Rachael Archer: NZ’s U17 Enduro-Junior, Cross Country, MX Champion in person

NZ’s 16 year old Rachael Archer is a force to be reckoned with holding U17’s Cross Country, Enduro-Junior and Motocross Championship Titles, along with debut performance at America’s 2017 GNCC Women Pro Class 2 Rounds finishing credible 7th and 4th respectively.

What makes Rachael’s passion for riding, racing any dirt/terrain surface here in NZ and overseas special is her candid nature.

Rachael: ‘I just want to ride…when I’m at school, (boarding school) and I obviously can’t ride, I do the next best thing and go mountain bike riding, gym every day and watch Go-Pro videos of riding so I can pretend I’m on the bike’.

At 16 years of age, Rachael has racked up numerous NZ’s Enduro/Cross-Country Titles, with a bent for Ironman events as indivdual rider.

As Rachael puts it: ‘I’d rather race on my own over a 6 hour or 4 hour Ironman event, than team up with another rider, as this way I test myself against the 2-man Teams’.

Growing up on a farm at Ngaroma, NZ with 200 paddocks of rolling to steep terrain, bush tracks home is the perfect antidote for training.

Rachael: ‘I can prety much ride anywhere, I just jump off the ha-ha (rock wall) and go hard’.

With an incredibly supportive family gearing Rachael’s talent and passion for racing in NZ and overseas, the future remains bright for the gutsy, courageous and spirited star.

This film edit captures what drives Rachael as a person in her quest to fulfill untapped potential of achieving success in one the most demanding off-road sports in NZ and off-shore.
