A man killed after coming off his motorbike near Te Aroha on Monday has been named.
He was Waitoa dairy farmer Anthony Paul Navin, 32.
However, police are no longer treating his death as a fatal road crash and have handed the case over to the coroner to determine Mr Navin's cause of death.
Mr Navin was found lying by his trail-bike by two family members on
Thompsons Track in the Kaimai Ranges, about 12 km south of Te Aroha, about 1pm on Monday.
They performed CPR, but were unsuccessful and Mr Navin died at the scene.
