Mongolian Derby underway, NZers in the lead

From Afternoons, 1:45 pm on 25 July 2022

The one thousand kilometre long Mongolian Derby started on Saturday and two New Zealanders are in the lead.

We spoke to one of those riders, Sam Edney, two weeks ago about taking part in the endurance race. You can follow her progress here.

Today we speak to her step-mum, Janey about what the early days of the race have been like for the young women from Aotearoa.

Soon-to-be 21-year-old Sam Edney will compete in the Mongol Derby. Photo:
