The GIB Te Awamutu Junior Tour 2017
The Future Starts Here
2017 will see the 18th year of the GIB Te Awamutu Junior Tour. It was started by the Te Awamutu Sports Cycling Club in 2000 as a way of introducing multi-stage racing for our U15 and U17 riders. In that year there were 50 entries from around the North Island, of those only 6 were girls.
2001 saw the introduction of U15 and U17 girl’s categories along with an U19 men’s grade. Categories for U19 Women were included in 2002 and women in 2004 as the event grew in popularity. Last year saw 250+ entries across the grades with riders from all over New Zealand.
Previous winners who have gone on to make a name for themselves in cycling are Tim Gudsell, Peter Latham, Rushlee Buchanan, Westley Gough, Lauren Koedyk and James Northey; and Terenzo Bozzone in triathlons.
Dynamo Events will now be organising the junior cycling tour in conjunction with the Te Awamutu Sports Cycling Club.
