2021/2022 Race Results Rd9 - 18th January 2022

Sorry for late notice getting these results out, for some reason email from Dave our race manager ended up in my junk folder. Was great to be back out on the track after Christmas break, thanks to everyone for their patience while access was sorted out with new track owners and management team.


2021/2022 Race Results Rd8 - 7th December 2021

Great turn out last night for the penultimate round for the year, next week is the last round before a break over the Christmas period. We will start back up in the new year on the 18th January 2022…remember to do some riding over the break and not eat too much Christmas pudding but most of all have fun and stay safe. Well done to our race management crew for providing us with a slightly different format for the racing last night, something to keep us thinking and providing a different challenge. See everyone next for the last race for this part of the season!


2021/2022 Race Results Rd7 - 30th November 2021

Well done to the riders who turned up last night...we managed to get our races off on a mostly dry track before the rain. Hopefully still a fun night for all and remember if you don’t get your fix of riding on a Tuesday night there are other club activities; 6pm on Wednesdays at the Velodrome (fixies only but club has bikes for use if you don't have one) and 8.30am Sunday for a bunch ride from Suncourt Plaza.


2021/2022 Race Results Rd6 - 23rd November 2021

Another night of tough conditions last night with the wind making for selective racing, well done to all who took part. Hopefully still a fun night for all and remember if you don’t get your fix of riding on a Tuesday night there are other club activities; 6pm on Wednesdays at the Velodrome (fixies only but club has bikes for use if you don't have one) and 8.30am Sunday for a bunch ride from Suncourt Plaza.


2021/2022 Race Results Rd5 - 16th November 2021

Another great night of racing last night with our team of volunteers working hard pulling out the stops to run a points race for us. This was our 2nd week in a row that had been booked for another group but freed up for us to take to the track and have fun. Thanks again to Taupo motorsport track and our sponsors, Tipsy Trout and Pack and Pedal for their ongoing support.


2021/2022 Race Results Rd4 - 9th November 2021

Another great night for racing last night with fantastic conditions and the good news is we have the track next week too, Tuesday 16th November. Next week we will try for a points race to mix things up (weather and helper dependant), thank you to Dave and all our helper without whom the racing could not happen!

We had an accident last night in C-grade, what was good to see was so many riders stopping and looking after each other. This is the reasons we are grateful to have the track to race on because when we have these racing incidents, the risk is sufficiently lower than on the road. Hope bodies and bikes involved are alright!


Rd3 - 2nd November 2021

Well done to everyone who took part last night, the wind made for selective racing. Too those people who stepped from C-grade to B-grade, thank you, we need to look at ways of reducing C-grade size to make judging more manageable for our volunteer’s....we can still assess grades as needed if the step up did not work. Remember next week currently scheduled for a Monday Race...keep an eye on Facebook for updates as they happen. 


2021/2022 Race Results

Results of Tuesday night’s race 2 for 2021/2022 season.

2019/2020 Series Final Results

Hi Everyone,

We hope everyone is settling into thier isolation and staying safe and following the rules set in place so we can all get back out there sooner that later,

Here are the finalized results along with the times from the last race the Hill Climb.



Race Cancelation

Hi All
Due to the rapidly evolving situation regarding Covid 19 and the recommended guidelines regarding social distancing and reducing group gatherings the committee has made the difficult decision to cancel the last race of the Spring / Summer series scheduled to have taken place this Tuesday the 24th March at the Bruce McClaren Motorsport Park. The points accrued to date will be the final placings for the entire series.

We will also be postponing the Prizegiving & AGM that was due to take place at Ploughmans Restaurant on the 31st March 2020. We will advise an alternate date when there is more clarity around the Pandemic and when it is more appropriate to get together as a group.

We understand that many of you may be disappointed regarding this decision, but our members safety and the safety of the wider community as a whole, is our no 1 priority. We encourage you all to keep active, think of alternate ways to keep your peddles turning such as Zwift and alternate riding options and would look forward to seeing you all later in the year.

Look after yourselves and your families, stay safe everyone

Taupo Cycling Club Committee

Tena koutou Katoa
Thanks to all those who raced in the recent Summer Series. I found the
racing challenging and I had to work very hard at times - you can't ask for
much more.
It was brought to our attention that there is an error in the C
Grade results -* Ivan Abele score adds to 33* while Geoff Purdies adds to*
29*. This makes *Ivan first*, Geoff second, just ahead of Sammie, who
retains third.
This may have been what the shouting was about at prizegiving, but Stuart
and I couldn't hear it upwind, where we were standing.
Sorry to take the moment away from Ivan, but a new first place certificate
is on the way. (New one for you too, Geoff!)
Re-awarding of medals has happened at National Chapionships - points races
most often -, so not a unique occurrence.
A bunch of races don't organise themselves, and although we have sponsors
who get thanked, and deservedly so, the races are brought to you primarily
by Tina and Kerry Edwards, who have come back to support cycling through the
involvement of their children - Maddy and Jack,( 3rd Generation road cycling in the Edwards family) who still remains in town.*
Without them there wouldn't be any racing*. The rest of the committee help
out - but organising club racing is not where the rest of our focus and
passion lies.
If you have an issue, with any way the club is run, come and talk to us.
Don't email, don't yell, talk. If you don't like something, and can think
of a better way to do it, tell us. If you can run a race, judge a race,
organise sponsorship, keep track of finances liaise with council, other
clubs and organisations,, attend WBOP meetings ..., then let us know - it
is a lot of work for six people (and sometimes it is not even our priority,
we have life stuff too.) If you can help, do so; If you can't....then you
really can't complain, or the people who were doing stuff may take their
volunteer time somewhere else. Thanks you to those of you who are
appreciative and offer support and thanks.

What a great way to finish the year.  We need your support to make sure we get the title.  Remember the mountain bikers have won it for the last 2 years.  They scrapped in last year.  Lets make sure we have riders in all grades.  Our women riders - we need you!!  So get out there, & enjoy yourselves.

2012: Taupo cycling at the Brendon McFee North Island Champs

After three years the Brendan McGee Memorial track carnival in Te Awamutu was finally on. The weather turned it on for the Track cycling contingent of the Taupo cycling club who turned up in force to race all the races in all the grades. Local talent Patrick Bevan raced well all day taking out the coveted Brendan McGee Memorial 15000m. Also placing well and showing a competitive set of wheels  in the hardest category was Corby Price who was competing in the same grade as Patrick. Tony Tinworth, Claire Hume, and Lewis Eccles were our most successful local riders of the day each taking out 2 wins each in the various races on the day. A very special mention for all the other riders that also raced hard and placed well all day. Abby Eccles, Beth Owen, Jaymie King, Isla Sando, Sam Dobbs, Brendan Hawkins, and Adian Hawkins.  This bodes well for the Waitangi day Track carnival to be held here in Taupo Febuary 6th. Racing starts at 10am. Support on the day will I’m sure make our riders ride faster on the day in front of a home crowd. For more information on Track cycling and what’s happening in the local cycling scene visit the Taupo Cycling club web site.
