Congratulations BM racers

We would have to go back a long way to find Bike Manawatu, as a club,  getting one up on our WCNI neighbours for an interclub trophy.
On Saturday 29th BM managed to overcome a pretty hefty points differential to come out victorious over Wanganui Cycling.
Run over a 2 race series, one at home and one away, it came down to 2 points. What’s more the small margin came down to the riders who stuck at it even when their day seemed to be over, and finished the course to claim points.
In points races like this…it’s not about the winners on the line.
58 Riders from 4 clubs over 5 grades covered the Stanway-Makino Halcombe loop on a beautiful winters morning.
Cool breeze but really ideal conditions on what is a challenging course on a good day. A great variation on grade winners form all clubs. I’m sure next year Wanganui will come back stronger than  ever.

Next Sunday 14th July sees the second Flat Track race of the winter at Akers Road. Info here
We will have a 9.30am start which will allow the Memorial park groups to ride out to Linton at their  normal Sunday start time, race in what ever grade they choose and either ride home for a coffee or continue on their longer ride.
In general terms A grade is around 40 km average, B grade 35, C grade 32, D grade 28, E grade >28
This race is brought to you by Hughes Joinery, Palmfeild Motors and Morgan Property Advisors.
Akers - 2019-20 BM Race 2 Akers Road
