Bike Manawatu’s approach back to cycling under Delta Alert Level 2 guidelines

The Delta variant has spread rapidly worldwide and is now the main variant in many countries, including NZ. It is the most transmissible variant, spreading a lot easier than the original version of the COVID-19 virus and other variants and requires additional consideration.

  • A QR code will be available for all riders, volunteers and spectators
  • Social distancing is to be maintained for everyone during the event, but riders are not subject to it during the active competition part of their race.
  • Masks should be worn by everyone at all times, except during the active competition
  • Hand hygiene,please use sanitizer available if touching surfaces

First Trusthouse Series Race for 2021

Sunday was the first race in the North Island Trusthouse Teams Race Series for 2021.  The race took place in Alfredton over a 34 km lap – Category 1 and 2 rode 3 laps of the circuit, while Category 3 and 4 rode 2 laps of the circuit.  It is a fairly challenging circuit, which was made tougher with the strong winds and intermittent rain.

Bike Manawatu had a team each in Categories 2,3 and 4, with other Manawatu riders taking part in the WCNI team in Cat 2, Matthew Jamieson riding as an individual in category 1, the Manawatu Storage team in category 4, as well as some riders participating in the Green Performance Team in Category 2.

Matthew Jamieson placed 4th in Category 1, after making the step up from racing in Category 2 last year – this is a fantastic result, well done Matthew.

Glenn Kirk’s WCNI team dominated the Category 2 race with Caleb Bottcher riding solo for over 1 and a half laps to take the win, with Jeremy Rowe finishing in 4th and Glenn Kirk  in 7th.  The Total Sheetmetals Bike Manawatu team also had some great results with Adam Francis and Sam Parry in 8th and 9th place.

The standout results in category 3 are from our younger members – Jackson Fellowes who is racing for the Madison Clothing team was first and  Andy Richardson finished 7th only 11.9 seconds behind the winner – both of these young men are racing in this series for the first time.  Dave Jackson and Jackson’s dad Marcus (also racing for Madison Cycle clothing), finished in 2nd and 3rd.

Category 4 was a great race for our locals – Darren Murdie of the Palmfeilds Bike Manawatu team finished in a very close 2nd (1.2 seconds), with Toshi Yamauchi riding for Manawatu storage in 3rd place.  Patrick Johnstone and Darcy Forrester from the Palmfeilds Bike Manawatu team finished in 4th and 10th place, and this team is sitting 2nd in the teams points for the series.

Well done to all riders from the Manawatu who took part – here is a link to the results https://www.webscorer.com/race?raceid=253428

Bike Manawatu had a strong presence at the Kapiti Cycling Cub’s Tineli Winter Series.  We had up to 12 riders take part in various races within the series, with a core group of Chris Harris in A Grade, Mike Dunne, Rob Ryan and Darren Murdie in B Grade and  Wayne Fage in C Grade that showed up to all 4 events.

It is a 4 week series that is run through July and August each year over a relatively flat course leaving from the Te Horo Hall with distances of 60kms and 40kms.

It was a lot of fun for all of those who attended, and fantastic to see so many green Bike Manawatu Jerseys in the peloton. 

Well done to everyone who raced, and thank you to Kapiti Cycling club for running the series - we’ll be back next year
