BikeManawatu track and road bikes on track racing starts on Monday October 23rd (Labour day). This year you can register online for the season, so that at your first track meet all that is required is for you to sign the wavier form, pay ($20 eftpos for the whole season) and in return you will receive your season number, which will hopefully speed up the registration process.
PRE-REGISTRATIONS CLOSE AT 10AM ON MONDAY 23 OCTOBER 2017. If you miss this deadline you can register before racing at the track. If you are planning on racing with us this season but do not plan to be at the first track meet please still register online (takes less than 5 minutes, just make sure you have your CyclingNZ licence number handy if you have one).
All information is considered confidential, but in registering you agree that your contact information may be shared between organisers if required.
