HILL CLIMB & ITT POSTPONED
WATCH WEBSITE FOR NEW DATES
Bike Manawatu Masters Age cyclists 35 years of age and over intending to enter the Hill Climb and ITT are advised that these 2 events have been postponed.
Originally scheduled for Sunday 26 April 2105 starting from Salisbury Street, Ashhurst up the Saddle Road. As all Manawatu locals will be aware with the Manawatu Gorge now closed and road traffic diverted up the Saddle Road this route is now not safe to hold the Hill Climb. It is the desire of Race Managers, Ian Gray and Mike Keenan, to still hold the Hill Climb up the Saddle Road later this year after the Gorge re-opens. A new date in the spring will be announced and it is hoped by then all re-alignment and surface repairs to the Saddle Road will have been completed.
Individual Time Trial
Postponed on Sunday 29th March 2015. New date TBA, venue Horizon’s Depot at the corner of Kairanga-Bunnythorpe and Rongotea Roads (Bike Manawatu Club Championships are also being held same venue and time).
These events will appeal to non-racing Bike Manawatu Masters age cyclists, but are not exclusive, all club members can enter the events. For the Masters age groups the results will contribute to determining each Grade Champion (5 year age group) and by applying tabled time handicaps to actual times adjusted times are derived and converted to points defining a female & male Bike Manawatu Masters Champion.
