The Karioi Classic is a mountain bike race around the beautiful rugged west coast terrain of Karioi Mountain and the iconic Raglan coastline. The main race starts from the Raglan Fire Station and riders will enjoy a challenging race which covers a diverse track finishing at the Kopua Domain.
The Karioi Classic is mixing things up this year with three divisions available to enter, and each race going in the opposite direction than previous years.
The Karioi Classic is a 43km route, the Classic XL a 57km race and for the elite experienced riders there is the option of the Classic Enduro, a challenging 85km race.
Keep an eye out for some of the entertaining Raglan locals who will be participating at a less competitive level, who often attempt to take on the mountain on a single speed bike in fancy dress.
