Columb on a roll

Queen­stown mo­tocross rider Scott Columb fin­ished third at the New Zealand Mo­tocross grand Prix at Woodville on the week­end fol­low­ing a ma­jor trophy win at the King of the Moun­tain mo­tocross in Taranaki last week. Com­men­ta­tor Andy McGechan said his per­for­mance was es­pe­cially re­mark­able given he had crashed heav­ily dur­ing a train­ing ses­sion mid-week. He is hop­ing to re­claim the na­tional cham­pion ti­tle he held two years ago.
