Watching in anticipation on TV last week to see Campbell take out his Halberg award for the best emerging talent in New Zealand must have been an excitement highlight for the humble Campbell and his family but also to everyone associated to him in cycling. We are all so proud of you Campbell. A special mention must also go out to Campbell’s coach Mike McRedmond who must also take a bow for a job well done.
A Week of Hard Out Cycling
I write this week’s newsletter while on the BDO Wellington to Auckland Cycle Challenge which is brutal for us weekend cyclists amongst the 275 riders. Myself and Bike Manawatu character Tim Mackey are riding for Bayleys in the Corporate Team Challenge and raising money on Give a Little for”Make a Wish”. Tim and I are having lots of laughs but hurting every day.
At the time I sent this newsletter BM Club Members Glen Kirk is winning with Cliff Hughes and Mike Thompson not too far behind with three days to go. We have had constant wind, rain and even hail to contend with and two hill stages have had to be cancelled due to violent winds. Nice summer we having don’t you think.
