The Weekend

Pirini Motorbike Park Ride Day

Each and every weekend, on alternating Saturdays and Sundays, Pirini Motorbike Park opens its track and trails to those who ride. This weekend, it’s the Saturday, October 6. The weather is looking perfect, so head down, over, or up to Pongakawa – just do what you’ve gotta do.

Those in the know will be returning for another ride. For those who don’t, you can be sure you’ll have an epic day on the bike, no matter if you prefer the track or the trails.

This weekend, The Fast Times won’t be there. But, like always, snap a photo of “The Maverick” logo that’s pasted on the cabin, tag us on Instagram, and we’ll send you one. The first person to do that was Broxy. But, you know, he’s always been pretty quick.

Learn it. Know it. Live it.

The What: Pirini Motorbike Park Ride Day

The Radventure

Boundary Buster

Alright, have you booked your spot? Trust us, when it comes to the likes of Offlimits’ Boundary Buster, it pays to get in early. That’s ’cause this event sells out in a matter of weeks.

In short, Boundary Buster is a two-day guided ride that lets “radventurers” have access the Waiouru Military Training Area – all four boundaries and 63,000 hectares of it. While you’ve probably driven or ridden past it, chances are you have never ridden through it, which is why it’s a once-in-a-lifetime adventure.

Just so you know, each day is limited to just 150 riders, and that’s why you should book your spot, like, now.

Learn it. Know it. Live it.

The What: Boundary Buster
The Where: Waiouru Army Training Area
The When: Saturday, December 15 + Sunday, December 16

The Race

2018 Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations

First, for us, it’ll always be the Motocross des Nations. But, officially, it’s now the Motocross of Nations. No matter what, it’s still the biggest race of the season, no matter what year it is.

The Monster Energy FIM Motocross of Nations is back in the United States for 2018, where the world’s fastest motocross racers – most of ’em, anyway, right, Marv? – will be on the gate at RedBud. Uh, we mean, RedBuddd

That includes Team New Zealand’s Cody Cooper, Rhys Carter and Hamish Harwood, too. With that, go get it, fellas.

Learn it. Know it. Live it.
