http://youtu.be/rNBacl223EE Auckland cinematographer John Colthorpe has whipped up this sweet little clip for a new tour outfit. It looks like they hit a bunch of the South Island's hot spots on their recent two week trip. It's a pretty solid little showcase for New Zealand trails. Check the full press release below.
New Zealand has been in the MTB press of late and there's good reason for it. New Zealand is a Mountain bikers paradise. Landscapes so diverse in terrain and mountain bike trails the same. Mountain biking hot spots from Auckland to now world famous Queenstown, Rotorua, Taupo, Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch the list goes on. So much trail goodness in between to satisfy every downhill, enduro, cross-country and backcountry mountain biker.
The New Zealand Government and DOC the (Department of Conservation) now also see how great mountain biking is with more new trails be opened for Mountain bikers as we speak. Local support in trail building is coming from Trail Fund NZ helping fund the local trail networks and building of more sustainable trails. It's not just the now that is great riding in New Zealand but the future of mountain biking in NZ is in great shape.
So whether you're a World Cup Pro or you just love to ride, New Zealand has it all. Mountain Bike events litter the calendar, with amazing races in stunning locations throughout the country. There's good reason New Zealand mountain bikers are on the rise to World Cup podiums.
The guys at JustMTB put together this clip from some of the trails in their NZ Tour packages. Also if your passing through Sea Otter stop in at booth #210 and come talk New Zealand mountain biking with the guys at JustMTB.
