  • Description

    In 2016 as part of The Pioneer event we offered the 3 Day Traverse. For 2017, this is being changed to the 4 Day Traverse, which is currently being finalised. All event and course info will be released for this event at a later date.

    The 4 Day Traverse takes everything that is great about The Pioneer and concentrates it down to 4-days of intense but achievable stage-racing.

    Linking together farm tracks, NZ Cycle Trails, double track and single track riding (the very same trails as the 7 Day Epic) it will take you through the best the Southern Alps has to offer and to parts of the country that few will ever get to enjoy. Soaring mountains, crystal-clear blue lakes and golden high country await!

    If you’re looking for that step-up from one day MTB events, then the 4 Day Traverse will inspire you to take that step, and ride beyond!

  • Getting There

    Kia Ora and welcome to Aotearoa, New Zealand, a bucket list country to visit!

    New Zealand is a small country made up of two main islands situated in the south western Pacific Ocean. While it may be small in size, it is large in life, brimming with character, adventure and a population of 4 million people who love to share their beautiful country with you! Although New Zealand may not be the easiest place to get to, visitors to our shores are so pleased they made the effort when they get here, and often find it hard to leave.

    Stunning unspoilt scenery greets you wherever you venture throughout New Zealand and treats you to diverse environments. Natural features include glaciers, volcanoes, lakes, mountains, rainforests and beaches, of which you can often see several in one day.

    Kiwis are a really friendly welcoming bunch who love to experience adventure with you, share stories and ensure you enjoy your time spent in New Zealand.

    The Pioneer MTB stage race will allow you to experience all that is amazing about being at the ‘bottom of the world’, plus much more, as you Ride Beyond.
