It was a great day for the Bike Manawatu track team who travelled down to Wellington on the 1st November for annual Laykold Cup. There was some tough and tight racing over the A, B and C categories and it was a privilege to have the Cycling NZ team there.
Ben Murphy had a great day coming away with a first place in the points race and elimination race, and a 2nd in the Wheelrace and 2 lap Derby. Sophie Peters rode strongly to place 1st in the 2 lap Derby and 3rd in the Wheelrace. Congratulations to them both on their results, they rode some smart races throughout the day. It was especially exciting to watch them race against the NZ women in the 2 lap Derby, and to see the NZ men's team smash the team pursuit time by over 5 seconds.
Club recreational rides leave from Memorial Park, Napier Rd, at 8:00am on Sundays
