The 6- Day Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race through NZ’s Southern Alps is a true pioneering feat.

On your journey, you will discover stunning scenery, experience the brutal nature of the challenge, and will leave New Zealand heaping praise on this epic event and its pristine backcountry trails.

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