GT Bike Buller Festival presented by Alpinestars - done and dusted for 2017!
It was three huge days of mountain bike action at the GT Bike Buller Festival presented by Alpinestars.
The atmosphere was electric, the racing was fast, and the weather Gods turned it on for what was an epic weekend all around for over 600 riders and even more friends and families.
