Summer Weekly Report - February 16, 2018

The second race of Fast Fridays is on tonight! We're full steam into summer events season...

There was a great turn out for last week's first race of our social series. It was awesome to see everyone getting out there for an evening of racing, laughs, beers & banter... we're excited for Race #2 tonight!

The Altherm Window Systems NZ MTB Nationals are just around the corner, with Cross Country scheduled for next Saturday (the 24th) & Downhill on Sunday (the 25th). Everyone is welcome to come up & watch NZ's best battle it out for the national titles!

Weather Forecast

It looks like a bit of a damp start to the week, according to the team at That means the trails should be in pretty mint condition for Nationals next weekend... bring it on!


The volunteer trail pixies have been digging up a storm in preparation for Nationals next weekend. It's so awesome to see the local bike community (big props to the Wanaka Bike Club) getting involved in this event.

Tonight is Race #2 of our social racing series – the Racers Edge Fast Fridays! If you haven't signed up already, entry is just $25 for all 4 races, & you get a commemorative glass & a beer included!

The series takes a wee break for the next couple of weeks, with the Altherm Window Systems NZ Mountain Bike Nationals on next weekend! We've had a peek at the start list & it's full of HEAVY hitters so you won't wanna miss it! Fast Fridays will back on March 2 & 9. 

Coming up we've got a couple of welcome days up on the mountain – the first one is Dusty Divas! It's a day for ladies of all ages & levels with group riding & coaching for $50... which includes a day pass. It's a total bargain & will be soooo much fun!!

We're super psyched to watch another week of action in Korea – a huge good luck to Finn, Wacko, Byron, Beau-James, Janina, Britt, Nico, Miguel, Zoi & Carlos who're all set to compete in the next few days!
