Taupo Cycling Club

Our Penultimate ride 

Thanks to all who made it out on a rather cold and windy night. 

Results are up here 

Next Tuesday we are hoping to run a three person team race, details are as follows 

April Fools Race Night. Tuesday April 1st.

 

Teams of 3 drawn out of the hat. (1 from each group, A/B, C, D/E/Juniors)

Teams have to finish as a team of 3.

The format is: 

The teams set off, and do a total of 6 laps, but after lap 3 one person drops off, then one on the bell lap, leaving the remaining team memeber to finish.

Should make for some excitment.  

Cash Prizes for first 3 teams

No drafting between separate teams, drafting in a team allowed.

BBQ/drinks at the race track after

Prize giving for Summer series.

Bring your bike and helmet on your car, it’ll be dark when we finish.

 

Cost per head $5, juniors $0

 

Essentially the evening is subject to interest, let me know you to want it to happen and I’ll make it happen.   Please e-mail Barry at barry@dbcon.co.nz. Asap.

So the first night was on the 21st Jan, and a moderate turn out, maybe the wind and cyclone June had something to do with it, However a hardy bunch turned up for some good racing, esp the A grade was a good hit and with a big lunge to get over the line.

We seened however to have a little confusion over C grade, if you can help out that would be good.

Results are here  Summer_Series_race_results_2014_Jan_21.pdf

Look forward to seeing you again on the 28th 

Yes the ever popular summer series is starting up again at the Taupo Motor Sport park.

Kicking off on the 21st Jan; Registration and seeding from 5.40.

Remember to park in the building next to the track

Once again sponsored by Pak N Save Taupo

And just a reminder that racing is free for two meetings, after that you MUST register with Bike NZ the link is here http://www.bikenz.org.nz/ 

Any questions email barry@DBCON.co.nz or carl.smith@fiber-fresh.com

See you there!

 

The results are self-explanatory and based on these results I would like to suggest the following changes to benefit and be fair to all riders:

  • Tony Tinworth is promoted to A Grade
  • Chris Todd is promoted to B Grade
  • John Kuper is promoted to C Grade

These are my suggestions only and I welcome your comments.

Happy new year to you all and look forward to seeing you on Tuesday.

We need you!

Taupo cycling club needs you! 
we have had a number of our wonderful committee members resign and move away from here. 

I know it sounds cliched but we can only run the club on volunteer help.
