Well it was certainly another action-packed weekend with the ILT New Year Cycling Series with the two-night track Carnival, Gore to Invercargill Classic and Ascot Park Hotel Criteriums bring riders from afar to the south. Thank you very much to all the officials and volunteers who again helped to make these happen and congrats to everyone who competed – there was some exciting racing and great results.

Meanwhile, some great World Cup experience has been gained in Cali, Columbia over recent days as our very own Nick Kergozou, Kirstie James, Natasha Hansen and Cam Karwowski competed in the NZ ranks. It was a case of oh so close for both Tarsh and Cam but great efforts by all none-the-less!! Well done everyone and good luck for your next adventures.
