Dates for the 2017 Festival announced

Posted by on 5 September 2016

The dates for the Queenstown Bike Festival 2017 are set for around the Easter period next year. This follows on from Crankworkx dates.

A tentative program has been drawn up which may see some revision. Bck on the program are all the old favorites of the Festival - the Enduro on Coronet Peak, the tour de wakatipu in new form, the 16 inch World Champs and the Super D on the gondola. Also scheduled is the Slopestyle event but this is somewhat dependent on funding.

Commercial and operational partners are currently being sought.
