Jaws Enduro

Tasman de Leeuw

Sunday's racing saw a great bunch of riders enjoying the inaugural 3-stage Jaws Enduro. Stage 1 took in the final part of Skullduggery, stage 2 through Remedy and Shady LAdy and Stage 3 of course Jaws, with the bottom section of Big Airs thrown in.

 Some very close results, with Ben Karalus edging out stage 1 & 2 winner Tasman de Leeuw by 10.7 seconds overall. Sandy Vincent took out each stage for the women.

Mountainbike Rogaine

Sunday afternoon saw the second rogaine event held at the park. Hot on the heels of being part of the successful Godzone team 'Team Motueka', Brent Steinmetz was joined by Greg Buckett and took out the event with 990 points.

This was a great family event, combining map work, route planning and of course mountainbiking. Thanks to Linsday Smith with his organization of the event, and also work on creating the permanent orienteering course in Kaiteriteri.

Big thanks to our event sponsors, Port Nelson Ltd, plus Kaiteriteri Beach Camp for providing the facilities.

We’d also like to thank CJ Industries (cones, signs etc), Motueka Rotary Club (marshalling), Alan Eskrick & Dennis Bartlett (timekeeping), Oliver Weber Photography plus our prize donors (Reliance Betta Electrical, Motueka Bike Shed, Wildside Travel, Wheel Woman, Tineli, Whitwells, Trail Journeys, Hi Tec, Physio 4 Health, Ginger Dynamite, Hop Federation, Abel Tasman Sea Shuttle)

The funds raised from the weekend go back into developing the park. Right now we have a jump line being crafted from the Big Airs/Skullduggery hub (stage 1 open now), and plans for a return track from the end of Revelation back to Swampmonster.

Kaiteriteri Weekender 2016

Entries Open - Click Here

The Kaiteriteri Weekender returns for 2016, bigger and better! What better way to start the April school holidays than a biking weekend in Kaiteriteri?

The Kaiteriteri 6 Hour, presented by Port Nelson Ltd, kicks things off on Saturday 16th April. Based at the Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp there’s a rolling start along the beach front before the serious action starts in the Kaiteriteri Mountainbike Park proper. The course utilises many of the easier tracks, so is suitable for all riders with some basic mountainbike experience.
Categories are men's, women's and mixed teams (2-4 riders per team), schools (secondary and intermediate) and for those who just don't know when to relax and have fun there's solo as well.
It’s a fun event, with plenty of people getting in the spirit of things and coming in costume. Bring the family, those not riding can enjoy the beach, mini golf and everything else Kaiteriteri has to offer.

Plenty of prizes on offer, including a retro women's Malvern Star Wisp Lite bike from Motueka Bike Shed and a 32 inch Panasonic TV from Reliance Betta Electrical, and spot prizes throughout the day.
This is our major fundraiser for the year, with proceeds going into park development.

Sunday sees the introduction of the Jaws Enduro. This will run on intermediate to advanced tracks in the park over three timed predominantly downhill stages. No prizes for guessing that the final stage will incorporate the full length of Jaws… Numbers for the Enduro will be limited, initially offered to those registering for the 6 Hour.

If downhill speed isn’t your thing, the Nelson Orienteering Club is holding a Mountainbike Rogaine on Sunday also. This was a popular addition to the weekend last year, and sees teams try to accumulate as many points as possible from checkpoints in the area within the allotted time.

The Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp has been instrumental in the formation of the mountainbike park, and is the perfect place to stay during the weekend. Bring your tent or caravan, or book a cabin (subject to availability). For the weekend they are offering 20% off accommodation for entrants – just mention that you’re part of the Kaiteriteri Weekender at the time of booking.

 So time to get your team organised and get ready to enter!
