The Pioneer 

The Pioneer Mountain Bike Stage Race through NZ’s Southern Alps has proven to be a true pioneering race. All those who compete love the stunning scenery, the brutal nature of the challenge, and they leave heaping praise on this epic event through New Zealand’s pristine high country.

The third edition of The Pioneer will take place from 25 – 30 November 2018 and will be as challenging as ever. Local and international mountain bikers will tackle the six-stage race in teams of two. Riders must stay no more than 2 minutes apart for the entire race.

Many riders push themselves to their absolute limits and then ride beyond to discover new limits for themselves and their teammate. The level of camaraderie that develops amongst the riders around the social lounge in camp every day is staggering and heart-warming. We don’t exaggerate when we say life-long friends are made on this journey.
