Tough little event today, the first ever XC Eliminator was held as part of Feilding Festival of Cycling.
A lung burning fun short course based at the velodrome in friendly Feilding.
Start and finish was on the tarmac of the velodrome,with the circuit on a mixture of power sapping grass, soft sand and shingle of the Oroua River bank, a touch of single track breaking out onto a potholed gravel road.
A good turn out of members and supporters were welcomed by the host of the evening Ken Young.
Ken started the evening by covering a few housekeeping matters, like emergency exits and what was the order of proceedings for the evening.
First up was the presentation of the “CHAMPIONS JERSEYS” to the girls. These were presented by Ian McKelvie.
I have transitioned to the new layout for BikeManawatu.
While it’s mostly all working there are a few “teething troubles”, which I’ll sort out over the next little while.
Thanks to everyone who gave feedback.
Why did we change? Well the version of the tools the website is built on (Joomla) had become quite out of date and was no longer supported for security patches. So a complete refresh was the best approach to keeping current and secure.
There was an unexpected disruption to the site during the swap over, but InspireNet have fixed that and all is go.
The content should be identical to the old site, although the Club Ride Calendar was tricky to migrate and there may be some old events that have now disappeared.
