This week Bike Manawatu welcomed home two Junior World Champion track cyclists in Campbell Stewart and Michaela Drummond. Both have recently returned from a very successful trip by the NZ team to Astana in Kazakhstan, with Campbell winning the Omnium and Scratch races, and Michaela being a member of the winning teams pursuit (in new World Record time). All members of Bike Manawatu are very very proud of Campbell and Michaela for their results, but more particularly the hard work and dedication they have shown to get there. Well done!

Champions

From Kerry Hammington:

Sunday 19th July was otherwise engaged instead of cycling, but returning from Kiwitea through Feilding saw the main fast bunch heading out of Feilding across the bridge by the golf course. Wow, ALL the riders went along the bike track and across the path – not on the main part of the bridge. This was lead by some of the younger members of the group from what I could see. How mature and responsible is that? A lesson here for all the recreational cyclists as far as I am concerned – this signifies an intent and message to all motorists that we consider them as we would like to be considered in return.

Well done to that group a couple of Sundays ago, and maybe the slower groups could also take a lesson from the racier cyclists among us.
I salute you.
