" Fast, fun with a nice bit of single track to kick things off. Competitors will be blasting off with bike lights for the Start of Day 2 and have the pleasure of taking on the Motatapu River Trail before heading on to Mt Aspiring Road and the jaw dropping views of the Matukituki Valley. "

Adrian Bailey - COURSE DIRECTOR

STAGE 4 - Mountain Bike

After a well earned sleep, competitors will commence Day 2 of Red Bull Defiance from Glendhu Station HQ/Start/Finish line. The start takes place early so everyone will begin their ride up the Motatapu Valley with bike lights shining brightly. After a short gravel ride, competitors will head along the Motatapu River Track, enjoying some nice single track riding along the scenic river, before joining the Mt Aspiring Road. A fast flat section of backcountry road riding then follows, leading competitors to the transition to kayaks/canoes up into the Matukituki Valley. Compared to the long stages of Day 1, this will feel like a very short and intense ride.
