We are heading to Vegas! Come and join us for the first and final of the 2023 NZDH series in the central location of Rotorua!

What a place to kick start the season! Hosted by the Descend Mountain Bike Club – the first and final round of the series will be held in Rotorua, based out in the Whakarewarewa Forest. The event location is situated at the bottom of the Downhill track, just along from the Mountain Bike Rotorua Pick Up.

Please note once the Planet Bike carpark is full, riders will then have to park at Waipa Carparks.
