Fishing for wild pigs When Paul Dayman went fishing on the Motueka River last week he was hoping to catch a wild trout – instead he ended up with a wild pig. Paul and his partner Marion Whyte, both of Tahunanui, were enjoying a peaceful day fishing on the river under blazing sunshine and with the sound of birds all around. Then, while standing on the side of the river with their fishing rods, a 35kg wild boar came barrelling down from the

bushes, swam across the river and charged Paul. He says he wasn’t quite sure what to think other than “that’s unusual, wild pigs don’t do that”. Within a minute the boar had charged at Paul three times, each occasion its tusks ripping his flesh but he managed to stay on his feet. “I thought after the first charge he would just carry on but he didn’t, he kept coming back and I thought, ‘well that was a bit anti-social’.”

Andrew Board Editor After three hits on Paul the boar focussed on Marion who was about five metres away and holding onto the fishing rods. “I had no idea of the danger,” she says. “It all happened so fast, I was still trying to get my head around the fact that pigs can swim.

I just thought I’d shoo it back to Paul, he wanted it.” The boar obliged and began to reacquaint itself with Paul, who in the meantime had just enough time to pick up a boulder and slammed it down on his head as it charged in for the fourth time. The pig didn’t flinch and Paul ended up on his back with the pig gouging his foot.

“When I was down I thought I was in trouble and that there is no second place. The way he kept coming in, he wasn’t going to stop. One of us had to be stopped and I preferred that it wasn’t going to be me because if it was me, Marion was next on the list.” With Paul’s arm now in the boar’s mouth he grabbed its leg and ear and wrestled it to the water’s edge, about a metre away and held the boar in the river, trying to drown it. After a few minutes of holding the boar under water Paul says it finally stopped moving and he was able to walk out of the river with blood streaming from his arms and legs.

after the incident, Paul and Marion travelled back to the Motueka Valley to have barbequed pork with Steve and his family. “I’m glad he didn’t burn the bugger,” he jokes. “But I do feel sorry for the pig, one of the back legs had evidence of dog bites so I’m assuming that it was bailed up and somehow got away. “He must have had a pretty hell morning already and then to get taken out by some 57 year-old in jandals isn’t the best way to go.” Paul says he’d like to know the first part of the story and if anyone lost a jet-black 35kg boar with very visible tusks near where the Baton River joins the Motueka River. “I’m interested to know how all this actually started and how far he’d come from.”

New Zealand’s deepest known cave has been discovered near Nelson, but it’s fallen just short of being the deepest in the Southern Hemisphere. A team of four cavers made the connection between the Nettlebed and Stormy Pot caves on Mount Arthur last week, confirming it was one cave and at a total length of 1200 metres. But it falls just short of 1264 metre long Meruc Cave in Papua New Guinea. Team leader Kieran McKay says the discovery was only a matter of time. “We found Stormy Pot in January 2011 and within a few months we’d explored 10km of the cave and when we put that map on the same map as the Nettle Bed system we realised that the caves were actually the same so we just had to find a way through the rocks.” On the last day of their five day exploration, the team found a small chamber with a small crack that had a draught pouring from it. Kieran worked away trying to clear the rock and make the hole big enough

Kids go back to school

FrEE chEck Up For kiDS: Nelson parents whose child is about to start school for the first time should take advantage of a free B4 School Check, says the district health board. In the last six months 865 Nelson Marlborough four year olds received a free B4 School Check. More info at: nz/your-health/services-and-support/ health-care-services/well-child-tamariki-ora/about-b4-school-check. chAriTY Shop rElocATES: After 25 years, the Save The Children Gift Shop in Halifax St is relocating. The present building, owned by Gibbons Construction, is to have earthquake strengthening completed and on Wednesday February 5 the shop will reopen at 56A Buxton Square, near the rear entrance to Postie Plus. hEAlTh boArD SUrplUS: Half-way through the financial year the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board is $3m ahead of budget and on track to make a surplus for the first time in three years. At a board meeting this week it was revealed that the DHB had a surplus of $1.46m at the end of December. NMDHB receives funding of $428m and provides hospital and community health services to 140,000 people.

