Kapiti Cycling Club

Winter Series Sponsored by:Tineli Logo Black

This weekend, 5 of our youngest club members will be heading up to Cambridge for the Skoda North Island School Road Championships.  Liam Parkes, Oscar Goodwin, Millie Donald, Euan Mason and James De Hair will be competing for their respective schools in this prestigious event which will feature much of the top cycling talent in the country and is a proven stepping stone into the international ranks and our past and present Olympians.

 The event, which will host over 500 competitors, is based around Karapiro, and our riders will be competing in a road race on Saturday followed by a criterium around the Lake Karapiro domain on Sunday.  The larger school teams also have a team time trial on Saturday morning.  The races and results are likely to be dominated by the powerhouse schools of Auckland and Cambridge, but our riders should be able to get stuck in and look to achieve their own personal goals.  Most importantly for schools racing, the event should be a great weekend away gaining experience and having fun.
 
Millie Donald will be hanging around Cambridge for the North Island and National Schools Track Championships over the following two days, competing in four events in an omnium format (each event contributing points to an overall score).  This event always proves a challenge with no opportunity to train specifically for the event for riders based away from Cambridge, so the emphasis on this one again is about having fun, gaining experience and catching up with friends.
 
We wish the best of luck to all of our riders in Cambridge this weekend!
