INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS EVENT

Next step in Club Racing

After our successful link up with BM Schools cycling at Colyton 3 weeks ago and last week at Kairanga for the ITT we are on again this weekend for graded racing around Colyton Hiwinui circuit. (Register Here)
The events team cannot stress enough about the importance of registering early. With the success of BM racing in 2020 we, as organisers, are not prepared to run poor events by having low numbers.
We all know the importance of reaching a balance with the amount of racing that we do and also the type of racing. Many members will take on any course, some will be more choosy. Our challenge as a club is to cater for everyone. At this time of the year we work with schools cycling and their calendar. So there are 2 road races and 2 TTT’s in the next 5 weeks. As I mentioned before, If we don’t get a good amount of entries on line early we would look at cancelling.

Bike Manawatu has 3 teams entered for the North Island series which runs from late September through to end of November.
Many thanks to Michelle Turner and all other racers for getting this together. Part of the races this year are Team Time Trials so with 2 TTT’s on the MSC calendar there will be time to get that discipline sorted.

Ride safe, the shortest day is behind up, ready for a busy spring and summer of racing

Todays race is an ITT of approx. 12 km.

You will be riding on Open Roads at all times and must comply with NZ Traffic Regulations, as well as UCI and Cycling New Zealand Schools Racing Rules

The course will be marshalled, but the ultimate responsibility is with you to ride safely and be aware of other traffic.

If a marshal instructs you to stop you must do so – importantly at the one lane bridge and turn around.

You must keep to the left half of the road at all times.

Do not drop any litter on the circuit, including gels or bottles.

This is an Individual Time Trial. If you are passed by another rider you must not draft that rider. It is the rider that has been passed to drop back from the other rider.

It is your responsibility to be at the start line on time.

Please adhere to all COVID 19 – LEVEL 2 protocols.
