 Britten superbike at the Burt Munro Challenge, 2009

Seven-time New Zealand motorcycle-racing champion Andrew Stroud pulls a wheelie on the legendary Britten superbike during the 2009 Burt Munro Challenge. Although this was Stroud's first Munro Challenge, he won both the sprint races and the F1 street race. The Burt Munro Challenge was inaugurated by the Southland Motorcycle Club in 2006 as an annual six-day event held at several Southland locations.
