WCNI Nationals Selection
If you haven't expressed your interest yet please do so. More information here.
WCNI are asking for riders interested in riding Elite/U19 and/or AgeGroup national track championships for WCNI to express interest, so that the selectors know who they are keeping an eye out for.
Track nationals and WCNI track event dates and locations (Feilding, Levin, Wanganui and WCNI Championships) can be found on our BikeManawatu Track Programme here.
If you are new to this whole track cycling scene and don't really know what's happening or what is required to get to track nationals feel free to talk to any of us more experienced trackies over at Feilding or for specific WCNI questions contact Kim Andersen.