“Mind that child”, because it’s back to school for most kids around Nelson this week. Students at most primary and intermediate schools are starting the school year today, while colleges in the city started back a week ago. The new term means school crossings are back in action and students will be cycling and walking to and from school, so police are urging motorists to keep an eye out for kids when they are behind the wheel. Police road policing services team leader senior sergeant Grant Andrews says police will be doing everything possible to ensure children remained safe heading back to school and will begin a high visibility operation to monitor speed around schools. He also reminded drivers of the 4km tolerance around schools and the 20km limit when passing a school bus picking up or dropping off children. “At the end of the day we want to see all children return to school safely. All drivers need to be aware that children are returning and school crossings will be operating again so paElla Harley, 5, of Stoke with mum Christine and sister Ava, tience will be required if there 3, can’t wait to start school today.

He says officers will be checking that all passengers in vehicles are wearing an appropriate seatbelt or child restraint and that conditions of driver’s licence are being met. “We know a lot of students on restricted licences are tempted to give their mates a lift and that’s going to cost them.” Police will also be cracking down on motorists texting or calling while driving and urge parents to ensure their younger children are adequately supervised when travelling to and from school. “Parents also need to ensure their child has the road safety skills to ride a bike to school or to cross the road on their own,” he said. Ella Harley, 5, is just one of thousands of kids across the city that is heading to school today and mother Christine says she’s more than ready to start her first year at Stoke Primary. “We’re starting school, yes and she’s so ready for it.

Crossing refuge delights elderly residents Four Kensington Court residents say they’re “delighted” the council listened to their request for a pedestrian refuge on Main Rd Stoke. Last May Nelson Weekly reported that the four ladies were preparing to lobby the council over the refuge because they struggled to safely cross the road, especially in their walking frames, in one go. “It’s a busy

road and if you get a break in one side of the traffic you usually don’t on the other side as well,” says Daphne Stevens. The council told the ladies money for a new refuge would be included in that year’s plan and in early December work began on the refuge, much to their surprise. “We didn’t think it would happen so quickly and it was great to see them there,” says

The drive between Westport and Greymouth usually only takes 90 minutes, but a group of 12 intrepid scooter riders turned it into a fourday expedition as they completed the fourth Survivor Scooter Challenge. Survivor Scooter is a charity ride that incorporates some of the South Island’s roughest off-road routes as well as a series of challenges for the scooter riders. This year the riders left Westport on January 22 and ended up in Greymouth four days later after detouring through the Denniston Plateau, Mackley River, Waipuna Caves and Lake Brunner. “It’s the fourth challenge we have had and it was by far the hardest,” organiser Jason Monopoli says. “This year we had a hard track to ride every day - there were no easy days on the road.” Jason says the riders and support crew had to use all of their “MacGyver skills” just to negotiate the tracks and keep the 50cc scooters on the road. He says it was a challenge but all 12 riders completed the journey safely on their original scooters. “The first big challenge was rigging up a flying fox using the winches on the four-wheel-drive support vehicles to get the scooters across

the Mackley River. It was hard going up Big River too - it was pretty wet so we had to repair a few drowned and damaged scooters. “It’s not really a ride for scooter enthusiasts, It’s more of a ride for like-minded adventurers really,” Jason says. He says visiting the Waipuna Caves was one of the highlights of the journey, although riders also enjoyed the scooter-cross race and jousting competition. The winning teams of those competitions received prizes from sponsors who helped the challenge raise $6000 for the Nelson Ark. Although Jason had intended making the fourth Survivor Scooter Challenge the last, he says the riders made it clear they wanted another one next year. “I wasn’t that keen to organise another one so I thought if I made this one really hard it would put everyone off. But it didn’t work, the riders had so much fun they are already pressuring me to have another one.” Jason says the journey was filmed by the four-wheel drive support crew and will be screened later in the year with all welcome to attend. Email Jason at jason@orangedog. for details. The DVD set of the journey will also be available for a $10 donation.

