An awesome evening of racing took place on Friday 29 June 2012 at the first Baxter and Neilson event of year in the eight event series.
Thank you to Baxter and Neilson Plumbers for making this happen with your generous sponsorship and encouragement of junior cycling!
There were 31 riders with many new faces coming up from the ranks of Dale Tye and Matt Dodds Wheelers and Flyers groups. Good to see you all guys - your track skills are awesome!
Well done to the category winners:
U13 girls - Emily Paterson
U13 boys - Corbin Strong
U15 girls - Emma Cumming
U15 boys - Hamish Beadle
U17 girls - Laura Heywood
U17 boys - Nick Kergozou
And congratulations to everyone who took part - your performance both on and off the track was exemplary.
Thanks also to the parents and coaches that made the evening happen - without you this event could not take place and we encourage you all to learn new jobs on the track side. Good to see so many parents in the stands also cheering on the kids!!
The next event in the series is on Friday 20 July when the kids will race the other three events of the Olympic omnium. Watch the Cycling Southland website and Facebook for details nearer the time.
