Akers Rd Club Race

Last Saturday was the first of the year’s club road races; a graded scratch race held at Akers Rd.
Conditions were excellent for racing, not being too windy or too hot on a flat, sometime exposed course.
The A grade field, though small completed each of their 7 km laps at over 40 km per hour, Robert Stannard winning in a sprint from Nate Levin. James Denholm was third. A combined B and C grade was the race of the day, with the various attacks coming to nought and a sprint finish resulted. Dale Nicholls was the winner, with a dead-heat for second between Fergus Washington-Smith and Thomas Stannard. In D grade, and impressive and comprehensive solo win by young Sam Perry meant that he’ll be riding C grade next time! Second and third were Kyra Craine and James Gardiner respectively. It was great to see some new young club members out there racing.

Next road race is the club championships time trial at Kairanga on the morning of Sunday 29th. Helpers are desperately needed on the day. If you can assist, please email Steve Stannard at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Final Time Trial Results

Well, the final night of the Spring Time Trial Series was a lesson in the benefits of not turning up on the fastest night of the season! The only people to improve their times were those NOT racing last week. Even the ever-consistent Barry Gilliland did not manage a final 2 point week, finishing 12 seconds outside his previous best time.

So, in farewell for now, a big shout out to The Time Trial Team of Trusty Volunteers, who helped out each week and know their jobs better than I do. Plus our first time turn-around man, who managed to find the turn-around sight unseen and get everyone around safely. Another shout out to Manawatu Triathlon Club, who consistently provided a share of riders each week, with a standing ovation for their dedicated president, Dave Scott, who turned up this week despite competing in the Taupo Iron Man Triathlon on Saturday. Many of the younger riders know exactly how he felt having themselves competed in the InterSchool Triathlon earlier today.

Upcoming Races

This Saturday (14th March) there will be a graded club race at Akers Rd. Meet at Linton Country School at 1 pm for a 1:30 pm start. The course is very flat and should suit all riders. Please let Steve Stannard know if you are able to help on the day. We will require two or three corner marshals, and a finishing judge.

The Bike Manawatu Club individual time trial championships will be held on Sunday 29th of March. Details to come next week, including how to enter and distances for each age group. Briefly however, there will be two distances, 15 km and 25 km and we will allow all club members to come and ride as the Club Champs. This was originally going to be also the WCNI champs, but that will be held later in the year.