‘DIY’ funerals on the rise in Nelson Andrew Board

A Nelson man says more people are opting for a “DIY funeral” to farewell their loved ones, but admits it’s hardly a popular choice. In fact only seven “private” cremations took place at the Nelson City Council-owned facility at the Wakapuaka Cemetery last year, with the massive majority of the region’s funerals involving the region’s two biggest funeral homes, Marsden House and Shone and Shirley. Nelson’s Paul Briggs offers information on how people can do their own DIY funeral or have control over the process when a funeral director is involved. Paul says he’s helped several friends with low cost funerals and says there was a bit of ground work to find out how it could be done, information he’s now willing to offer to others for free. That includes what paper work needs to be filled in, how to arrange a cremation at the Nelson City Council-owned facility at the Wakapuaka Cemetery and how to access cheaper coffins. He says it can be done for less than $900, without compromising a meaningful “send-off ”.


Over the past year he’s had around 50 people call him to ask for details about funeral options. Francis Day, of Marsden Funeral Homes, says choice is a good thing but factors like health and safety as well as the psychological stress makes the reality of a DIY funeral unlikely for most. “Talking about things in theory is one thing,” says Francis. “Putting them into practice might well be another. If the issue is around cost, then the potential of disabling psychological cost to family members really should be taken into account. “Apart from providing emotional support and guidance, funeral directors are trained to deal with things that most people wouldn’t even consider,” he says. Nelson City Council says 211 cremations were done at the council facility last year, but just seven were private with the rest from commercial operators. Marsden House owns its own crematorium at Gardens of the World in Hope.

Nelson’s ‘Broods’ release EP with Grammy winner Broods’ much anticipated self-titled EP has gone to number one on iTunes just hours after its release. The EP features six songs, including hit single “Bridges”, which is currently eighth on the New Zealand Singles Charts, has received airplay on radio stations across the globe, and has racked up nearly 500,000 plays on the band’s SoundCloud page. “Never Gonna Change”, their second single, is the opening track.

The EP was co-written and co-produced by Grammy winner Joel Little, who teamed up with Lorde for her platinum selling album Pure Heroine, which is bound to increase the band’s exposure. The Nelson duo, comprising of siblings Georgia and Caleb Nott, signed with Capitol Records in the United States and Polydor in the United Kingdom last year. International media have been quick to make comparisons between Broods and

Lorde, and have also praised the former Garin College students for their early singles. “New Zealand brother-sister duo make, ahem, brooding synth-pop that makes sadness sound quite lovely,” said an article in the UK’s Guardian, while Billboard in the US asked whether they were “New Zealand’s next pop wonder”, and this week encouraged readers to check out their EP. “Looking for some gorgeous pop music to dive into and subsequently

peddle to your friends this coming weekend? Look no further than Broods’ self-titled debut EP.” Broods are currently performing in Australia and will head to the United States for shows in Hollywood, San Francisco, Brooklyn and New York at the end of the month. Broods’ self-titled EP is now available for download on iTunes for $9.99. Their first full length album is expected this year.

Whales enjoying a Nelson summer too Shane Anderson has made a habit of “being in the right place at the right time”, particularly when it comes to orca whale sightings. On Thursday he was out paddleboarding around Nelson Haven when he came across a pod of about “five or six” orcas. “One of them knocked into me. A baby calf knocked into me, it was quite curious and came over,” he says. “It was pretty exhilarating but quite scary at the same time, knowing that they’re very big.” Shane was out training along with fellow paddleboarder Rachel Pike when the pair’s “calculated guess” resulted in an hour alongside the whales, which generally

We followed them from where the baches are on the Boulderbank back towards Port Nelson when

all the boats turned up. They came right across Rocks Rd and by the Back Beach.” It was about this time last year that the owner of Kitesurf Nelson managed to take a “selfie” out on the water with a pod of orca. There had been numerous other sightings of the orca

pod throughout the week around Nelson and Cable Bay, and Trish Grant of the Department of Conservation says it’s certainly not uncommon at this time of the year. “It’s to do with the time of the year and that they’re feeding on eagle rays,” she says.

