It is completely up to you how much time and energy you devote towards preparing for the Motatapu but like most things, the more you prepare, the more you'll enjoy it! The things you'll need to think about before the race takes place are:
• Personal preparation (e.g. fitness & nutrition)
• Event Transport and Accommodation (often sells out)
• Mandatory Gear List & Compulsory Bike Check
• Weather Conditions (layers etc.)
Make your race morning transportation stress-free and book our easy shuttle service pre-event to the start line, and/or post event from the finish line.Transport needs to be booked and confirmed prior to event day. Be sure to organise your transport early (as it sells out every year!), choosing your route carefully as last minute changes are usually difficult.
