Wellington is seeking motivated road, cross and mountain bikers to join the track team heading to National Championships next year, some of the best run events on the calendar and a brilliant experience every cyclist should put on their bucket list.
Elite and under 19 championships are at the beginning of February and the Age Group Nationals, for juniors and masters are in mid March.
Both are to be held on the super fast, indoor wooden Avantidrome and for both, Wellington is looking to send its biggest ever teams.
This is a great chance to represent your region on the national stage and PNP is keen to make the introduction of track into your cycling regime as easy as possible.
“It’s not hard to take up track if you haven’t done it before,” said Jamie Hodgkinson, Wellington National Team Coordinator. “We will have mid week training sessions that would be easy to mix into your current programme and have bikes to borrow to get you going.”
“There are events where bunch skills aren’t required, and the Wellington support team is now well drilled with mechanics and handlers to assist the riders.”
It's not hard to adapt training and racing programmes to be in shape for track nationals.
"For example," says Jamie, “if you’re doing something like the North Island Teams Series, that will give you the perfect base to move onto the track around Christmas and smash the individual pursuit at Nationals.”