World’s best gearboxes made in Tahuna The smell of metal and grease hits your senses before the wonder of five massive machines stuffed into Bruce Verdon’s tiny Tahunanui workshop takes over. Bruce leased the workshop after arriving in Nelson eight years ago. His plan was to run a machine work shop similar to what he had in his homeland of South Africa, but with no contacts and no reputation there was also no work. So he decided to branch out, do something different and as a result Bruce is known around the world for making the best high performance racing gearboxes. His company TT Industries has now sold more than 600 gearboxes around the world, mainly in classic racing motorbikes and racing cars. Bruce says he hasn’t even thought about developing key markets because demand is keeping his five staff pretty busy already. “We don’t want everyone to know about it at the same time. We’re trying to keep it quiet at this stage but the United States will be a big market for us, no one there does what we do,” says Bruce. His gearboxes have won titles all over the world, including New Zealand, Australia and Europe, and are used in every New Zealand V8 Racing car. They are

also used by World 500cc Grand Prix champion Kevin Schwantz and his expertise got him invited to race in the famed Isle of Mann motorbike race last year. It all started when Bruce was left struggling for work. He designed a gearbox for classic motorbikes and when it was finished took it to a race in Australia to show the owners of the bikes his design. “I borrowed a table and made some pamphlets and the people just said ‘wow, this is want we want, where have you been all our lives? Here’s the money, when can I have one?’ Within three months he had 30 orders, each for around $5000. He took that to the bank and was able to secure a loan to buy the equipment needed and started producing two a month until he took on more staff. Since then demand has exploded and Bruce travels to races in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe to drum up business, but it’s hardly needed. Word of mouth means the orders roll in unabated. Bruce says he saw a limited market in the classic motorbikes so developed a sequential

That was even more popular than the motorbike gearbox, so more staff were employed and more machines bought. The gearboxes are used in cars for circuit racing, drifting and even in speedway cars. He says at a recent test at Hampden Downs the gearbox shaved two seconds off the lap time of a race car. And there’s more to come.

still surprises him but not the performance. “I know they work well but I didn’t expect so many people wanting them, that did surprise me.” He says the future is bright for his company and although busy, and spending most of his weekends out of town at various race meetings – he’s been to four already this year – he’s thrilled. “It’s really good, yeah, really good. I’m happy and proud.”

Bruce says when the business moves into a purpose-built building in Echodale Pl he will be able to build more gearboxes and expand even further. “Soon we’ll have a gearbox for cars with more than 1000 horsepower and many of our designs are unique to us and the reports we get back from clients are good. I can walk down the pits and no one looks at me with daggers in their eyes, let’s put it that way.” The popularity of his product

Tuesday January 21 The Citizens Advice Bureau have had a great response since appearing in an article in the Nelson Weekly two weeks ago, seeking interest from new volunteers. They've had a number of people put their hand up, but are still looking for more. Training is coming up but charperson Robin Smith says the introduction of a new programme means you can join them at any time of the year. Left: The Nelson Police team pull against defending champions Nelmac during the Hospice Tug of Peace at Trafalgar St last Thursday. Right is Paul Jeffries of the Nelson Marlborough District Health Board celebrates after they won a heat during the Tug of Peace. Photos: Andrew Board.

Tug of Peace pulls out the best of locals For 15 years it's one of the more popular fundraisers in Nelson and the 2014 edition was no exception. More than one hundred people gathered to watch teams from various Nelson businesses and government departments to see who was the region's top tug of “peace” champion. The early money was on four time de-

fending champions Nelmac and after they breezed past Nelson Police it was obvious that it would take a mightly effort to upset the champs. Playing in honour of a recently passed staffer as well as a wife of one of their workmates, Nelmac looked unstoppable beating a burly Talley's team in the final after an eight second battle.

Organiser Phil Wright says once again the event was a huge success, raising money and profile for the hospice. “My highlight was for Nelmac, this year was special because of the two deaths in the company. One of these years another team will pull together a team to beat them,” he says. “Maybe next year.”

Tuesday January 7 Homeless hound Rex, who appeared in the Nelson Weekly at the start of January has been successfully rehomed from the pound, through local volunteer organisation Second Chance. Tuesday September 24 After appearing in the Nelson Weekly and receiving huge support from readers, Detonate Youth's Mission encounter to the Philippines was a huge success. They have returned from Cebu, Central Philippines, where they spent their time caring for 50 street kids, visiting Red Cross’s Tent City, erected for displaced victims of Typhoon Yolanda, visiting an orphanage and school and more than 100 children who live beside the rubbish dump. They also ran a basic health workshop at the local school. A highlight of the trip, was meeting the youth groups sponsored child, Ernesto.

