CHECK OUT THE BEST RATED DIRT BIKE TRAILS IN NZ.....

We are a company specialising in off-road motorcycling events, dedicated to bringing you great trail riding, cross-country racing, and awesome adventure rides throught NZ.

At Epic Events we aim to lead the field with the safest and best managed motorcycle events.

Our events are our passion and our way of life...Whether you’re new to the dirt biking circuit, or itching to make your first run, there are always a few techniques and things to keep in mind that can make your ride both safe and exciting when out on the dirt bike trail!

  1. Body Positioning – there’s always a best place to position your weight, put your body, and balance when sitting and standing.
  2. Good Handle Bar Control!
  3. Be Light on the Bike – this means laying off and letting the bike do what it was designed to do.
  4. Uphill Techniques – only two, the easy way and the hard way!
  5. Downhill Techniques – master body positioning, steering and braking.
  6. Acceleration – remember to use light pressure on the bars, pinch the tank with knees when standing, and make use of your stomach muscles.
  7. Stand up, look ahead, keep momentum!

Of course, there’s a lot more to dirt biking than you’ll find on this short list, and it takes a lot of riding to hit the trails like a professional.

Our rides have tracks for ALL abilities, and in Taupo they're on all weather pumice terrain, offering exceptional traction no matter what the weather!

Epic Events welcomes you and your bike at our events and we promise to provide you with a fantastic ride!

The safety of all our riders is of utmost importance to us! In order to support the health and wellbeing of everyone;

 Please DO NOT attend any event if you:
