Tracey Hannah and Andrew Neethling Take on China 1

The scene in China has been growing steadily for the last 4-5 years and we were proud to be invited to take part in this race, filled with local pinners and top riders from Taiwan, Korea and Japan who were looking to win big in Asia.

Upon arrival it was clear the organizers had put a lot of effort into the expo - signing sessions with throngs of fans queued up and a slick looking arena with lots of brands on show.

Both Andrew and Tracey were unsure of the level of competition they might face so knew they would have to still push hard.

With multiple events on event including the 2X ( Duel racing ), a Whip Off and DH it was a great chance for Andrew and Tracey to keep their skills sharp between world cup races, and for amateurs to race against their heroes.

When it came down to it, Andrew ended up winning every event on the schedule but was pushed hard by the fired up locals who could certainly ride! Tracey produced a fantastic run in the final to take victory by a clear margin and impressed the fans during Whip Offs.

Andrew Neethling: “The fans were great on track, I’ve had an awesome time in China - the organizers treated us like royalty and it's great to experience a new country and culture and see how big the sport is becoming here.“

Tracey Hannah: “The experience has been insane, I can’t believe what the country is like - it blew my mind how many spectators came to watch. I’ve loved it here!"

We loved being a part of this event and want to thank all the amazing organizers and fans - we can’t wait to go back!
