Bike Manawatu Summer Race Series Feb – March 2023


Hopefully you have seen our summer racing calendar;
Tuesday 31st January – Kairanga ITT
Thursday 16th Feb – Akers Road (Graded RR)
Tuesday 7th March – A1 Loops (Graded RR)
Tuesday 21st March – Colyton 
Tuesday 28th March – Kairanga ITT
To add some spice and healthy competition we will be running a grade points series from the 2 ITT and 2 Graded Road Races with a grade leaders jersey up for grabs. Eligible grades are A, B, C & D
All races have now been posted on our FB page and registrations are open via webscorer (click the links above). You will see on the ITT registration a grade selection field which is not normally required for ITTs. Please chose your grade for the series when registering for the first event which is NEXT TUESDAY. We will be using times from this event to re/confirm dubious grade selections🤣
Riders will not be able to change grades without very good reason. If permitted, any accumulated points will be removed
Standard road bike configuration only is allowed at TT’s. Riders who do compete with TT bikes, discs, clip on bars etc will not be allocated series points
We know its hard to make it to every event so there will be 1 discard – 3 rounds to count
Points will be awarded to the top 10 in each grade on a high scoring basis – 10, 9, 8, 7 etc
First jerseys will be presented at the race 2 briefing 16 Feb. Jerseys are to be retuned at completion of each race to be represented to the grade leads at the following rounds
We hope that with high bragging rights on the line you will enjoy this format and we look forward to seeing how the classification GC battles shape up. Spread to word and lets get some good numbers and make this a great summer of competitive racing.
** Please note due to a rained off event (16.02.23 Akers Road) we have decided to amend our Colyton Hiwinui Loop course which was scheduled as a Handicapped event, but will now be run as a Graded Road Race to complete our Summer Series. Our Essex Cup race will be run at a later date during 2023. Thank you
