After the launch of the CUBE Global Squad in January the talented 25 year old rider Matt Walker impressed the world with a big victory at the Giant Toa Enduro at Crankworx Rotorua. In his home country New Zealand, Matt entertained the spectators by sealing the deal in the final stage.

Matt Walker has won the Giant Toa Enduro at Crankworx 2016 in Rotorua

“I was hoping for maybe a top 10 or top five, but to win is a bit of a surprise. I’ve been putting in quite a bit of hard work in the off season now and I guess it’s paying off, so I’m really happy. It’s been a hard day, quite long tracks and it hasn’t suited my preparation, I guess, but I’m stoked on how today has gone. I’ve been having a lot of fun—it’s good times all round.”
