NELSON – TASMAN – MARLBOROUGH

Somewhat off the trodden path, on a small island, itself at the very edge of the world. Yet with surprisingly easy travel options. The perfect spot for an epic new take on multi-day MTB Enduro?

The ‘Top of the South’ – Te Tauihu – is known for its beautiful beaches, rugged coastline, wild mountains, and 3 National Parks. Our region’s warm, settled climate regularly tops NZ’s sunshine-hours charts.

A rich history of fossicking for gold and minerals have left a network of historic trails that feel purpose made for a modern full-suspension rig. The region’s capital, Nelson, has long been the go-to destination for Kiwis ‘in the know’. A supportive and progressive council and ‘can-do’ locals attitude has seen this historical network be complimented by 100’s of kms of hand-crafted, purpose-built MTB trails. 

Nelson was confirmed to host the EWS in 2021 but COVID travel restrictions forced cancellation. NZ MTB Rally steps up to fill that gap…but with something refreshingly original. We can’t wait to show you what you’ve been missing.
