A Brief History
Epic Events was started in 2000 by Nick Reader, a highly acclaimed off road motorcyclist with a driving force to create a truly Epic Event business with an initial focus of motorcycle trail rides. The Company quickly developed into the market leader in this industry with the highest participation levels at all rides including an all time high of 1900 riders at Desert Storm in 2005. Rides such as Trail Blazer, Berm Buster and Pumice Blast joined the family of epic trail rides and strengthened the reputation of market leader.
In 2011, the Junior 90 race was added as a prequel to the 4 hour, to give young riders the opportunity to experience the cross country endurance racing scene.
During 2011, Epic Events changed ownership, with Nick handing over the reins to Gordon Sandilands and Claire Bullock, still operating as Epic Events, under Rooms Outside Ltd.
From here on Epic Events is back to its original focus of being solely committed to motorcycle trail and adventure riding . Our aim is to improve the events we already have on offer as well as adding more events for participants and sponsors.
The Epic Events portfolio will continue to expand as we come up with fresh event ideas in epic locations throughout NZ.
