The Phoenix Enduro

What is the Phoenix Enduro?

  • The Phoenix Enduro is a 1-day Enduro mountain bike event held at the Christchurch Adventure Park, on the 23rd October 2021.
  • The Phoenix Enduro is our successful bid to host an EWS recognised event here in the Park. our inaugural event took place in 2019 as we 'rose from the ashes' to deliver the event post our awful wildfires of 2017.
  • Enduro mountain bike racing is designed to be the definitive test for mountain bikers. The focus of each event is to create a great atmosphere, community, competition and adventure for the competitor, including the best riding the region has to offer.
