Adult racing programme
We're introducing a coached six-session adult racing training programme for those looking to take the next step. Running on Monday nights from 5.45pm from August 20, the hour-long sessions will teach basic track racing skills and provide development for novice riders keen to start racing but unsure where to begin.
Run by Cycling New Zealand-qualified coach Lance Spencer, participants will develop track confidence, learn to ride in bunches, build strength and endurance, and learn the basics of various types of racing.
Contact the office to register - spaces are limited. You will need to have completed Track Start and be a confident rider on the track.
