The Giant Minaret Burn is a 62km MTB in Wanaka on Saturday, 19 January 2019, and is part of the Red Bull Defiance weekend.
Set in the spectacular Wanaka high country, the Minaret Mountain Bike offers a once a year opportunity to ride in one of New Zealand’s most prestigious high country stations. This single stage event starts with a barge ride across Lake Wanaka, to the start line on Minaret Station.
The ride itself navigates the shoreline of Lake Wanaka with a combination of undulations and a few steeper climbs. It then descends across a mixture of 4wd and single track. This is a once in a lifetime chance to experience one of Wanaka’s most sought after mountain biking experiences.
