Oamaru’s Connor Sandri’s run of good form continued last weekend, winning the Under-19 Men’s Downhill title at the Mountainbike National Championships in Rotorua.

The former Waitaki Boys’ High School student said he had been confident of performing well in the final following his strong qualification round on Saturday.

“I was confident after the qualifiers.”

“I was up by quite a lot so I was confident of getting in the final,” he said.

The 17-year-old will be in action in Roturua again next month at the Crankworx Rotorua event.
