Event description
Join us in Whangamomona for our officially-unofficial race!

About this Event

We took you to Whangamomona last year, and we were stoked to team up with the locals and our friends at Lazer to show off one of our favourite places to ride. This year, we're back with a new, even more remote route and a whole new format.

Welcome to our officially-unofficial race! Teams of two, no marshals, gentlemen's rules. 80ish-km's, 1,200ish-m's elevation and you'll travel across trails, gravel and road.

Together with your teammate, you'll sign in before departing Whangamomona and venturing into the depths of the wilderness along our remote, rugged route. You'll be on your own most of the way, but we'll make sure you've got a GPX file and that the course is marked at key points. We'll have a bake sale on course so you can refuel and rehydrate. Once you've made it to the finish line with your teammate, sign in so we can work out your officially-unofficial time and get amongst our after party. To officially finish, we'll have a couple of tasks on course you'll need to carry out so make sure you knock 'em out!

The best part of our officially-unofficial race? It's free! First place takes bragging rights, but we'll have spot prizes for best-dressed, best-team name, best tale from the ride and whatever other categories we dream up between now and then.

The after party? Tickets are $60 per team. Your $60 earns you and your buddy an exclusive Swag Bag brought to you by us and our partners, a bite to eat and something to wash it down with, and an Republic of Whangamomona passport.

Wanna come? Book a ticket (one ticket per team), and then find the link in your confirmation email to book your spot at our after party. You'll be travelling all the way into Whanga so might as well hang around right?

A few things you should know:

  • Our course is remote, and we highly suggest you carry a PLB in case of emergencies.
  • If you can't find a teammate, get in touch - we will keep a list of riders seeking teammates.
  • We will not have electronic timing. Teams will leave Whanga at approx. 1-minute intervals and sign-in with their departure time. Upon arrival back in Whanga, teams will sign-in with their arrival time and an approximate race time will be calculated.
