choppers v2 dq 19.jpg

Chopper

Hardtails, soft tails, diggers, fat tyres, lowriders, springers, Z bars, ape hangers... It had to look like a chopper to be in this class. Factory custom bikes were in IRB. We had only the wildest chops in this race. Results for the top five are as follows:

  1. Sam Neville

  2. Warren Picken

  3. Chris Peters

  4. Jason Woolmer
