Its limited to 100 entries so get in quick! New to the Festival this year is the R & R Sport Mega Avalanche. The Queenstown Mega's version will be set on the slopes of the Remarkables. The start is high on the main ridge line visible to Queenstown (1980 meters). Riders will descend the main ridge two kilometers (440 vertical meters) visible from the Wakatipu Basin through wild country riding on track, rocky drops, knee high tussocks, views to die for if you can take your eyes of the job at hand. Some road (4kms), more downhill single track - Grassroots, across the road again and onto the National Series downhill course to the farm at the valley floor at 330m A drop of 1650 meters for you... That's a nice wild ride. With a mass start and motorway speeds predicted this is the sort of race where legends are born! Entries are open now and limited to 100 riders - be in.
