Dear Parents/Guardian 20 February 2013
Since 2009, several Manawatu Schools have combined to put on a Schools Cycling Camp. We have been to Apiti School and Rathkeale College previously. In 2013 we want to combine the Camp with the Bush Tour in Pahiatua. The purpose of the camp is to challenge the boys and girls physically, to team build, to do some cycling skills work, to set goals for 2013 and to have some fun.
The cost of the camp is $52.50. This covers: Accommodation $25.00, food including Saturday dinner & Sunday breakfast $12.50, $5 to cover staff costs and $10 for Petrol/gift vouchers for helpers. (This does not cover the cost of the Bush Tour.) This must be paid to the school finance office by Friday, 1 March.
The Camp is at the Masters Hall, Pahiatua (www.mastershall.co.nz ) which is on the left as you head out of Pahiatua towards Eketahuna. The camp is on Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 March.
Good weather, great turn out 64 riders and a nice little circuit were the ingredients for good racing. A grade could not get a single moment of rest with Mike McRedmond and Luke McCarthy riding a long them on their motor bike firing them up. At the end a two men break away Jaycob Humphreys and Matiu Kaihau battled it out for the line honours with Jaycob being the fastest on the day.Thanks to the helpers on the day very much appreciated. B grade had a good solid race. The bunch stayed together the whole race. This gave a peloton sprint finish. To keep it as fair and save as possible it is important to keep a straight line and not to look around when engaged in the sprint. Not doing so leads to disqualification. C grade a decent bunch of younger riders. The 4 D graders were scaled up and started with the C grade. After 3 laps Jamie Leader proofed to be the fastest at the line.
Thanks to the helpers on the day very much appreciated.
