The Kaiteriteri 6 Hour, presented by Port Nelson Ltd, kicksthings off on Saturday 16<span style="font-size: small;">th April. Based at the Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp there’s a rolling start along the beach front before the serious action starts in the Kaiteriteri Mountainbike Park proper. The course utilises many of the easier tracks, so is suitable for all riders with some basic mountainbike experience.
Categories are men's, women's and mixed teams (2-4 riders per team), schools (secondary and intermediate) and for those who just don't know when to relax and have fun there's solo as well.
It’s a fun event, with plenty of people getting in the spirit of things and coming in costume. Bring the family, those not riding can enjoy the beach, mini golf and everything else Kaiteriteri has to offer.

Plenty of prizes on offer, including a retro women's Malvern Star Wisp Lite bike from Motueka Bike Shed and a 32 inch Panasonic TV from Reliance Betta Electrical, and spot prizes throughout the day.
This is our major fundraiser for the year, with proceeds going into park development.

Sunday sees the introduction of the Jaws Enduro. This will run on intermediate to advanced tracks in the park over three timed predominantly downhill stages. No prizes for guessing that the final stage will incorporate the full length of Jaws… Numbers for the Enduro will be limited, initially offered to those registering for the 6 Hour.

If downhill speed isn’t your thing, the Nelson Orienteering Club is holding a Mountainbike Rogaine on Sunday also. This was a popular addition to the weekend last year, and sees teams try to accumulate as many points as possible from checkpoints in the area within the allotted time.

 Accommodation:
The Kaiteriteri Beach Motor Camp has been instrumental in the formation of the mountainbike park, and is the perfect place to stay during the weekend. Bring your tent or caravan, or book a cabin (subject to availability). For the weekend they are offering 20% offaccommodation for entrants – just mention that you’re part of the Kaiteriteri Weekender at the time of booking.

 So time to get your team organised and get ready to enter!
