Summer Series Event Two – Report

The weather gods turned it on for Event 2 of the Pak'nSave PNP Summer Road Series, the ‘Epic’ Martinborough-Ngawi Classic. Rolling out from the Village Café in Martinborough the 125 riders were greeted with bright blue skies, calm conditions and majestic scenery. The Onslow Tarbabies were well represented across both events looking to consolidate their lead in the team’s event competition. Glenn Owen, Chief Onslow Tarbabies Motivator, said the short course option and team event competition was perfect to encourage those who are a bit tentative about riding in a mass participation event.

Summer Series Event One – Report

A calm overcast Wairarapa day greeted riders for event one of the PNP Pak’nSave Summer Road Series, the Ocean Beach Challenge. Rain threatened but never quite arrived. The turnout was fantastic with almost 100 riders participating, 74 in the 82km Grand Fondo and 23 in the 60km Medio Fondo. The calm muggy conditions foretold a fast race for the Grand Fondo. This was the case with several attempts to establish a break on the outward leg being unsuccessful. The peloton arrived at the turnaround intact. The small pinch climb just before the turn split the pack and some hard chasing was required by many to get back on. The first decisive break of the day followed soon after with Dave Rowlands of

The story behind the starting gate - an epic four year journey

It took four years of graft, intensive research and dozens of tests, but in January 2018 Max Uivel finally completed building his project of passion: a fully functional starting gate. For anyone who has ridden a timed event in a National Championships, waiting in the gate as the pips count down before you start your effort, is a nerve-wracking experience. Max’s machine will help all Wellington’s riders prepare for the experience, pips and all. Why did you decide to build a starting gate? I first decided to build a velodrome starting gate when Lee Evans and I got serious about putting together a Team Sprint for the 2014 Nationals. I dedicated myself to training as a start-man (first lap) and

Summer Series starts THIS WEEKEND!

There are only THREE MORE SLEEPS until this year's PNP Road Summer Series gets underway. The Sub-committee have created a great line-up of courses, with two distances at each event to choose from.
