Stop #1 - The Remarkables, Queenstown
5th & 6th September (weather day)
The opening event of the tour is held at the Remarkables, This event is the highest possible sanctioning 3* JFT (below the world championships) & is a huge kick start to the tour for the winners of each catergory.
The Remarkables is situated in Queenstown, the extreme sport world capital. It is a long standing supporter of freeriding and offers some of the top competition venues in the country.
The NZJFT event will be held the weekend after the Remarkables Vertical Drop (previously the weekend of the TNF Frontier). The timing of the first NZJFT event is so the junior's can potentially watch and inspire to the FWQ and rub shoulders with the top Kiwi athletes.
