Man dies dur­ing trail ride

The Tribune (NZ) - - NEWS -

A 25-year-old man has died dur­ing an off-road mo­tor­bike trail ride in ru­ral Manawatu. A po­lice spokesman said the man died dur­ing the Waituna West Trail Ride just af­ter 1pm on Sun­day. The ride was held on pri­vate land in Waituna West, a small town­ship near Feild­ing. The spokesman was un­able to give any de­tails about the cir­cum­stances of the man’s death, but said he was an ex­pe­ri­enced rider and was ‘‘well equipped’’. The mat­ter has been re­ferred to the coro­ner and it was not im­me­di­ately clear if the man was from the area. The trail ride is an an­nual fundraiser for Waituna West School and has been held for 25 years.
