The Festival offers a cross country race day for the kids in Arrowtown - the  Kids Mini X, while the bigger ones can join mum and dad for a coffee ride along the Queenstown Trail tracks, or have a great recreational ride in the Merrell Tour de Wakatipu.

SOCIAL EVENTS Well you could join in the silliness going on at 16Inch World Champs (tbc) , cheer on the extreme freeriders throwing themselves in the air.  Don't miss the Through the Lens Film night - limited numbers.

EASY GOING EVENTS A full range of activities during the week will keep the social rider busy. From coffee rides, to night rides, to recreational riding... Do not forget there are also some great opportunities with the different tourism operators in Queenstown, just check what's on offer. 

EXTREME EVENTS The riders at the elite end of the sport can have a full week of riding. From the Oceanias, to the Cardrona Mega Avalanche, the New World Tour de Wakatipu and for the downhillers, the Downhill in the Oceanias. Bored yet - impossible, then try a heli-bike or dive into Skippers for an endless shuttle.
