We are good to go for 2015 Schools National Road Cycling championships!
An exciting change to the top school competition!!!
There will be 2 divisions
Top Senior Boys and Girls School
H.A Joli cup and A.J Drake Cup
For years 9-13
Top Junior Boys and Girls School
Chris Ginders Cup and Marie Laycock Cup
For years 7&8.
Points will be earned as in the past.
We anticipate only one crossover grade … The u14 races. Those age group competitors will take their points to their respective divisions.
Eg if a year8 wins the u14 road races and a year 9 is second the year 8 takes his points to the junior competition and the year9 to the senior competition!
Important Notice – Nationals Road Race, Day Two.
After careful consideration by Race Officials, the Traffic Safety team and Event Organisers, it has been decided to run the Road Race as a left turn circuit. While riders will have to take extreme care negotiating the quick down hill sharp left turn from Watershed Road onto Colyton Road, this change will make all intersections and the finish much safer. Please note the new finish line on the attached map.
There have been numerous requests for clarification about gearing for schools events.
NZSCA HAS NOT MOVED TO NEW ROAD GEARINGS. 6.61m LIMITS HAVE NOT CHANGED!
