Norco Factory Racing’s Sam Blenkinsop and Joe Smith are set for racing this weekend’s Enduro World Series Rotorua event. After a week of testing and training aboard their new team built Norco Range C7.1 bikes, the guys are feeling ready for the rumble in the jungle. With a few new sponsors linking up with the team for 2017, this is just a peek at their newly team built Norco Range C7.1.

bigquotesI am not sure if I’ll race my Range 27.5 or 29—it’s a tough call. They both offer an advantage in certain areas. Either would do the job… but it’s awesome having the option. Either way, I’m feeling ready to get out with the boys!Sam Blenkinsop

bigquotesNew team, new bike, new sponsors, and my first time in New Zealand. All around, looking forward to kicking it off this weekend at the EWS. Sam, Henry, and I have been out riding in the New Zealand forest/jungle, and it’s been nothing but hero dirt and massive grins! I’m definitely loving my new green machine! That bike is a weapon.Joe Smith

You will see more of Sam, Joe, and Henry next week, as they continue in to Crankworx Rotorua. They’ll most likely throw a leg over their Range’s for selected events there as well. Until then, it’s all switches to giv’er.

 Even though it wasn't a full bike check, I would've enjoyed something more. At least some bike details.

 I had the pleasure of seeing the 29er in person earlier this month in North Van, wow, even though it was an early test bike, it looked the business. Such a cool looking bike, and for the first time in many years has me looking at Norco again. Well done!

 Hey Blenki How about 29 front and 27 on the rear best of both worlds

 Curious why Norco couldn't manufacture a one-piece rocker link.

 I'm cursed with dicking up brand new bikes. Crashed so hard on my Jedi the first ride I swear the thing landed all the way down in the parking lot.
