Hi everyone and this continual torrid weather must be the sign that there’s another road tour imminent!
Preparation is in full swing for the 1-7 November hit out on Southland roads and while the team numbers may be slightly down, the quality field will again more than make up for that. Check out the latest tour update here

Peter Grandiek World Record
Our mega master of the track and current World Record holder Peter Grandiek would very much like to say a special thank you to all the officials and supporters who helped him achieve his goal during the Oceania Track Champs earlier in the month. It was very exciting and inspirational to witness Peter’s efforts and help cheer him on for every lap. Read the full story here

Finally a reminder that our office phone number has changed to 219 9325 and the old number has now been disconnected, it is unfortunately still incorrectly listed in the phone book white pages.
Also a reminder that the track and premises will be closed all of next Monday for the Labour Day public holiday – so a day off the boards for everyone.
Take care out there and roll on with the sunshine!
