Our team

After an extremely enjoyable & moderately successful shot at the North Island leg in 2015, we're back with a slightly altered line up to have a go at the South in 2017.

We are again raising money for St John as our chosen charity, their immeasurable value was well demonstrated by their response when a fellow competitor went wheels up during the 2015 tour.
Having an organisation such as St John there to pick up the pieces when things do go wrong is something we can't afford to take for granted.

The Veros Heros team for this year's assault is made up of the returning Dean Gough, Tim Mackie & Marcus Smith, along with our 2 new riders Kelvin McDowell & Doug Roberts.

Looking forward to seeing you all out there!!

Chosen charity

St John

St John is a charity, and we need your support to help us care for people every day. Has a member of your family ever needed care from a St John paramedic? Maybe you have used your St John first aid kit to treat an injured friend? Right across New Zealand, St John is there for people when they are in need. We provide Ambulance Services to most New Zealanders - including your community. The donations we receive will be used to help New Zealanders - maybe even you or someone you know.
