17/9/10 - On the Edge triumphed in Cycling Southland's first ever Starter Teams Race Night on Friday night at the ILT Velodrome.
Led by Dion Cameron (far left) and Emma Gibb (front), two of the victorious YMCA team from the Harrex Group Corporate Pursuit earlier in the year the team sponsored by Edge Roofing and Spouting triumphed over the ILT/Heineken foursome by a solitary point to lift the trophy after an entertaining and action-packed two hour racing programme.
By the end of it our 40 newbie racers has been put through their paces with Scratch, Points and Elimination races along with an Italian Pursuit and Flying lap.
This new initiative was designed to provide individual racing for some of our beginner Club riders whilst maintaining the team aspect so successful throughout the annual Corporate Pursuit. It was good fun and a large vote of thanks goes to all of the Starter riders, team sponsors and officials who got us underway for an event we are sure to build on for the future.
