Tour Te Waipounamu 2021

Cape Farewell, New Zealand

The inaugural Tour Te Waipounamu is the brain child of Brian Alder, a veteran of the sport and a lifelong mountaineer. With experience and inspiration from the Tour Divide, Highland Trail, Colorado Trail Race and Kyrgystan; Brian's event has been tipped as the hardest bikepacking race in New Zealand. A competitive domestic line up includes a former Tour Divide record holder and seven race veterans, Terra Australis victor and a French Divide and Bohemia Divide winner.