Richard's clinker restored and ready for boat show Everytime retired boat builder Richard Winn puts his 1960s clinker dinghy into the water he takes a sail down memory lane. Richard, who is taking his 16-foot restored clinker “Ripples” to this weekend's New Zealand Antique and Classic Boat Show at Lake Rotoiti, used to sail clinkers when he was young. So when he saw the run-down clinker lying in a boat builders yard in Picton in 2005 he couldn't resist the urge to take it home and restore it to its former glory. “We used to play around in clinkers when I was a kid. They were good fun. “They stopped building them after that but as the years go by you get to appreciate the time it takes to build them. So when I saw it in a run-down state at Waikawa I decided to buy it and restore it.” Richard says the boat was originally built in the early 1960s by an apprentice boat builder working at Jorgensens Boat Yard in Waikawa Bay. It was constructed using a variety of native timber which Richard has spent four years restoring. “It was falling apart so I stripped all the paint and gutted the inside and laid a new deck. I used macrocarpa but it's still got the original kahikatea hull. “It took me heaps of time and money to restore the boat but that doesn't come into it. It's something you do because you are passionate about it.” Richard says he is a member of the Picton Clinker and Classic Boat Club and regularly takes the boat out sailing. He named the boat Ripples because it cruises at about five or six knots and cuts through the water so smoothly that it barely creates a wake. Richard will join about 80 other boat enthuNZ NEW

Simon Bloomberg Reporter siasts who are taking their antique and classic vessels to Lake Rotoiti for this weekend's show. “There will be the usual range of boats including cedar kayaks, jet boats from the 60s, clunky clinkers and veteran wooden yachts,” show coordinator Pete Rainey says. Another attraction this year is the new Nelson Lakes Classic Boat Museum, alongside the Clinker Café and gift shop complex at the St Arnaud village. It will be open with boating displays all weekend. The NZ Antique and Classic Boat Show is now in its 16th year, and continues to grow in the number and quality of craft presented, as well as the number of people coming to view the boats and the action. Judging will take place on Saturday, ahead of an evening awards ceremony at the Alpine Lodge. At stake is the Jens Hansen Trophy where the judges are after good looks as well as history, construction and a boat with a story to tell. Other awards include prizes for best new restoration, best steamboat, best jet-propelled craft and best themed display. Races will be held for yachts, row boats, seagull motored dinghies, poppers, canoes, child rowers and swimmers. The show will be held at Kerr Bay between 9am and 7pm this Saturday and Sunday with admission $15 for adults for the day or $20 for the weekend with school children free. Tickets from gate sales only. No dogs allowed.

Hop on a bike and give cycling a go!

month Bike Wise month encourages you to give cycling a go. Go to an organised event or just hop on your bike and explore our region’s fantastic network of off road cycleways and cycle lanes. Heather and George Terry of Wakefield are pictured at the 2012 opening of the cycle bridge over the Wairoa River.

There’s no such thing as a free lunch but on Go By Bike Day on February 12 there will be a free breakfast for anyone who gets on their bike and calls into one of the participating bike shops around Nelson and Tasman. Go By Bike Day is a one-day event held every February when thousands of New Zealanders leave their cars in the garage and cycle to work or school. It is just one of the many activities planned for February’s Bike Wise Month which is a national programme aimed at promoting cycling as a fun, healthy and safe way to travel. Go By Bike Day is being organised by Nelson City and Tasman District councils in partnership with the New Zealand Transport Authority and the region’s cycle retailers. It will offer a free, healthy breakfast and spot prizes to cyclists riding into the “fuel stops� between 7am and 9am. “It’s about getting people to give cycling a go and see how easy it is to get where you need to go by bicycle,� says Nelson City Council Works and Infrastructure Committee chairman Eric Davy. “So when you wake up on Wednesday morning, leave the car keys or bus pass on the kitchen counter and join hundreds of other Nelsonians cycling to work, school, or wherever, on Go By Bike Day and get a free breakfast to enjoy on the way.� However, Eric says commuters shouldn’t need any extra encouragement to go by bike because Nelson and Tasman are such fantastic places for cycling. Not only do we have a great climate for cycling we have a growing network of offroad cycleways and cycle lanes to make cycling more enjoyable and safer. Eric says Nelson City Council cycling strategy has a vision that “cycling becomes a safe, convenient and commonplace way of getting around Nelson� and the numbers show that vision is being realised.

