The Christchurch Adventure Park (CAP) will play host to The Phoenix Enduro again in 2020. The Adventure Park is located 20 minutes from the city centre at the base of the Port Hills located to the South-East of Christchurch. The Adventure Park is the New Zealand’s first all year round bike specific chairlift built for riders and their bikes, sporting a 1.8 kilometre chairlift elevating you over 400 metres vertically to stunning views over the Canterbury Plains, Southern Alps and Lyttleton Harbour.
The terrain across the Port Hills can be mixed based on where you ride. We have many technical trails made up of loose dusty soils littered with tree roots, through to molten lava rock where 80% of the trail is on solid bedrock. Having such a great base village hosting events and races is something we are very familiar with. We ran the inaugural Phoenix Enduro early 2019, prior to that we have also held National Champs and NZ Open both for DH discipline, a five race Winter Gravity Series in 2018 and Summertime Enduro Series.
