Stunning scenery, a limit testing challenge and the New Zealand welcome combine in this true pioneering race.

The Pioneer, fuelled by Nutri-Grain Mountain Bike Stage Race has proven to be a true pioneering race. All those who compete love the stunning scenery, the brutal nature of the challenge, and they leave heaping praise on this epic event through New Zealand’s pristine scenery.

The fifth edition of The Pioneer will the event leave New Zealand’s South Island and head north for the first time in its history, starting and finishing in the Mountain Bike Mecca of Rotorua, in the North Island. Taking place from 8 – 13 November 2020, it’s sure to be as challenging as ever.

Many riders push themselves to their absolute limits and then ride beyond to discover new limits for themselves and their teammate. The level of camaraderie that develops amongst the riders around the social lounge in camp every day is staggering and heart-warming. We don’t exaggerate when we say life-long friends are made on this journey.