Over the BikeWise month Get Moving will be running a family fun ride in Motueka (1pm Feb 16th), and Golden Bay (10am Feb 23rd), and then a Bike, Beach and BBQ event out at Rabbit Island (2pm March 2nd). See the website for the details - and look out for a great new event using Nelson off-road cycle paths later in March! Check out the Get Moving website for information on choosing a bike and cycle clothes, starting riding, and where to ride. The site also lists local cycling events and riding groups and clubs.

“The 2013 census data shows 8.7 per cent of the Nelson workforce bikes to work compared to 2.9 per cent nationally and that Nelson has experienced stronger growth in cycling than the rest of New Zealand.� Tasman District Council community recreation adviser, Mike Tasman-Jones says the Get Moving Big Bike Tune Ups are also being held in conjunction with Bike Wise activities. They will continue in February and March so cyclists can get their bikes back on the road in time for the Family Fun Rides around the region.

Spot prize


Ride On is a cycle initiative supported by Tasman District Council, Nelson City Council, Nelson Marlborough District Health Board and the NZ Police. We use qualified cycle instructors to run three main programmes focusing on cycle skills and safety; Cycle safety training to young people aged 8 to 12, Adult learn to ride courses, and the very popular Cycle Skills Trailer.

Mike says the Big Bike Tune Ups are a safety initiative designed to encourage new and past bike riders to get their unused bikes out of storage and head along to one of the fun rides. Bike mechanics will give the bike a quick maintenance check to make sure it is safe and road-worthy and fits the rider. If a bike needs more than a tune up riders will be advised what’s required.

The free checks have already been held at three Skatepark Tour events and will also be held at Family Fun Rides at Motueka and Golden Bay in February and a family Bike, Beach and BBQ event at Rabbit Island Sunday 2 March. Mike says these rides will be easy and suitable for most ages, skills and fitness levels and will include spot prizes and giveaways.

Community Association (VCA). The festival is free and designed to be fun for all ages, with live music, activities for the whole family and a chance to get creative with interactive activities. Organisers are expecting a huge turnout and with the forecast set for sun, the bands all booked and plenty of stallholders lined up for the day, Andrea Barker of the VCA says the event will be a big one. “Victory’s Little Day Out is always really well supported by both the Victory community and the wider Nelson community. The event is a showcase of Victory and all of the different people that make it a great place to live.” This year’s festival has a special twist to it – the theme is ‘make some noise’. The idea is to bring along a handmade instrument and help Victory set the world record for Nelson's first amateur Trash percussion ensemble using recycled handmade instruments. This is definitely going to be an attempt to put Victory on the map when it comes to getting creative, so if you’ve wanted to be in a band, or have a hidden rocker in

GENERATIONS OF NELSON Brought to you by Marsden House

HORSE RACES IN NELSON The first magistrate, H.A. Thompson, stepped ashore from the Brougham in 1842 with a valuable thoroughbred brood mare. Within a year the town witnessed its first hurdle race,

1 February 1843. Four starters ran a course round the cathedral and through a flax swamp on Rutherford St. The favourite, George Duppa’s “Hairtrigger”, won by a length from Captain Wakefield’s “Sly Boots”.

Nayland College will drop back into the local under-18 rugby competition, ending a forgettable three year stint in the Press Cup that saw the first XV win just won game. With the likes of Mitchell Drummond starting at Nayland and then leaving for Nelson College, it was always hoped elevation into the Press Cup would allow the school to retain its best players by giving them the same opportunities as Nelson and Waimea College. But following the remarkable 17-15 win over Waimea in 2011, Nayland never won again. Their losses had become more respectable in 2013, with close results, including an agonizing 15-10 defeat by Burnisde High School. But insufficient player numbers resulted

he says. “But it’s a sustainability thing. You need to have the players coming through and the depth.” Kahu believed the cost of having a first XV in the Press Cup, where they were travelling out of town nearly every second week, would be near $60,000 – a huge expensive for a struggling team. “You’re looking at bus trips, accommodation, and food. It’s not cheap. When you’re looking at $60,000$70,000, and a lot of it is self funded, it’s a lot of money to play Press Cup.” It is unsure whether another team will replace Nayland in the 2014 Press Cup.

