Michaela Drummond Bronze at World Track Cycling Champs

Michaela second from the left
Congratulations to Michaela Drummond and her amazing Bronze medal performance in the team pursuit at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, the first NZ women’s team since 2011 to have medalled in this event. To top that off, this is Michaela’s first year at elite level and she clocked a personal best time of 4.20.17. A huge effort.
Her successful world championships didn’t stop there. The gruelling Madison and her outstanding ride for 4th place in the Madison in only her and her team mate Racquel Sheath fifth time of riding the Madison was an eye opener.
Our local girl and her support team have done themselves, the club and New Zealand proud and will hopefully inspire all club cyclists what is possible to achieve.

Bike Manawatu Board

Please join us to congratulate two newly voted on board members Tim Lloyd and James Denholm who are well known to Bike Manawatu members. Firstly, Tim who is a masters cyclist who has been heavily involved with Schools cycling over the past few years brings his contagious enthusiasm for the sport to the board. Secondly James at only 20 years old will bring fresh new ideas and a wealth of cycling knowledge to our board for his young years. Two great people to represent our club.
It is exciting times ahead as the club looks to unite all club members. Our current board of Peter McCarthy, Mike Craine, Tim Lloyd, James Denholm and myself look forward to your support as the club build on the love we all have for cycling.
