I love anything that flows. Anything new I love trying. I love the style of Tu Meke.

If I want to bliss out it would be Eagle vs Shark. If I want an intense wrestling match Tuhoto Ariki. I enjoy some of the climbing trails like As You Do. It depends on the weather.

My absolute favourite track is Tihi-o-Tawa. It's a track that you can cruise, take it easy and have fun on or pin it and really test yourself. Bonus points for being set in beautiful native forest. I also like Taniwha and Box of Birds.
