Craig Harper, from Blenheim, ultra-endurance cyclist, and current record holder for cycling the Length of NZ - Cape Reinga to Bluff (2017 - 4 days, 9 hr, 45 min) is now testing himself against the best endurance cyclists in the World in the "World's Toughest Bike Race", that is the Race Across America.

Craig is a builder by occupation, a husband to Kate, and father to two daughters Brooke (11) and Hannah (9).

Craig has a long history of competitive sport, and even represented NZ at rowing in Junior, U23, University and Elite level crews. This cycling challenge has culminated from 6 years of competitive cycling and in particular ultra endurance type races.

By "Sponsoring a Mile" (or many) you will be helping cover the costs of getting Craig and his 9 support crew to the race as well as all the expenses that come with travelling over 3000 miles non stop.

Craig will be representing NZ and needs your help as he strives to be the best in the World.
