Masters Riders Return from France.

Welcome back to Stu McKenzie and Wayne Butcher last week who cycled for six weeks on a Tour de France circuit that sounded incredibly scenic and very hard. Stu showed up at last Friday’s “BM Happy Hour” having only arrived back in NZ the day before looking extremely fit and tanned.  I am yet to see Wayne who know doubt will be looking the same if not better. You be the judge.

Simon van Velthooven

Simon riding at the peak of his career over the last few months unfortunately missed out on the Rio Olympics games team which is so unfair.  The Rhino is our hero here in the Manawatu and with the Commonwealth games in the Gold Coast around the corner I hope will spur him on to win a place back in the NZ team for those games.  He is a great guy and a great ambassador for our country and region.
