TRANS NZ 6 DAY ENDURO RACE
Feb 16-21 - 2020
The Trans NZ Enduro is a 6 day all inclusive Enduro event that will take riders over some of the best trails on the South Island of NZ. It takes riders on a challenging adventure of all styles of trails from Craigieburn in the Canterbury region to the famous Queenstown trails and a few stops in between of seeing how far you can push your limits.
New Zealand’s reputation in the mountain biking world is forever growing bigger and stronger as many riders from around the world flock to the Southern Hemisphere to be able to ride year round and escape the Northern Hemisphere winters. Also for the Aussie's across the ocean to come and ride trails that are very different to what Australia has. That’s why there is no better way then to head to NZ for a sweet 6 day adventure.
Native beach forest, alpine riding, roots, high speed flow, loose, steep and rock are just some aspects of what to expect throughout the 6 days. A full array of trail styles and types have been hand selected to make sure you all experience a little bit of everything in NZ!
These types of events are about allowing riders to explore new mountain bike areas around the world. It’s a style of racing that you don’t have to pin it from start to finish. Only sections of the course are timed while riders get to take their time on the liaison sections and take in the magic scenery around them and socialize with other riders in the event on their way to the next timed stage. It will attract some of the serious Pro’s but mostly the hard core everyday mountain bikers looking to push their limits and take on new challenges and explore new areas!
You will cover over 1500m (4900ft) of climbing each day and over 2,000m (6,500ft) of descending each day - totaling over 14,000m (45,000ft) of descending for the full 6 days. Average day is over 30kms (18 miles), expecting about 4-6hrs out on course each day.
