XTERRA Rotorua 2011 was fantastic! Last weekend Wild Rock Wine Sponsored XTERRA and a team of Wild Rock and Craggy Range crew gave it their all and competed in New Zealand’s largest and most professional multidiscipline event held around the stunning Blue Lake and Whakarewarewa Forest of Rotorua.
We all had a great time and achieved great results. 11KM RUN Becky Driver, 21KM RUN; Nikki Fox 36th 2.13, Scott Tasker 51st 2.06. XTERRA TEAM 12th 3.05 (Swim: Tania Wotherspoon, Mountain bike: Ash Ireland, Run: Michael Henley).
The setting was picturesque with a stunning blue sky day, warm temperatures, and no wind. The Blue Lake was like glass and the forest green and lush. You couldn’t help but notice all the happy healthy people enjoying each other’s company (and a few Wild Rock Wines). The actual event ran seamlessly with pumping music and great commentary all day. Wild Rock Wine had a tent selling our wine and was also on tap at the VIP tent. It was wonderful to see some of NZ’s best athletes perform alongside beginners and weekend warriors – all smiling (or grimacing in pain) and enjoying themselves.
Wild Rock Wine was also well supported in Rotorua with great accounts with awesome Wild Rock Wine displays in New World Westend Rotorua and Liquor King, Arawa Fine Wine, and listings at Distinction hotel, Scotties Restaurant (who had loads of people buying because we sponsored XTERRA), Urbano Bistro, Rotorua Events Centre, and Last Drop Inn…the list goes on
