GIANT 2W GRAVITY ENDURO Saturday 11 February 2017
 

Inside the 5th Rotorua Bike Festival

Cruise up - Race Down…   Welcome to the country’s 4 biggest gravity Enduro’s and the most fun you’ll ever have mountain biking.

Encapsulating everything people love about the sport of mountain biking – the adventure, challenge, adrenaline fix, combined with fun social riding; and at the same time teasing out the little bit of competitiveness and thrill-seeker we all have inside of us; the Giant 2W Gravity Enduro’s invite you to come ride at your pace as both an individual with your mates; catch shuttle busses to the tops of the hills (if you don’t feel like riding them!); then let rip racing down timed long flowing descents in the world famous Redwoods /Whakarewarewa Forest trail network in Rotorua. Race hard downhill, have some laughs and tell a few tales at the bottom, then share in some banter whilst cruising between race stages. You have the choice of a four stage event (on grade 3-4 trails) or a six stage event (including two additional grade 5 trails) either shuttle or non-shuttled, so riders can pick the level of event that suits their fitness and skills. Top it off with some food and beverages upon finishing, plus an enormous bounty of giveaways, performance and spot prizes up for grabs, and you have the recipe for the must not be missed event.  Be in quick as entries are limited.
