After the great success of last year’s event, the NZO Trailblazer is back for its second year.  Held in the Pureora Forest it can certainly claim to be one of New Zealand’s most scenic mountain bike events.  Dynamo Events’ Nathan Cox explains, “It is very much an event for everyone.  It is not a very technical trail, it is run on the Timber Trail which is one of the NZ Cycle ways that John Key commissioned a few years back.”

That commission has resulted in an 85km cycleway that passes through Rimu, Totara, Miro Matai and Kahikatea; and over no less than 35 bridges en route.  There are two distances riders can tackle in the full 85km Timber Trail Classic, or the shorter 45km Black Fern Express.  On top of that there are individual and team categories available to riders.

Riders can still enter the event but please note that there are no on-the-day entries available; with entries closing tomorrow.  Nathan and the team are looking forward to this year’s event based on the fantastic result from putting on the event last year.  “Last year’s event was very successful,” he said.  “With just over 200 people we were very happy with that, it was a great day and the feedback has been fantastic!”
