The NZ Enduro is an award wining sold out race, 2019 will be its fith edition. It is New Zealand’s wildest multi day Enduro stage race. Natural single-track in native forests on the magical Marlborough Sounds with helicopter shuttles. Sweet As!
When: 8th, 9th & 10th March 2019
Where: The top of the South Island, New Zealand in the beautiful Marlborough region. This area is know for it’s spectacular scenery, great riding, wine & lots of sunshine.
How many people: 140 racers.
Day one starts and ends at the beach in White’s Bay. Then we move on to the spectacular Nydia Track, linking three bays along the Pelorus Sounds’ coastline over four timed stages for day twos’ point to point adventure. We finish in style on the final day, helicopter shuttled to the top of the infamous fern clad Wakamarina track, the crown jewel of NZ native bush track riding for the final four race stages.
Previous editions of the race was voted by Pinkbike as the best non EWS enduro race as well as the riders choice awards as the best enduro race in New Zealand for 2015.
The top of the South Island is wild and rugged and the best trails are often hard to access. With vehicle and helicopter shuttles the NZ Enduro allows racers the ability to access these areas with ease and all with their mates over three solid days of riding and racing. This multi-day, point to point race feels more like an adventure. The liaisons are untimed, there is no rigid start order to adhere to and no scheduled practise. Just good old fashioned fun on the bike, a race within a social setting.
