A21-MTOSS with a mission at the Pioneer

MTOSS Racing has 3 teams participating in this year’s Pioneer mountain bike race in New Zealand. The Pioneer is a stage race based in Queenstown, where riders tackle a six-stage race in teams of two. Each stage is between 21km and 101km, with 1100m to 3500m vertical metres of climbing each day.

The MTOSS contingent is comprised of 3 teams that are riding to promote an organisation called A21, a not-for-profit organisation on a mission to abolish slavery everywhere, forever. The organisation works to rescue those caught in slavery and their perpetrator to justice. A21 are driven by the hope that in a single moment a number can turn into a name, a tragedy into a victory, and a belief into an action.

The three teams are:

  1. MTOSS Racing – Andrew Fell (32-2) and Michael Harris (32-1)
  2. A21 Linc-n-Lister – Linc Carlon (361-1) and Peter Lister (361-2)
  3. A21 AAA – Peter Selkrig (World Solo 24hr MTB Champion x 2) and Søren Lind Wenck (2 x Cape Epic Finisher)

After the Prologue and Stage 1, the MTOSS teams are in 14th, 15th & 50th overall amongst 269 teams.

In addition to the Pioneer, MTOSS Racing will also field teams at the Cape Epic race in South Africa, to be held in March 2019.
