New World Tour de Wakatipu
Sat, 19th Apr 2014
This event is entering its sixth year.
A beautiful course along both the Shotover and Kawarau Rivers, starting in Millbrook, coupled with fantastic food, wine and music at Chard Farm! The formulae is well established now, and the course offers great riding for all involved.
The course is basically the same as it has been since the inception except that we use some of the new Wakatipu Trail ie along side Slopehill Rd, and on the lower Shotover Delta everyone ride along the new ‘stopbank’ section.
We are also able to traverse some private farmland down the true right of the Kawarau River thanks to the support of Steve Laing and Mike Mee. It is the only chance to ride this side of the river.
From the elite to the family rider, it caters for everyone. We actually have two races - the elite and sport start early in the day followed by their own prize-giving, while the recreational riders start a little later with their prize-giving at about 4 o'clock in the afternoon.
This event supports CureKids and the Wakatipu Trails Trust.
