Whatever your reason, enter the Santa Cruz Coppermine - http://www.coppermine.co.nz. Good times, awesome prizes, more prize money, EPIC riding.

Since it's now being run by the MTB club, has the entry price dropped at all?
I tried to find it on the website but you have fill out 20 fields of info before it will tell you!

Would rather have an affordable entry fee than all the fancy prizes :rolleyes:

We hear you about fancy prizes and lower fees, but the prizes have all be put up by our awesome sponsors. The cost is in the overheads I'm afraid given the exposure of the riders in the back country. However, if there is any money left over after the event, it will be put back into building more trails in the NMTBC region - which is good for everyone!

The entry price has now been put up on the website.... http://www.coppermine.co.nz/new-index/

Hey that's fair enough, if it's all in overheads with profits going back to NMTBC then that's fine by me :thumbsup:
Btw that link still wouldn't show me the price without filling in the whole form, it's $80, or $70 for club members, which I think is a bit less than it used to be.

The price seems reasonable and it also includes a burger and a beer plus it's a lot cheaper than a popular one in Central Otago. This race is on my bucket list, it looks more challenging than most of the farm track type of races I've done in the past.