Nayland principal Rex Smith says the decision to withdraw from the competition was made last year. “We felt like we were struggling to compete at that level and we felt like we didn’t have the depth of players that you need to have a successful campaign,” he says. Tasman Rugby Union development officer Kahu Marfell says it was disappointing that Nayland’s Press Cup spell hadn’t been a successful one. “They climbed into it and last year I thought they improved throughout the competition.

Drag racer flips at 200km/h Ben Irwin of NZ Herald

A man who crashed his drag racer at 200km/h – flipping at least four times – says he’s “sweet”, despite bending the steel steering-wheel column with his chest on impact. Avon Compton was resting at his Nelson home yesterday after crashing his “one-off ” drag racer during the NDRA southern drag racing nationals at Motueka Airport on Saturday. The 56-year-old digger driver was doing a “by-run” at the time, which meant he was alone on the track and not actually racing. “Because I had a by-run, I could really wind the boost up and sit on the start line and really give it death,” Compton says. “It was really going well, [I was doing] massive burn-outs -

probably the best ones I’ve ever done - so we knew the car had a lot of power in it,” he said. “So we took off, right up in the rev-range, whacked it into second and it just started drifting slightly towards the grass.” Compton suspects that one of the tyres may have swollen in the sun, causing the car to peel off to the right. He tried to pull back but by then it was too late. The front of the car dug into the grass verge, flipping “at least three or four times” – the dust cloud was so big it was impossible to tell how many times it actually flipped over. “I went over the first time and that was quite gentle, then halfway through the second one I probably blacked out.” Compton’s chest hit the steering wheel on impact, causing the

half-inch steel steering rod to bend out of place. “[It hurt] a little bit, but I’m a tough character.” His only other injuries were heavy bruising from the seatbelt, a banged-up knee and a sore head from hitting the roll bar when the car flipped. Compton was thankful for the car’s safety features. “The car stood up really well. The roll cage did what it was supposed to do.” The “one-off ” car - which he said had cost about $50,000 to build - was written off. A 12-year veteran of the sport, Compton said the crash would most likely mark the end of his racing career. But the rollover wasn’t his biggest crash. As a youngster, he was in hospital for six months after the car he was in crashed into a power pole.

Cricket World Cup could ‘ruin’ athletics season

TUESDAY 4 February 2014


Mountain bike cup draws Top Guns

The aptly named Top Gun drew some of the country’s best mountainbikers to Nelson over the long weekend, and it was the biggest name of the lot that stole the show during the cross country. Anton Cooper, a former junior world champion, was the only elite men’s rider to go under the 1 hour 40 minute mark, with his time of 1h 37m 08sec winning by some margin. Nelson’s Ingrid Richter finished second in the women’s race with a time of 1h 40m 48sec, behind Queenstown’s Kate Fluker. The Top Gun competition, run by Nelson Mountain Biking Club, partnered up with the NZ Mountain Bike Cup as round two of the series. The event was designed to showcase the country’s top riders and the format allowed for downhill and cross country entrants to shine in their specialist discipline, before joining together for the combined Super D race which would decide who takes away the crown. The competition was held over three days, starting with the downhill at Kaka Hill. Nelson’s Kieran Bennett, representing Christchurch, took out the elite men’s race in 3 minutes and 1 second. Reuben Olorenshaw was the next best Nelson rider, finishing in fourth place with a time of 3 minutes and 3 seconds. Nelson pair Olivia Johnston and Amanda Pearce rounded out the elite women’s race in Reuben Olorenshaw compthird and fourth respectively. The Super D race was held yesterday, for results etes in the Top Gun event on visit Friday. Photo: Barry Whitnall/Shuttersport.
