When UNIT asked Andreu if he wanted to come and visit the Australian Gold Coast and head to New Zealand to ride mountain bikes, fmx and bmx at the UNIT Farm Jam, he jumped right on it and started to plan the trip. It was a unique occasion to visit southern New Zealand and shred his YT bikes, DirtLove and Tue in the picturesque mountains surrounding the town of Queenstown.
UNIT FarmJam takes place in a breathtaking location 2 hours away from Queenstown. For the first time, the event hosted freeride motocross. A set of 5 natural terrain jumps was built on a hill and Andreu found himself hitting 140 feet jumps on a borrowed motorbike. The vibe was the best and with riders coming from all over the world, there was no excuse not to ride hard. Staying in Queenstown for 10 days was another new experience for Andreu, the small town, which recalls the Canadian resort of whistler, has a lot to offer.
From riding fast trails at the Skyline bike park to big downhill jumps in the Wynyard area, to ride some of the best-shaped dirt jumps of the world, everything within 5 minutes of driving. Definitely a ‘must come back’ for a longer time.
Behind the camera there was Nick Pescetto that filmed everything and came out with this video from the whole trip.
