Spring lift-off


Goodbye snow season – hello fun in the sun. 

Queenstown mountain biker Reon Boe says farewell to winter by tackling this 17-metre whopper at a Fernhill riding area called Dream Track yesterday. 

Boe, 25, says landing the jump – which overlooks Lake Wakatipu and was built by the Queenstown Mountain Bike Club’s Nathan Greenwood – isn’t easy. 

“It’s for experts, the toughest you get. It’s not for beginners,” Boe says. 

Boe was joined by fellow riders Si Smith and Tom Hey.
