Good soggy Tuesday to you all and hope everyone is recovering well after an outstanding Club Road Nationals in Alexandra.
A tremendous effort by everyone who ventured up there and raced – while some found conditions or circumstances trying, the overall results were still pretty darned epic!

Please ensure you register your kids with me as there were some huge numbers last week and it was not known that many would be attending. View details here
Team entries are starting to roll in nicely, so if you are planning on entering make sure you get your entries in online – if you are still awaiting confirmation of all your riders you can still just put ‘tbc’ in the name space and provide further details when you have finalised.
Key dates are:
6 May: Entries Close – midday
11 May: Team Briefing - 7-9pm
1 July: Corporate Pursuit Time Trials - 6pm start

Also if anyone wishes to help out – either as a volunteer at the events or as a coach for one of the teams – please let me know. All hands on deck are greatly appreciated.
We also need some additional male riders if anyone is keen to help out and race the event – you must be 18 and over and have not represented Southland at Track Nationals in recent years.
