Cycle Challenge Wrapup

Thank you all who volunteered on Friday evening.  It was a great event, and the course was an improvement on the longer course of previous years.  Some pretty impressive speeds going down Tongariro street.

Well done to all those who entered & completed the various events - around the lake, MTB etc.  Ex Taupo rider, Frank Sutton, had a great ride in the Elite Men & finished a strong 6th, in a very quick time.

Some of our club juniors where part of the Taupo Nui A Tia Relay team that took out 2nd place overall in the 4 person Relay Team event on Saturday in a time of 5 hrs 34 mins, beaten only by a team of 4 men. Their time also placed them 1st in the mixed team division and they were the 1st school team home - earning themselves $500.00.  Team members were Jack Edwards (leg 1), Maddy Edwards (leg 2), Joep Lenior (leg 3) and Hannah Howell (leg 4)
