Experience more of NZ
This initiative was designed to encourage clubs and our BMX Community around New Zealand to engage with the event and to offer our international BMX riders the opportunity to experience the hospitality of other clubs and regions in New Zealand as they prepare for the Rotorua round of the 2024 UCI BMX Racing World Cup. Clubs and BMX Supporters from around the country have created special invitations which we encourage all BMX riders and teams to consider these as part of their programme while in New Zealand.
