Special congrats go to Tony Tinworth (winning grade B) Stephen McDonald, (1st Grade C) Scott Davenport (2nd Grade C) and Thomas McKay (3rd Grade C). Sheryl braved the wind to get second in the ladies 2 laps with Tracey Hawkes 3rd.  Full results are under the results tab.

Thanks go to all the helpers from the club, especially Susan and Graeme who helped with the shopping on Saturday as well as marshalling and helping in the kitchen. Thanks also to Warren Watts, Wendy, Nigel, Tina, Maddie and Mat from the MTB club for doing the timing.

The gliding club venue proved very good and would appreciate any feedback you may have. 


14 Taupo Cycle Club members braved the cold and took to the races at Tokoroa for Race 2 of the Interclub series.

Congratulations to the Womens 40k riders, Hannah Howell, Melissa Johnson and Lynette Braithwaite taking 1st, 2nd and 3rd respectively. Also congrats to Kiaan Watts, First in Grade B, (Tony Tinworth just missing out in 4th) Stephen McDonald and Jack Edwards, 2nd and 3rd in Grade C. Full Results are under the results tab   


5 club members took on the wind and roads in the back of Rotorua to race Tokoroa and Rotorua clubs with mixed results. 

1 win, 1 puncture, 1 sixth place and 2 nearly rans earned the club 35 points for this years shield.

Well done to Megan Lockett for her win, great race. Lets hope theres more of us in Tokoroa on 21st June.

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