3-6-12 Hour Race – Rabbit Ridge Bike Resort, Queenstown NZ

Rabbit Ridge Bike Resort is excited to host our second 3-6-12 hour race in Queenstown on the 17th of January 2015 a new date. We have moved our race day to fit into the Christmas holiday period, this year with the help of funding from the Queenstown Lakes District Council we are able to reduce the entry fee across all categories, extended and improved the race track. We have added an additional prize category for the best dressed individual male, female and best dressed team male, female & mixed.

Camp on site for the race, bring your mates or family and make our mountain bike race a holiday activity.

With the large flat Gibbston Valley concert site as our staging area we have the ability to accommodate a large number of riders and spectators. Using our network of trails we can provide a course that will accommodate the beginner to advanced riders with climbs, technical areas flat passing lanes and smooth down hill descents.

Brief Race Overview
The 3 hour race is designed to accommodate the beginners, families and younger riders wanting to challenge their ability or take on their first race. With the open flat terrain we have at our disposal our course will be great for spectators and riders will still be a part of the 6 and 12 hour race with the transition circuit being together. Expect a small creek crossing, berms, rollers and fast flat sections.
As part of this event we will have food and beverage tents, Gibbston Valley Winery facilities and the stunning Gibbston to showcase by creating a festival atmosphere for racers and support crews.
The 6 and 12 hour event is open to riders 12 years and over if in a team, and 16 years and over if riding Solo. If you are a Beginner Rider and new to riding/racing, you must be able to ride competently and with the necessary skill and fitness required for an event such as this, practice and competency on the blue graded trails at Rabbit Ridge essential.

The 6 and 12 Hour Course
The trails at Rabbit Ridge Bike Resort features professionally built free flowing mountain bike trails with bermed corners and open passing areas. There is a combination of flat ground and hills with connection between the river flats and upper table land areas being a 100 meter difference in elevation. The trails climb from the bottom river flats past the grape vines and up to the first table flat area, using a series of trails on the flat overlooking the valley riders’ wind their way on the single tracks on the gentle sloping trails looping back down towards the tent area. A smooth downhill using the terrain to slow bikers completes the connection back to the tent staging area.

On race day we will mix up the single track with wider trails so there will be plenty of places for passing. This is a great course and suitable for all levels of mountain bikers Approx.

Distance approx 8 kms.
