Master’s Wanganui Velodrome Training

by | Oct 12, 2012

Would you like to ride the NZ Master’s Games track events, but are unsure about the Wanganui Velodrome?

Well good news, BikeManawatu Men and Women have an exclusive booking on Saturday, 15-Dec-2012, 10.30am–12.30pm for training, charge $10 for track hire.

The NZ Masters Games is the perfect competitive event if you are new to the track as two of the four track events are timed individual events, the 500m Time Trial and 2000m Pursuit, so it’s just you on the track.

Race categories start from 35 years in 5 years group. 

In the past several age categories have had no or low entries when this event was held in Wanganui so your chance to get amongst the medals!

Also Wanganui Coach, Lyle Hastie, is happy for any masters cyclist’s to come along to his Friday night session’s where he can offer guidance if needed for anyone new to the Wanganui velodrome. This will start in November.  If you intend to come, you do need to confirm this with him prior (phone 06 344 6443). There is a small track hire charge, but Lyle said no charge for his time.

Lyle Wanganui Master’s will also be running a “Mock Carnival” in January replicating all the events at the Masters Games, and BikeManawatu masters are welcome to attend. Dates TBC.
