NZ Club Road Nationals
9 Jul, 2008

Preperations for the New Zealand Club road nationals are heating up and entry enquiries are starting to flood in for the popular championships contested by the hardcore of the home based roadies.  Below is all you need to know to prepare for your west coast odyssey.

Note Entries will only be accepted via your Club Secretary.

Only riders with a full National Licence can enter, so upgrade. For more information about licences contact Emma Wensing at BikeNZ:

Entry forms will be out in early August and will have a closing date of Thursday 25 September – 4 weeks before the event. Entries should arrive by that date at the following address: Wanganui Cycling Club, PO Box 618, Wanganui. Please do not leave it until the last day to post your entry. Put them in the mail by 21 September.
Entry fees are $20 per event for all grades.
If Masters entries do not warrant holding separate races, then some age groups may be combined and medals will be awarded for each age group. If there are not 8 entries in an age category, then that category will have a combined race with another category, but medals will be awarded for each category within that race.  All managers meetings will be held at Cycling Wanganui Clubrooms, Cooks Street, Wanganui (at the velodrome).

For those people looking for assistance with accommodation, please check out the following Wanganui websites. Don’t leave booking accommodation too late, as there could be other events on over Labour weekend.

TT & Road Race
The out and back Time Trial course begins on Thursday 23rd Oct, north of the city on River Road leading to Raetihi. The Road Races begin on the Friday around a 9km circuit on Montgomery Road, Great North Road & Francis Road. Saturday and Sunday racing will use much of the Montgomery circuit but incorporate the longer KaiIwi circuit, which has several hill climbs, as well. Races will commence at 9.00am  each day. See the maps on Newsletter #1 on the BikeNZ website under Road Nationals.  Wanganui Cycling Club will be running the River City Grand Prix Cycling Race on Saturday 6 September 2008 on the National Championships course for those riders wishing to ride the course as a precursor to the Nationals.
