The largest 24 hour Mountain Bike event in NZ

Two thousand mountain bikers are about to descend on Rotorua, New Zealand (May 12-13) for the largest 24 hour mountain bike event in the country; the Cateye Moonride.

Held in the Whakarewarewa Forest on the doorstep of Rotorua city, individuals or teams of four/five will be competing in either the Avanti 12 Hour event which runs from 10am – 10pm Sat or the Specialized 24 Hour event which starts 10pm Fri night and runs right through to 10pm Saturday.

Riders must complete as many laps as they can on the spectacular 8km World Championships course.

For the third year running the Moonride is a sell-out with a maximum field of 2000 riders. Event Directors Murray and Ingrid Fleming from Taupo’s Event Promotions are thrilled with the response and add that the competition will be as hot as ever with riders from all over the country, Australia, Asia and the USA competing for a huge selection of medals and prizes.
