Saddle Up Riders

Thank goodness that the “official” winter period is coming to a close and spring is just around the corner.
It’s been incredibly frustrating to the BM events group to have to cancel 2 races in the Linton area over the last 2 months due to heavy rain.
They are all tough calls to make, but in both cases were the correct call with heavy rain falling at the very same time that the races were due to be on.
Looking forward to Spring and with that we farewell winter with a race this Saturday at the Akers Road loop. All details are on the website and facebook here.

For riders that haven’t competed in the last 12 months, Rob Ryan and Palmfeild Motors will pay your entry fee.
These events do require a few volunteers to ensure rider safety and that we adhere to our Traffic management conditions so if you bring along Volunteer then you ride for free as well.(numbers limited)
Akers road is a fantastic course that encourages group riding and rotation, essential skills to any events that are coming up in what is a very busy Spring and Summer season of cycling.
We’ve pushed out the start time to sign on at 3.00pm but the process is so much easier when riders pre-register so please help us out with this.

Two weeks after that we run the first round of our clubs championship races. It’s a new and exciting course for the long running Woolworths Cup on September 14th
Traffic management plans are at the council for acceptance. This is a 43 km Handicap race Feilding to Halcombe to Cinders hill to Feilding.
This is an exciting and challenging course to ride solo let alone as groups that will inevitably form…no hiding here.
More details next week on the Woolworths cup.
Busy and exciting times ahead, Track racing starting soon with Wonder Women on Wheels on Saturday 7th which is an opportunity for Girls and women to try their hand at Track Cycling.
The next day Sunday the 8th there is the Endurance ride day leaving Memorial park at 7.00am. This is an open invitation to anyone wanting to push the distance out a little more than usual.
A solid warm up for Woolworths cup the next weekend and lead up to Taupo.

Ride safe, ride positive

Calling all trackies,

The 2020 Oceania Track Championships is the region's premier national track cycling event, held in rotation between Australia and New Zealand.

The event will see the best track cyclists from the Oceania region, including World Championship, Olympic and Commonwealth Games medallists compete for continental honours and valuable UCI points that will go towards Olympic qualification.

The event will be held at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome in Invercargill from 16 -19 October 2019 and will be hosted by Cycling Southland.

Entries will be open from 1 September 2019, closing at 5pm on Tuesday 1st October 2019.  Entries are only accepted through your National Federation, Cycling New Zealand R&T Centres or Australian State Organisation. They will be sent the entry forms. The entry form must be completed by the Centre and returned with payment by 1 October 2019. Please contact them directly no later than 25th Sept 2019.

The Championships are open to OCC National Teams, OCC UCI registered teams, NZ Centre teams or Australian State teams.

Only Oceania Confederation (OCC) riders are eligible to compete in the Championships (ie NZL, AUS, Guam, Fiji, Vanuatu, Cook Islands – along with Tahiti & New Caledonia).

The event is open to Elite and U19 (Men and Women) riders only.

Non-NZL riders must hold a valid International Licence from their federation.
