Top To Bottom, Rude Rock Downhill MTB Course, Coronet Peak, Queenstown

The Rude Rock Downhill Mountain Bike track at Coronet Peak is world-renowned, with Red Bull and the pros often shooting films on this awesome, one-way DH track. Originally built and now maintained by Queenstown Mountain Bike Club (QMTBC), the flowing course has something for everyone. Flat turns, berms, jumps and blind crests make it a pure adrenalin rush for anyone who loves mountain biking. 


Coronet Peak, Queenstown. Follow the signs from the Greengates carpark. The entry to Rude Rock is about a 5 minute ride/push from the bottom of the Greengates Express chair.

Having recently invested in the GoPro Hero 6, we matched it to our GoPro Karma Grip gimbal and shot a top-to-bottom run. Best ridden on a long-travel enduro or DH bike, check out us having a blast as we descend this epic course.
