Every year we have held the 3 Peaks Enduro, we wouldn't have been able to without the help of all of our sponsors, and this year is no different.
First off, we are proud to welcome our new title sponsor for this year, Emerson's Brewery. Located right here in Dunedin, we could not think of a more perfect name to have attached to this event. Along with being the namesake of this year's event, Emerson's will also be hosting the after-party following Saturday's day of racing. With great food on the menu and even better beers on tap, We're sure it'll be a great way to wrap up day 1 of the race.
Even though Emerson's is the name on the race, we still would not be able to pull this all off without the help of all of our other sponsors:
Camelbak - Long known in the mountain biking scene for their hydration packs (perfect for carrying plenty of water and supplies for races like 3 Peaks), Camelbak has hooked us up with a ton of packs and other swag for prize giving this year, as well as being on of our major sponsors.
100% - Arguably one of the most popular brands among the downhill scene in Dunedin, you'd be hard pressed not to see a number of riders sporting 100% goggles, helmet or gloves shuttling Signal Hill. 100% has gifted us a few pairs of goggles, gloves, and even some shirts and hoodies to hand out at this year's event.
Sweet Cheeks - Wanaka based company providing chamois cream and other fantastic products. There products are made from beautiful natural ingredients and its what we use ourselves. We have a bunch to give away as prizes.
Cactus Outdoor - Based out of their Christchurch headquarters, Cactus Outdoor makes some of the most durable and long-lasting work wear in all of Aotearoa. They've been on on board as one of our sponsors for a couple years now, and for good reason. We can't get enough of their awesome shorts.
G-Form - Leading the game in new-age protection technology, G-Form has hooked us up with several pairs of their new knee/shin pads and elbow pads for prizes.
New World - Dunedin's Centre City new world is the best super market in town! They have donated a $250 meal voucher that we use to buy food for the feed zone.
Ground Effect - Providing cyclists with bike-specific, NZ-made gear since 1994, Ground Effect are whole hearted supporters of what they call the "Cycling Revolution". They've provided us with a ton of their awesome socks and beanies to give away to some of the volunteers.
Taste Nature - Dunedin's local organic garden, store, and eatery, Taste Nature is providing lunches for each of our volunteers throughout the weekend. Just like the race wouldn't be the same without our sponsors, our volunteers are the backbone of the race, and keeping them well-fed is key to a successful event!
WTB - Fuelled by a desire to create durable and reliable mountain biking-specific equipment, WTB is a shop favourite for their bomb-proof tyres. They tossed us a few of those awesome tyres as well as some other goodies to give away come race time.
