Kelly McGarry’s preparation 2014
One of Marzocchi’s top riders, 2nd place in Rampage 2013, tells us about his preparation in New Zealand.
How's it going guys?
It’s been a great summer so far here in New Zealand, with loads of riding, road trips, travel and good times with good mates.
We have a really sweet house here in Queenstown, way up on the hill with some pretty insane views from our bedroom and as usual the town is going off! So many people around shredding bikes, makes it the place to be if you ask me!
I have been spending some time on my new MOTO!!! Have done a few Enduro races as well as blasting around the awesome terrain hre!
I've been up to loads of bike related shenanigans lately here in NZ and across the ditch in Oz!!
In January I went with the Wide Open team on a road trip around the lower South Island, I rode for Matt Whittaker from Wide Open Distributors since day one, so it’s always good to get out on the road and have a few laughs with Matt and the rest of the team.
Here is a piece I did with CNN for their travel show CNNGO. Basically the host and film team turned up to Queenstown and I had to take them around to some of my favorite spots, it was a pretty fun day for sure.

I have just got back from Queensland, Australia on a film trip with Giro Helmets & shoes, and Anthill films. It was a cool trip, we went to Jared Graves’s home town of Toowomba to check out his scene, the trails were cool, it was hot as hell and we got some rad footage. One of the highlights for me was heading to Byron Bay, a surf mecca and all round beautiful spot! We even got a bit of bike riding in!
With 2 trips to the States booked before the 2014 Northern Hemisphere season even begins, it looks as though it’s going to be an even bigger year than 2013, so will keep you guys posted with all that's happening.
Anyways, thanks a lot for all the support. See you out there!
