Thank you to everyone who came out and rode our first club race for 2019. It sure was a hot day!

Big shout out to R Line for supplying our riders with great product to #refuel& #rehydrate today. If you didnt make it out to Saturday’s race, don’t worry we have been generously given a few bottles from R-Line to have at our up and coming road races.

Also Bruce McKenzie Booksellers for supplying a special prize for todays race which was won by Deb Cuff chosen for her great riding out there today, "Rider of the Day" Deb gave it her all

Also a special mention to Thomas Stannard who took out Saturday’s race Great work!

Thanks again to everyone who rode or volunteered out there on Saturday, we really appreciate it. Without our volunteers we simply could not run our races.

Also a big thank you to the NZ Racing Board for helping us purchase our new timing system we were able to use for the first time - how cool was it being able to post results so fast – If you or someone you know is keen to train up and learn how to operate our timing, please do let us know. We have some simple easy to follow instructions to help everyone out.

Please find the link to our results HERE

We will also get to trial our brand new timing system which we were able to purchase with the amazing help of our grant funders the NZ Racing Board.
Please note as this is our first time using the system live we do expect teething issues, we'd like to encourage our riders to pre-register online to help with the process, however we will still welcome on the day entries.
Thank you

Wellington Junior Track Champs 2019

This post is dedicated to all of our junior riders, their families & supporters who attended today's Wellington Junior Track Champs. 9 riders, 14 medals, 7 golds, 3 silvers & 4 bronze medals were our total haul. I cannot emphasize enough how proud we were to see our junior riders compete with passion, maintain their safety, show empathy, respect & appreciation to all those present. We certainly livened things up. You have all represented the Bike Manawatu Track Cycling Club with honour, integrity, & pride with distinction of the highest calibre. I personally would like to thank each & everyone of you for taking the time to race today.

Bike Manawatu Track Meeting Results–Tuesday 5th February 2019

Bike Manawatu Track Cycling Championships Results –2 Feb 2019

Boy, we certainly have a "Hearty" bunch of riders who showed up in less than favourable conditions to have a go at our Individual Pursuit club championships. Ewan Cousins produced two extremely awesome rides to come within 2 tenths of a second of Campbell Stewart's 2000m IP record, & then missed the mark by 3 tenths of a second for Angus Claasen's flying 200m record. Harrison Craw broke 3 minutes during his 2000m IP race, & earned himself a prize, yet to be determined by Mr Ian Gray (Harrison likes McDonalds) As for all our other riders, you did blimmin great to post the times you all managed in the wind today. Huge hugs & High 5's to all our "Track Angels" for exceptional time keeping, incredible record keeping abilities, amazing holding power & our supporters for all their heartfelt encouragement for everyone today.
