Hi I'm Sam Hope & my current bike of choice is the Pivot Mach 6. I live in Dunedin and I ride mostly Enduro with a bit of downhill, XC and cyclocross thrown in there.
2022 has gone well for me and I have been stoked to be riding for Pivot Cycles NZ and Bike House Dunedin (formally Cycle World Dunedin) the support from an awesome bike brand a local shop have been awesome!
Race highlights for me from the year have 3 Peaks Enduro, Linger and Die Downhill and Enduro in Alexandra. We also had some fun smaller local Funduros and Herbert Funduro. And highlight trips such as Nelson, Cable Bay and Middle Hill over Christmas. A Herbert weekend, riding in Alexandra and others.
In February 2023 my partner Sam Paris and I are heading over to Tasmania to race the Trans Tas. This is a 5 day Enduro run over 3 different locations in Tasmaina. We are over there for 2 and a half weeks so will also get to do some exploring of our own.
My favourite places to ride are Alexandra, Nelson and Craigieburn. I really enjoy riding steep trails and tight corners.
