SHORT AND SHARP
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.
