Greetings everyone for another week!
And what a week it is turning into as our most recent intake into the fold of international representation – Emily Paterson and Conor Shearing – left for their final lead-in training in the Cycling NZ U19 camp in Cambridge before heading to Germany for the Junior Worlds Track Championships from 14 to 18 August. All the very best to you both – we wish you all the luck in the world and hope you have a magnificent time. We also hope your justifiably proud families travelling to support you have a fabulous time too.
