It all comes down to 60 minutes

It's a moment for you all to grab your cowbells, stock up on fries and Roosters beer and/ or ginger beer, and get along to EIT to scream you lungs out, for this weekend the Cyclocross National Championships descends on the Hawkes Bay. Don't miss out on being part of our own little piece of history, plus you can still ride the fun events before the hitters get underway. So, enter online right now, it's the same $10 cash only you always pay for the Bay Ford Cyclocross series. Not sure if you can make it, enter anyway, and if you can't come along no stress you only pay on the day.

What an awesomely successful road Champs that was. Congratulations to all our riders, coaches, managers and parent support - you did us proud out on the road and the camaraderie and support amongst you all was fantastic to see.

There were countless podiums from all the schools across every grade and discipline as well as many personal best performances.

For many it was the first time to gauge where you sit on national ladder - and you are right up there.

The Manawatu has real strength and depth with the intermediates feeding into the high schools which ultimately saw PNBHS take out the overall school title for a second year in succession. Well done boys!!!
