Take on the famous Rotorua trails with the U19 New Zealand Downhill National Champion Keegan Wright on his fresh ride with team Giant/Fox. At only 17 years of age he's already got a hell of a lot of titles under his belt and has his eyes set on the DH World Cups this year and will be touring a few selected rounds with World Cup Team Giant/Fox, flying as a junior under the wing of Danny Hart and Andrew Neethling this season, so be ready to see what he's all about!

 Ridiculous amount of poise at that speed. Also, that was an ass pucker crash if I've ever seen one.

 That was almost a season ender crash... whew! Sick riding!

 I thought that crash was going to produce more carnage than a rip in his nylons.....:-)

 As far as crashes go, I thought that was pretty friggen graceful.

 Awesome video, I'm sure the video does no justice on how fast and how technical the trail was.

 Having lived in ChCh for 6 months and ridden trails that are so tightly packed like the one he was riding where he nearly ate it, I think that not crashing in situations like that is the biggest benefit you get from riding in New Zealand. A lot of the trails there require you to push yourself on those uncomfortable sort of ways, if you want to clear the jump and keep the flow going. Maybe its why their DH riders are so good per capita? They know how to find that edge of control vs out of control better than most of us do?

 That triple XXX rock drop at the end of Boulderdash is way bigger than it looks here, not to mention getting around the bend when you land it, you nailed it!

 Absolutely right pearler, He makes these guys on single crowns look like snails! Search "Boulderdash Trail, Rotorua, New Zealand" on youtube, shows some preservative at just how fast Keegan was!
