We had a winner of the BikeBarn Lucky Draw on Sunday, Colin Anderson was present but not wearing Bike Manawatu kit. Colin is the winner of Bike Barn’s $310 voucher.
We had a great turnout with over 50 cyclists present on a chilly Sunday morning!
No mention if Colin paid for all the after ride coffees?

I believe that children are our future … was sung by the late great Whiney Houston. And ok, she may not have been talking about cycling, and perhaps to call Under 23 riders children might also be a bit of a stretch – but boy did the younger riders of New Zealand put on a great show at the Elite Road Nationals in Napier over the weekend of 4-6 January.
Bike Manawatu was well represented in the Under 23 age group by the following riders: Joel Yates, Carne Groube, Madi Hartley-Brown, Alex West, Thomas Stannard, Michaela Drummond, Connie O’Brien, Libby Arbuckle and Emily Shearman. We also had one Elite rider Winston Briggs.
The Bike Manawatu Board would like to congratulate all of our riders for their efforts and results, however, we feel that the following results deserve a special mention:
Joel Yates was 3rd in the Men’s U23 Road Race, after a solid 5th place in the Men’s U23 TT 2 days prior
Michaela Drummond was 3rd in the U23 Women’s Road Race
