This is the third consecutive year that The Pioneer Race was being held. We are currently racing in New Zealand right now, for 6 days from 25th to 30th November 2019.
Total Distance: 424 kilometres
Total Climb: 15,124 metres
This Epic Global MTB Series event, which belongs to the Epic Global Mountain Bike Series, is the same as the Cape Epic and Swiss Epic I have participated in, both in the form of a two-person team. And in the whole race, the time gap between the two cannot exceed 2 minutes.
The Pioneer kicked off at Queenstown, New Zealand, a city famously known as the ‘World’s Adventure Capital’, and will finish at the same place.
According to the conference, the six stages of the event will bring an incredible experience to the participants and connect the best riding places in the South Island. In the event, participants will experience the best cycling routes in New Zealand through many of the unique forest trails and remote suburbs.
