Tandem mountain bike action at the Giant 2W Gravity Enduro

This week is jam-packed with bike activities in the Southern Lakes. The Queenstown Bike Festival has plenty going on every single day, and if that’s not enough for you, the Giant 2W Gravity Enduro came to town, just over the hill in the Cardrona Valley!

The Cardrona extreme Giant 2W Gravity Enduro is an Enduro mountain bike event akin to that delivered in Europe – epic in size and nature. Riders and bikes of all shapes and sizes came from around the country to enjoy this event.

Meet Rose and Jackson Green… Tandem mountain bike extraordinaires!

Supported by R&R sport, Rose and Jackson designed and built their own full suspension tandem mountain bike – yes that’s right… full-suss!

Coming down from Christshurch, Rose and Jackson will be competing in a number of events throughout the week, pushing their tandem mountain bike for all it’s worth.

Based out of the historic Cardrona Hotel, the 2W Gravity Enduro delivered up to 4800 meters of vertical descent over four stunning special race stages from ridge line and mountain top, right down to the valley floor. Riders get timed on the downs but relax on the ups using shuttle transport provided (self-shuttle option available).

The Cardrona event today went off without a hitch. The sun unfortunately remained behind a thick layer of cloud, but this didn’t deter riders or effect visibility. Results will be posted on the event website here.
