    Down in New Zealand there doesn't seem to be much for kids in the way of mountain bike racing.

    I'm hoping the greater distance will suit my son better than the intensity of bmx racing that he's been doing since he was 5.

    In the US what age do the kids start proper MTB racing?

    (next year he'll be 11 and finally eligible for road time trials so he'll do them too).

    I don't have any answers for you. I just think it's cool that you're supporting your son's racing.

    By the way, New Zealand is full of the nicest people I have ever met.
