Hi team,
Well judging by the speed we’re going in the office the SBS Bank Tour of Southland must kick off again this Sunday – what a ride it’s going to be again this year with some fantastic names fronting up to contest the titles that are up for grabs again. The SKY broadcast schedule is now out so print it off and pin it on your fridge because the stage packages are always a great watch to keep up to date with all the information.

This Thursday 29 October will be the briefing meeting for all volunteers in the Ulmer Lounge, at 7pm. Good luck to everyone involved and don’t forget to keep an eye out on the Facebook page and website for the regular daily updates – but make sure you head out and catch some of the action first hand – it’s too good not to miss!

We are still looking for someone to help with the traffic management services during the week of the tour – vehicle and petrol supplied – the bonus of this role is that you will get to see all the starts and finishes during the week-long event. If anyone is at all able and keen to lend a hand – let us know we would be extremely grateful! 

Saturday Racing
This Saturday is the Versatile Homes & Buildings Makarewa-Winton-Oporo-Makarewa 53km graded race. Register online here now Also don’t forget it is at the earlier time of 10.30am, so head along to the old freezing works for a 10am sign on.

Also don’t forget Cycle Surgery-Zookeepers Café Wednesday Worlds 6pm sign on for 6.30pm race start at Rimu School. $5 rider fee. 

Baxter & Neilson Junior Racing
This Saturday (note the change of day and the earlier start time of 5pm) is round 6 of the Baxter & Neilson Junior Race series. Make sure you all head along and take a plate for supper as well. 

Great Southern Cycle Challenge
It was another great day out –albeit a bit breezy - for the entrants in this year’s Great Southern Cycle Challenge held on 17 October. For the full results click here

So it’s seriously short and sweet from me this week as there is much to do in this crazy busy week.
Be good and go everyone on the SBS Bank Tour of Southland!!!
