Hello everyone and welcome to the week that is the eve of Age Group Track Nationals – very exciting and with more than 220 riders it is going to be an epic week as Team Southland battle to retain the Points Shield for the record 9th year!
We stand in a good place heading in with a 17 point advantage so in the final week of lead-in we wish all our rider reps good health, focus and a balance of rest and training for the 9-13 March event.
Remember to spread the word to get Southland down to the track to cheer our team on and don’t be shy in sticking your hand up if you can and want to be involved in helping make this a fantastic event – Remember you will need a blue volunteer shirt so swing by the office to sort one if you haven’t got it already. Check out ticket details and other information as it is loaded online – the riders entry list is imminent.
