King of the Beach Damien Koppe is back to make it three in a row on September 8th

Two years ago, Mackay's King Of The Beach and Townsville boy,  Damien Koppe went to one of the most prestigious multi-day events on the New Zealand calendar, the Bert Munro Challenge and blitzed the Kiwis, winning his three heats and the long distance final.

In February this year he went back again and again won all his heats but in the final, mechanical troubles knocked him out of the event.

I'm telling you this because one of New Zealand's top riders from that event is being brought to Grasstree Beach by Damien next Sunday - he's even loaning him a bike!
