This will be the third year now that we've been out to the beautiful Rangituhi Trails for one of the spring rounds. This year there is an addition to the course of Blaster.

Start at the bottom of Farm Road. Ride up Farm Road to Loop Road, turn left (Opposite Loop Road) and descend down Tumeke. At the bottom of Tumeke turn right and ride access track until Spicerlink/Lower Tumeke exit. Enter Spicerlink heading South. Ride Spicerlink to unmarked 4x4 road (will be marked for the event). Up unmarked 4x4 road to Boundary Road. At Boundary Road, turn left and ride doen Boundary Road/Lower Crash Palace. Once at Spicerlink there is the option to exit out of Crash Palace or Spicerlink (easy). Turn right at bottom of trail, across ford and turn right into The Doctor. Ride to top and turn left on Boundary Road to Farm Road. Left onto Farm Road and climb to Chimneysweep. Ride Chimneysweep and RJ/Lateral Road and at the bottom of Lateral Road ride short up Farm Road to Boundary Road. Keep Left down Boundary Road and shortly into Upper Tumeke. Ride Upper Tumeke and Part of Tumeke until Mid access point. Exit at Mid access and pedal across to Loop Road. Ride Loop Road into Blaster and then Left onto Spicerlink to complete loop on Farm Road by gate.
