November 27-28, 2021 the CSS NZ will launch from the brand new Matangi Station Mountain Bike Park in Alexandra. 

Events: Super D

The new Matangi Station MTB is set to open in summer 2021/2022 and will unearth some of Alexandra, and Central Otago’s most raw, rocky and technical trails. For years local riders have said the trails on Matangi Station are world class, now riders will get to find out for themselves. Alexandra is a cyclist’s haven with riders coming from all over the world to get amongst their famous tracks; from easy-riders strolling through the countryside to mountain bikers scrambling over single-track. Whatever speed you choose to get away from it all.

Alexandra is also a hub to accessing Central Otago’s three Great Rides, including NZ’s Original Great Ride the Otago Central Rail Trail, the Roxburgh Gorge Trail and Clutha Gold Trail. The nearby Lake Dunstan trail opened May 2021 to great fanfare and has been received well with those testing the dirt.

With incredible scenery and over 300km of off-road cycling, mountain biking and walking tracks, stunning wineries and cellar doors, spectacular heritage sites, art galleries, boutique accommodation, great restaurants, and a fair few pubs, there’s something for everyone.
