Firepit Thursday night racing series 

As the cold of Winter bites, we're bringing the heat....


Firepit Thursday night racing series, presented by MyRide Motueka

Hot racing, chilled vibes.


Think you know the Kaiteriteri Mountain bike park? Think again.

You'll be racing trails in the dark, more often than not, in reverse!

Guaranteed to get you second-guessing.

After an hour of hot laps, you'll finish at the Fire Pit for a snag, a beer and a bunch of yarns.

Night racing at it's finest.


What to bring...

You'll need your fastest XC weapon here and a lighting system that turns night into day. 

If you don't have either, that's ok. Run what ya brung.

Gravel bikes might be ok. Trail bikes & E-bikes are definitely ok. Kids bikes absolutely ok. 

This is all about community: getting together, sharing good times and of course ....smashing your mates ;)

Entry fees...

$10 per entry for Hivepass members and kids

$15 for non-members


MyRide Motueka has got you here, with spot prizes for each race.


Each entry gets you in the draw to win  the grand prize: A night lighting set-up worth $300

The grand prize winner will be drawn and must be present on the series' final night.
