Information for 1st track meet

by | Oct 12, 2015

Information for the first track meeting this Sunday 18th October.

All held at Johnston park Feilding (out the back of the Feilding Yellow’s club rooms and around the rugby field).

Road bikes on track Starts 1:30pm, arrive about 1pm for registration for season warm up.

Bring- Bike (Road, MTB, BMX etc.), helmet, sneakers or cycling shoes, comfortable riding attire including something warm, gloves if you have them and a gold coin.

At this first meeting we ask you to write down your contact details, sign the wavier form and donate a gold coin to go towards spot prizes at the end of the season.

Track racing – Starts 3:00pm, we suggest you arrive at least 30mins before for this first meet for registration and warm up.

Bring- Track bike (bike safety info here), helmet, cycling shoes with not worn cleats, gloves, cycling clothes including something warm, and cash for entry.

Cost- $15.00 cash for whole track season (or $10.00 before Christmas and $10.00 after), we encourage you to pay the $15.00 on the first track meet as it is cheaper for you and a lot easier for us.

 

At registration you will give your contact information, sign the wavier form, receive your number and pay for the season. Before you ride you must sign the wavier form, pay and receive your number.

You will be responsible for looking after your number for the season and bringing it to each meet, if you don’t have your number it is very hard to record results, therefore No number = no result for that night.

For the first meeting we will not post a programme, and it will be posted on the day when we know numbers and what grades we need to offer. We do know that for this first meet we have many new riders, our two Junior World Champions Michaela and Campbell and maybe some newly crowned Oceania Champions calling in, so it is a track meet that you don’t want to miss!

Points trophies- Each race of the season has points up for grabs, with trophies for the winner of each age group at the end of the season.

Results- Will be posted here and updated each week, within a few days of racing.

Volunteers- We need to establish a list for the start of the season, even if you helped out last season please email Kate to confirm your availability for this season. More information on volunteers here.

Season programme here.

Orientation Day

We had a great turn out, with about 25 riders over the two days. Thanks to Ian Gray, Gemma Payne and Mike Simpson for helping out. This year we have hired out majority of the track bikes and are excited to have so many new riders. Welcome to our new riders, and to our returning riders please keep an eye out for the new riders and help them where needed.

We are very excited for the first track meet, and are looking forward to seeing new and old faces. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to flick me an email, k8.stewart@hotmail.com.
