Run by Huntly Events, this is the second annual mountain biking event on Fraser Graham's farm block that includes the iconic Hillside Hotel nestled in the Taupiri range.

This area will soon be altered by the Huntly Bypass Expressway, so this is an ideal opportunity to enjoy the unspoilt beauty and vista of this location.

Start/Finish venue is the Farmlands Arena, off SH1 at Huntly. Directions - Opposite Placemakers, Huntly South, turn off State Highway 1 into Tregoweth Lane- controlled by lights, turn right over railway. Carry on from sealed Tregoweth lane about 1/2 km on Hillside Station access road, Arena is on left.

Two tracks are available, the 17 km Maxi track (Yellow) is for experienced riders, (10 am start) incorporates a hill climb to the Hillside Hotel area on formed road, then turn left through the short scenic ridge ride "Rangi's bush track" to the best view point of Huntly, then a nice long descent east down to the level valley floor on clay-based track. Continue south on a largely flat farm race and then alongside the scenic Mangawara stream, do a small return loop, tackle the gut-buster final short hill to arrive back near Hilltop Hotel, then it's all downhill to the Arena finish. At least 3 water stations along this route, $30 entry, start time 10am.

The 12km Mini track is for junior (White, age 10+) or new riders, starts at the Rodeo Arena 10.15am and tackles the climb & vista to alongside Hillside Hotel, down the hill to a flat contour alongside the picturesque Mangawara stream, then doubles back to return the same way to Arena. All well formed vehicle track (2 lane) throughout. At least one water station on this route. $10 entry for 10-18 year olds, $20 entry for adults, start time 10.15.
