Hi for another week everyone and hope you are all keeping busy and well as the days grow shorter.

Architecture Unlimited Track Challenge
This Thursday 9th May, is the team debriefing and track booking get-together for the team training freebies that all teams get as part of their entry fee. Send along your coach/managers to represent your teams at 7pm sharp in the Champions Lounge.

There are also easier and more economical ways to regularly get the practise in on the boards with concession cards and session options once skilled enough. View more here
The team time trial will be held on Friday 21 June from 6pm with the main race day on Sunday 30th June.

We are still after some team coaches if anyone is keen to lend a hand – juniors included – please let Glen know

The Old Omnium Fundraiser
Apologies for the typo last week – the entry fee is still $50. Enjoy the fun this weekend and well done on everyone who has entered to support Emily Paterson and Conor Shearing’s fundraising to go to Junior Worlds in Germany in August.

Under 19 Coach Assistant
We are after a coach to assist Sid with the Under 19 Squad going forward please. If anyone is keen to help or wants to discuss the role further, please contact Glen

National Track Series
Entries for the first round of the three-round national series are now open and you have to register online with Cycling New Zealand. The first round is being held here at the SIT Zero Fees Velodrome from 31 May to 2 June and is open to U17 through to U23 riders.

Check out all the details and register here

Skinsuits & Jersey Returns
I still have skinsuits outstanding from Track Nationals and there is a swag of road jerseys out on hire from the weekend too. Please ensure you get these washed and returned as soon as possible as I have a stock take to complete in 10 days time.

Your help is essential!

Equipment Amnesty
We are currently undertaking our annual stock take so require all lights, radios, vests etc that are owned by our organisation to be returned. Please get anything you have in cars, garages etc back to us – it would be greatly appreciated.

Demonstration Riders Wanted
On Thursday 18th July around tea time, we are after riders keen to help out with a 45 minute demonstration, including short races and a wheel race. Let me know if you have kids who are keen and we’ll confirm in more detail nearer the time,

Rolling Plains Mini Tour
The Rolling Plains Mini Tour will be held again on Sunday 2 June during Queen’s Birthday Weekend. Check out the details

Tour of Taranaki
This Tour is also being held over the long weekend if you are keen to head further afield for some racing. Check out more here

Finally, huge good luck to the 60 riders heading from Queenstown to Invercargill again on Friday for the annual Westpac Chopper Appeal ride. We have plenty of our own members riding this again this year and it is a very worthy cause so make sure you support it.

Also good luck to young Mitchel Fitzsimons who is heading to Australia this weekend with the Cycling New Zealand junior road team for the Tour of Canberra – race well mate!

Okey dokey it’s short and sweet this week,
So have a great one!
