Racing is on 12th November 2015

Looking towards Kumeu now the weather looks fantastic but there is supposed to be a front coming through and we have a chance of being rained on.

Be prepared and bring a jacket just in case but the racing is on!

Cheers.  Alan.

Thursday Race results 28.10.2015

Race results are up for the Individual Time Trial.

In this list you will see groups and workings.  Note that these groups may not be the same as last year.  Your grouping goes by time only.  Your time and speed dictates the group you will be in.

Please do not second guess the team at the registration desk, this wastes time and causes unnecessary stress. 

After the race if you feel you were in the wrong group you can email Catherine  to request a change.

Click here for Results page which will be updated weekly once results are collated.
