We’re excited to announce Shimano New Zealand have joined forces with the Volcanic Epic as naming rights sponsor. To celebrate, Shimano are giving one lucky participant an XT Wheelset. Read on to find out how to win...
Ahead of Volcanic Epic 2024's launch, we made the difficult decision to discontinue our ebike category for the event.
We love ebiking, and appreciate all those who came and made the first edition so special. Combining ebikes and non-ebikes was always going to be an experiment. Globally, it's not common for ebikes to be included in stage race events, but we wanted to give it a shot.
Despite the setbacks, how good were the trails at Tokoroa? I wanted to follow up on Saturday's stage at Cougar MTB Park with a bit of an overview and thank you.
We've made some minor course changes to Stage 1 of the Tineli Volcanic Epic. Read more below.
We know training for the Volcanic Epic can be tough. So we've got some epic advice from our nutrition partner CLIF to help you with training, recovery and even event day performance.
The more you train, the more important your pre- and post-workout nutrition and hydration becomes. With bigger demands on your body, you require more nutrients and fluids for peak performance and fast recovery. This also prevents hunger during your activity, sudden energy drops, and excessive weight loss from sweating
So now you know what to do and not to do, in theory - what does that actually look like for your Volcanic Epic training and event week?
