Guy Carter and Johnny Van Leeuwen take on 7 day, 569km Mtn Bike Stage Race

7 day, 569km Mountain Bike Stage Race

The Pioneer is NZ's newest and perhaps hardest Mountain Bike stage race. The 7-day race starts in Christchurch and ends in Queenstown, featuring over 15,000m of vertical climbing and covering a distance of almost 600km, this race is not for the faint hearted. See promo video below...

The wider event also includes day rides and a 3-day event, both of which can be ridden solo. But the main event is reserved for teams of two.

Impact Consulting are proud to be supporting some of our own. Guy Carter & Johnny Van Leeuwen are taking on the 7 day event and are currently sitting in 10th place (just 12minutes behind the leaders).
