 I wonder why Sam Gaze didn’t race? Maybe doing the road thing more this year? He ended last year with some strong xco results, was looking forward to seeing him in the mix at world cups.

 He's over in Europe racing on the road. In fact he's racing Kuurne - Bruxelles - Kuurne right now.

 From what I understand it was due to travel/quarantine restrictions. He was entered to race both NZ National Road and MTB Championships, as well as another major Road event (all through February). But decision was made that it was better for the european season to stay where he was.
