BRU­TAL, BUT STUN­NING

Central Otago Mirror - - WHAT’S ON -

The Pi­o­neer moun­tain bike races start on Fri­day from Christchurch, head­ing down the South­ern Alps. There are two events - one for teams of two over seven days in­volv­ing 545km of rid­ing and 15,508m of climb­ing and fin­ish­ing in Queen­stown on Satur­day. In­di­vid­u­als com­pete over four days, com­plet­ing 310km and 8402m of climb­ing - fin­ish­ing at Lake Ohau. Those who com­peted last year loved the stun­ning scenery, and the ‘‘bru­tal’’ na­ture of the chal­lenge.
