NZXC Racing

NZByBike is proud to support the NZXC Team - an international cross country mountain bike team with New Zealand based riders. 

NZXC was formed to reward the determination and effort of New Zealand based athletes and NZByBike is glad to support them in this goal. By 2014, NZXC racing will become a registered UCI trade MTB team and a fully registered elite team by 2016. Its main aims will be retaining and devloping top New Zealand XC atheletes so they can attain world class results. Equally important, the NZXC will promote New Zealand to an international audience of keen cyclists.
