Justin Leov is well known to many mountain bikers as a seasoned pro downhiller who is now racing enduro at the top level in the Enduro World Series.

One of Justin's favourite loops when he is riding in Rotorua takes in a couple of the most technical trails in the forest:


"I usually start my ride at the Longmile Visitor Information Centre and head up As you do. Then I ride down K2 before heading up Direct Road and Frontal Lobotomy trail to get to the shuttle dropoff point. Then it's a bit more climbing up Tawa road frontal to get to the native bush trails. I'll do the first part of Tuhoto Ariki before taking the turn off to ride Kataori.

After that I'll head back around Windy and Pipeline roads to get to the other side of the forest. At the water tap on the intersection of Pipeline/Red Tank/Direct roads I'll head down B Rude Not 2 then cut across to ride up Lion Trail.

A bit more climbing up Katore Road then I'll finish by either riding back down As You do, or will do Corridor then Old Exit."


Another alternative version Justin rides that covers more ground and includes harder tracks is that instead of riding Kataori he'll continue on Tuhoto Ariki then do Hatu Patu.

Then up Moerangi Road, left turn at the summit on Bush Road to get to Kung Fu Walrus. Then back up the southern side of Moerangi Road and finish with Riff Raff and Rocky Horror.

That leads into Rollercoaster/Moonshine before heading along Pipeline road to get to the B Rude Not 2/Lion/Corridor/Old Exit combination to get back to the start.
