Good morning to you all!

It’s an early yarn today to remind all potential Corporate Pursuit Business teams to get your entries in today if you don’t want to miss out on going into the Early Bird draw to win your entry fee back!

If you have not yet confirmed your team members you can still fill out the form online and just put a ‘tbc’ beside rider names and contact details as this is too good an opportunity to be missed. Jump in here and register online now and you can check out other details and key dates there as well. We are again looking forward to some mighty fine competition on the boards again this year so don’t miss out.

Free Track Session for Corporate Pursuiters
A reminder that there will be another fully coached free track session for those wanting to take part this year. This is for beginners or a refresher for those who have ridden before and will be held this Thursday 14 April from 6-8pm so head along to give the track a whirl.

Road Racing
Some great results last weekend for the Southland Road Champs leading into the Club Road Nationals in Alex next week. Read the report here and check out the results here

This Saturday is the last hit out before the Road Nationals with a double stage race from Riverton to Tuatapere and back – the morning race is 9.30am sign on for a 10am start and the afternoon stage will start an hour after the last morning riders are in. Junior Division 2 and 3 grades also have an afternoon race option. If anyone can lend a hand marshalling please let Danielle know and you can check out the details and register online

Club Road Nationals
The Southland road jerseys will be arriving in the office imminently so ensure you pick one up before heading away next week.

Alan Strong has kindly offered to act as the Southland manager for this event and, while he is riding the road race, he will be using the Cycling Southland Facebook page to put out any communications before and during the event so keep any eye on our site. If anyone needs to contact Alan, his cell is 027 378 7877.

The 2016 Club Road Nationals are being held in Alexandra 21-24 April. Central Otago-Wakatipu Cycling are still short of one marshal on the Fri/Sat/Sun. If you can help us on any one of these days, please contact the Queenstown Club Captain, Steve Brough 03 441 6008 or

School Holiday Programme
We will again be holding a school holiday track programme on Wednesday 20 and 27 April from 10am to 11am and 11am to midday. $6 per child per session or concession card. Please let me know if you are keen to book in so we can keep an eye on numbers and what day/s time/s

Finally in this short, sharp instalment, a huge congratulations to our ace sprinters Eddie and Tarsh on being half of the first four Cycling NZ Rio squad to be named last week. We cannot wait to see who the gun sprinters are joined by so good luck to all our crew – we are right behind you all! Read more here
