Background information

The NZ 2008 MTB Championships could only be held in Wellington with the inclusion of a Dual Slalom (also used as a Four Cross) mountain bike track. One has been built by many volunteers from the mountain bike community and it is hoped that the Council will grant permission for the track to remain permanently on Council land, as this track is a fantastic and valuable addition to the MTB community.
