Back to News

Motorcycling New Zealand is pleased to announce the appointment of Ray Broad to the role of Motocross Commissioner, a voluntary role that will see him provide strategic and technical leadership and feedback to MNZ to help advance the discipline.

Ray has been involved in motocross for over 15 years, ever since his son first hopped on a mini-moto at the age of three and a half. As his son progressed through the MX ranks, competing in his first minis championship at five before scaling the ranks to compete in the senior nationals, so Ray’s involvement in the sport also progressed. He has contributed much to our sport, at club level, acting as Riders Rep at National level, Steward, Clerk of the Course, and Oceania Board representative for New Zealand. He was elected to the MNZ Board in 2015.

He will resign his Board position on 2 March 2018 to take up the Motocross Commissioner’s role, effective 5 March 2018, and is looking forward to leading the discipline he’s most passionate about. Being actively involved at club and competition level keeps him current with the needs and concerns of competitors and parents. Ray says he’s looking to bring positive change to motocross in New Zealand and is focused on looking after riders, clubs and sponsors.

This will be through a full commission with a dedicated Mini/Junior coordinator, Schools coordinator, Senior coordinator and Vets/Women’s coordinator, a team working together for the good of all riders at all levels.

Welcome to your new role Ray, it’s great to have you on the team.
