What is the Phoenix Enduro?

  • The Phoenix Enduro is a Enduro mountain bike event held at the Christchurch Adventure Park, on the 29th October 2022.
  • In 2022, the Phoenix Enduro is a EWS Qualifier Event, giving competitors the opportunity to gather some qualification points for the next EWS season. 
  • 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.
