Brian Bernard is team owner and manager and has over 30 years of experience with Motorcycle racing, spending 23 years racing and gaining both National and International titles and championships. He is multi-time NZ National Road Race Champion and has raced in Australia, Canada and USA during his career.
Brian has had a high performance workshop and coaching business for 13 years.
The idea to offer a unique “NZ Road Race Experience” package to International riders came about when we realized that during our 21 year marriage we had gained a great deal of race experience between us that would be beneficial for riders wanting to hone their skills in a relaxed, low pressure environment while getting some treatment for any chronic issues, plus advice on injury prevention, nutrition and mental performance. We have a range of facilities set in beautiful rural NZ at our race headquarters and offer a variety of services for the professional racer, from the bike to their body.
Our lifestyle property has been home to a number of International riders from Australia, Canada and the USA. Past riders become an extension of our family during their four months living and racing with us, and to this day still keep in touch! KC has cared for them at home and at the track from feeding them to treating their injuries and making sure they are in a good mental state. Brian has prepared them for the NZ circuits from his personal track time and coaching experience. When racing with our team, it is a lifestyle experience, not just a race experience. We have a heap of fun both on and off the track and our riders and crew always work as a team. We live, work and play together - when one struggles, we all feel it and work together to solve it, when one achieves, we all celebrate. That’s what a team should do in our view and that’s what we are offering along with the experience of racing in NZ.
Between races you’ll have your own private accommodation and Gym facilities to relax while keeping race fit. Enjoy home cooked meals and fresh air with scenic views of green rolling hills and mountains from of our lifestyle property and surrounding farmland. Take a 5 minute bicycle ride to our local beach, a 10 minute drive to Wanganui‘s city centre, have a go at any of our three local MX tracks or relax in the sun on the deck with a cold one taking in the scenic country views, the choice is yours. Mountain biking, hiking, fishing, hunting, river tours, local pubs and restaurants, Wanganui has it all.
