Well this is a sneaky update in between the full on week that has been NZ and South Island Schools Track Nationals and the ILT Junior Track Carnival, and what is obviously looming next week with the Oceania Track Championships starting on Wednesday. Fantastic riding and results from all our juniors involved earlier in the week and you can view the full results www.schoolscycling.nz
There were some mighty fine individual and team resusults and a lovely write up on Emily Paterson leading into the Oceania Track Champs

New Board Member – From the President Reece McDonald
After not sending this out last week I am welcoming David McCormick on to the board replacing the departing Brad Harris, who is relocating to Dunedin.
Dave is in the roading department within the City Council, Tour rider for this year’s tour and no doubt will be handy to have around with his cycling experience.
See you at the next meeting or during the many events that Nic and the team are putting on!
Thanks to you and your team Nic!
Calling all hi-vis vests, radios, flags……any cycling equipment that might be rolling around in your car - we need these to be back into the office ASAP for us to deliver the key events that are coming up.
So that is it from the office for this week and next week and we look forward to catching you up at the track during Oceanias next week.
