Team Stoked at Motatapu Mountain Bike Race | Queenstown NZ

It was good to see some Stoked Team riders competing in the Motatapu mountain bike race yesterday.

The ride is 47km long with the first 32km being up hill, in some places it is only just ride able. Total climbing is 1214m. From the summit the ride has some sharp descents along with 6 river crossings. The weather conditions were perfect, with just a slight head wind.

It starts at Glendhu Bay near Wanaka, travels through the Motatapu valley, then finishes in Arrowntown.

The ride is very popular with over 2000 riders entering.
