This is an invitation for Bike Manawatu riders, both male and female, to be part of the “Elite Flying Kilo” event in Rotorua on Feb 13th.

The Flying Kilo is basically a 1km scratch race, but in a straight line – the 20 best riders they can muster in a one-off 1km race down the tarmac. The riders will be brought up to speed by a lead vehicle, which will pull away at the flag, and 1km all out race is on. There will be separate Men’s and Womens events.
