Upcoming Events

Here is the roster for the next few weeks – I have posted it as there is some great racing coming up. You will see that we are not racing on the 26 March in support of the Western Tiers Challenge and I encourage everyone to go for a ride that day and support the charity. Our first Symonds Crit is then on the 2nd April and the race at Bishopsbourne will be sponsored by Team Daltini. A little break for easter and the second Feature Race of the year, Quamby Classic.

The NVCC Committee for 2017

Hi members,

For those who were unable to make the annual general meeting for 2017 I would like to inform you as to the committee members for 2017.  Make up of the committee is

  • Luke Moore – President
  • Ricky Allen – Vice President
  • Helen Finn – Secretary
  • Phil Stevenson – Treasure
  • Pat Coe – committee
  • James Proverbs – committee

I would like to thank Lynne Woodfall and Darren Cook for their commitment to the club, your work on the committee and your support for me.  I am pleased to say that Lynne will continue working on the desk on race day.

James Proverbs has agreed to take over the production of the race rosters and so you can direct your enquiries that way but I ask that you be patient as he learns the role.

2016 saw excellent numbers throughout the year and 2017 seems to be continuing the trend with excellent numbers at the normal races and a superb field at Fingal.

Luke

2017 Fingal 50

The Northern Vets Fingal 50 classic was run in near perfect conditions as part of the annual Fingal Festival,  with just on 57 starters. The flat, fast course saw the scratch bunch average 43kph. However, it was a day for the mid markers, the C and D groups combining at 35 km. Strong work from Dale Hainsworth and the two Kerry’s; Newman and Leonard helped keep this group away. Alex Robinson went early and strongly in the sprint, holding off Ty Farrow and Phil Stevenson for a great win.
Top 10 finishers:
1) Alex Robinson
2) Ty Farrow
3) Phil Stevenson
4) Geoff Rollins
5) Gary Baker
6) Nick Lawrence
7) James Proverbs
8) Nick Wilson
9) Dean Mason
10)John Frankling
Fastest time: Steven Brown
Thanks to all the volunteers who helped put on a great race
