|The Festival will add to Rotorua’s unique CV on the final weekend, hosting a third world championship in the last decade.
The World Endurance Mountain Bike Organisation 24 hour Solo World Championships will begin at midday on February Saturday 20 and wrap up the festival on Sunday.
The championship is open to anyone who wants to accept the challenge.
The Nduro24 team’s event will run alongside it in the same village, but on a separate course.
Race director, Tim Farmer, is an endurance mountain biker, himself.
“My wife, Belinda and I are like more and more people, moving to Rotorua for the mountain biking,” he said. “Getting into event organization seemed like a very natural step for us and now a couple of years later we’re running a world championship…amazing and a dream come true.”
