2012-2013 Thursday Night races – coming soon

Just a quick update so everyone knows whats happening

Currently we are awaiting council approval for this years traffic management plan. We update the plan every year  – to allow us to race legally on the roads.

At this point ( Nov 1 ) we are in a queue with the council officer in charge of Rodney district, and as soon as we get sign off that this has been rubber stamped, racing is on.

This year there will be a few changes- a new course! – we’re running a slightly longer course to accommodate the expected riders

a new timing system! ( we need about 4 volunteers to learn to run the system – please email: road@deptofcycling.com  if you’d like to volunteer please)

As you know  – with all good things there’s usually a wait  -currently we are anticipating mid – late November before we start, but as things progress we’ll update here – so watch this space.

In the interim, to keep those legs pumping, we’re looking to hold the inaugural DOC Criterium series at Trusts Stadium. Updates for this will be coming in the next few days -so again –
