Novice Tour 2020 – Postponed

Bike Manawatu has been closely monitoring the COVID-19 (coronavirus) situation.

Our Novice Tour of Manawatu organising committee got together to discuss our event last night. Based on the information that we have at hand and the pace as which this situation is escalating we have made an early decision to postpone our event until later in the year.

We assessed our event and the impact it may have on the welfare and health of our members, riders, event organisers, volunteers, officials, spectators and the New Zealand public.

We realise this is a period of uncertainty and appreciate our cycling community's support.

We apologise for the inconvenience that may cause however please understand the decision has not been an easy one for us.

We will work on reimbursing all entry fees and notifying riders, officials, vendors,volunteers and sponsors etc in due course.

Great work to our WCNI AGTN 2020 Team

After a great few days in Invercargill, the 2020 AGTN came to an end last night with the Under 15's Point Races and the U17 Madison. The WCNI riders rounded out a successful meet with some cracking rides from Kylah Gunn, Ta and Harrison Craw in the Points Races, and Jack Overweel and Riley Tunnicliffe in the Madison; but not quite enough for another WCNI trip to the podium.

Thanks to everyone for all the support - you can see from the results that what you do works! A special thanks to the financial and kit sponsors (RITA, #CentralBikeStudio, The Tank Guy, Beehive), the Rider's clubs Cycling Wanganui, BikeManawatu and WCNI as a whole.

The final tally from the meet was:
3x Gold Medals (Jack Overweel - U17B 500 TT, Harrison Craw - U15B Derby, Ta & Harrison Craw - U15B 500m Team Sprint).
2x Silver Medal (Jack Overweel - U17B Match Sprint, Ta Craw U15B 500m TT).
1x Bronze Medal (Harrison Craw U15B 500m TT).
1x National and NZ Champs Record (Ta & Harrison Craw - U15B 500m Team Sprint).
...heaps xPBs (all riders - Riley Tunnicliffe, Wilson Hannon, Lochlan Foote, Jack Overweel, Georgia Simpson, Kylah Gunn, Ta Craw, Harrison Craw).
