Enduro MTB National Championships

Mountain Bike
7 March 2025 - 9 March 2025

Cycling New Zealand are excited to partner with the Cable Bay Enduro to host the 2024 and 2025 Enduro MTB National Championships. The 2025 Championships will be contested from 7 - 9 March 2025 in Nelson.

Enduro MTB is a fast-growing mountain bike discipline, and identifies most closely with the recreational mountain biker. It is like a motor rally with riders competing over a series of timed stages on a range of challenging terrain. Competitors ride from stage to stage over untimed liaisons between timed stages.

The national championship will be staged for elite and under-21 divisions for females and males which will carry full national status on to the international stage. The associated Cable Bay enduro event will again include categories for age groups from under-15 to Masters.

This event is a UCI Sanctioned Championships. For more information on entry criteria and categories see information below.
