The Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race

The Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race is a four day solo traverse of 314km or 7 day Epic team race of 549km through the stunning and pristine Southern Alps.

The inaugural Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race through New Zealand's Southern Alps proved to be a true pioneering race.

All those who competed loved the stunning scenery of the host regions (Christchurch-Canterbury and Queenstown), 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.
