Peak 2 Peak

Posted: August 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

Last weekend I competed with four other friends in a race called the Peak to Peak. Richie Johnston wrote the story up and I thought I would share his post. As the snowboarder, I started the race with approximately 120 others on the start line. I was stoked as I was the fourth skier/snowboarder down and gave our team the head start which everyone held onto throughout the race. Look out for next year!

A much anticipated event to link the two ski mountains in Queenstown took place over the weekend…

Individuals and teams of two to five people race by ski/ snowboard, mountain bike, kayak, foot and road bike from the top of the Remarkables Ski Area to Coronet Peak. Team RISKY BISCUITS entered during the last week of registration with an select few semi-pro athletes from Wanaka & Hawea. With the help of an amazing support crew we had an amazing time racing.

The courses encompasses snow covered mountains, steep gravelled and tarmac ski field access roads, State Highways and tarmac rural roads, public reserve, public walking / cycling tracks, and Lakes Wakatipu and Hayes.

The Race
Stage 1: Ski/Board 2km – Colin Boyd
High on the Remarkables Ski Area. A mass start – run down to skis. Actual start determined by snow cover

Stage 2: Mtn Bike 17km – Richie Johnston
