Revelstoke’s Stu Dickson is the winner of the inaugural Trans NZ enduro mountain bike race.

Dickson won the five day enduro stage race in a total time of 2:01:54 — more than two minutes ahead of runner up Zac Williams.

The Trans NZ took place from March 7–11 on New Zealand’s south island.

Dickson, racing in the open men category, won the first three stages. He finished fifth on day four, but managed to retain his overall lead.

On the final day, he placed second — good enough to get the overall win.

Dickson is an aspiring professional mountain biker who signed to the Canadian company Devinci Bikes last year.

Last summer, Dickson finished second overall in the BC Enduro series. He traveled to New Zealand this winter to continue his mountain biking. This year he will be racing in several Enduro World Series events.
