When to break a record...
Most records are broken at the club track Championships (500m Time Trial, 200m flying, Individual Pursuit) during racing at the start of 2016. They can also be broken at track meets on Sunday afternoon when timed events are in the programme, these are often 1 lap time trials and flying laps. In this situation please notify the race manager if you want three watches on the time incase you are close to the record. Sometimes if the conditions are good Ian offers people to express interest in breaking a record and a few people test themselves against the clock. If you have your sights set on one that is not a championship event the best thing is to express your interest to Ian at track.
The next step is West Coast North Island records (often broken at WCNI Championships in Wanganui), then National and World Championship records.
