The inaugural Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race through NZ’s Southern Alps proved to be a true pioneering race. All those who competed loved the stunning scenery, the brutal nature of the challenge, and left them heaping praise on this epic event through New Zealand’s pristine high country.

Many riders pushed themselves to their absolute limits, and then rode beyond to discover new limits for themselves and their teammate. The level of camaraderie that developed amongst the riders around the social lounge in camp every day was staggering and heart-warming. We don’t exaggerate when we say life-long friends are made on this journey.
