Southland businesses will be operating at speed this Sunday as Cycling Southland’s Harrex Group-sponsored Corporate Pursuit is held for the sixth time. After last weekend’s Grading Time Trial the capacity field of 34 teams has been split into two divisions as each six-person squad lines up to battle each other over a full day of racing.
Cycling Southland held its Annual General Meeting this week. It provided a rare opportunity to pause and reflect on the last 15 months’ work. Each and every week I am continually blown away by the support this organization receives from such a passionate group of people and each week I am captivated by the opportunity which exists for the sport and for Cycling Southland.
Cycling Southland’s Harrex Group-sponsored Corporate Pursuit kicked off today at the ILT Velodrome with the annual Grading Time Trial. A capacity field of 34 four-person teams battled the clock and chilly temperatures to confirm seeding for next Sunday’s Finals Day.
Thanks to those who took time to come along last night to our Annual General Meeting and to those who weren’t able to make it through apologies/proxies. You can find links to our Overview and the numbers in our Annual Accounts here, along with my CEO report.
Cycling Southland’s Harrex Group Corporate Pursuit is to be held over the next two weekends. Last year’s winning team was YMCA Education. They were anchored to their victory by Karl Watson who today tells us why competing in the event last year was truly life-changing.
Organisers of the Distinction Hotels Milford Mountain Classic Cycle Race are confident ‘take-two’ of the event will be a success, as they look to cement a place for it on New Zealand’s road cycling calendar.
Come along to our final ladies night on Tuesday 12th July, learn how to change a tyre whilst out riding, and also have a coached session on track riding at NZ's only indoor velodrome, The ILT Velodrome.
Kia ora guys! Well, I am thrilled to be able to introduce myself here and let you all know how excited I am to be joining the team at Cycling Southland. I have been overwhelmed with the warm welcome and encouragement I have received from everyone - a true Southland embrace! Thank you!
