Happy New Year everyone from us all at the office,
Hope you have had a fantastic break and if you’re still having a holiday, good on you, enjoy it while you can.
A big welcome to our new GM Nic Wills, who started yesterday. She is having a handover with Mark over the next few days and is being brought up to speed on the various aspects of the organisation.
ILT New Year Carnival
We are all back into it with gusto as we plan for this weekend’s ILT New Year Track Carnival.
Sessions start from 6pm on Friday night and 1.30pm Saturday.
Spectator entry is $5 adults and kids free so make sure you head along and support everyone.
Ascot Park Hotel Criterium
Due to lack of entries this has unfortunately been called off and we plan to reschedule it for later in the year.
Road Racing and Wednesday Worlds
Zookeepers Wednesday Worlds will restart from next Wednesday 23 January. 6pm registration for 6.30pm racing. Entry $10 or $5 for licenced racers.
Road racing will recommence from Saturday 26 with a Mass Start on the Makarewa-Lochiel loop, starting from the old Makarewa Works at 1.30pm
Our Elite and Under 19 riders along with their management and support team will be competing in Cambridge from 7 to 10 February so training and final planning is full steam ahead. Good luck everyone with the final preparation.
Age Group Track Nationals will be held the following month on the same dates. Ensure you are organised for skinsuits and red team shirts – we have the options of a polo (with collar), t-shirt and singlets. Order through me urgently if you require one as I need to get these processed for you. Costs will be confirmed depending on numbers etc.
All squads and regular sessions will resume from next week with the Stadium resuming full open hours.
We will advise when Adult Racing and Track Start restart once confirmed.
Rockets (the coached junior rider skill and development session) will be held today from 4-5pm for those who are keen.
