The 2016 club road racing series kicks off on Saturday (27Feb) with a two-up time trial on the Pyke’s Rd course.

Meet at the corner of Pyke’s Rd and Hwy 56 (road to Himitangi). The course goes out along Pyke Rd, left into Bainesse Rd, turning a few hundred meters before the Bainesse Rd intersection with Hwy 56, then back to the starting point. Total distance is 18 km.

There is good money up for grabs in the five race series and the intention is to enable all riders to have a good shot at winning some cash.
That being the case, most races will be handicapped in some ways, including the two-up TT on Sat.

Handicap times will be based mainly on the Wed night ITT time of the fastest rider of the pair, or otherwise estimated.
For this time trial, we need to standardise bikes the best way possible, so I’d encourage everyone to turn up with their road bikes and normal (not deep dish) wheels. If they do, we will handicap for aero-bars, deep dish wheels, and TT bike. I have a pretty good grasp of the time cost of these on the 12 km Wed night TT course, so will apply these to this 18 km course (pro-rata) if necessary. Again, this is all simply to be fair to all who ride.

The third round of the Autumn Race Series is on this Saturday at Halcombe.

Meet at 1 pm at the Halcombe Hotel next to the roundabout for a 1:30 pm start.

The race will be handicapped, largely based on the results from the first two weeks of racing, and in small groups, so everyone is in the mix to win (and get some prizes). The course is two laps of 20.7 km: starting at Halcombe, up Stanway Rd to Makino Rd; left into Makino Rd heading west; turn into Tokorangi Rd heading back to Halcombe.
