The Grassroots Trust Team Championship 2017-18 – Race 1 – Tamahere, Hamilton
Is your Team up to it?
This year we start the series of with a familiar course from Tamahere, Hamilton. The circuit out around the Te Miro / Waterworks/ Scotsmans Valley region is one that offers a bit of everything, some nice falt roads, with a few hills in the middle part to spice things up a little. The September / October time frame also generally produces a bit of wind in the region, so expect some windy sections.
There is many opportunities for a break away group to take the race apart and leave the peleton to do some real chasing.
The goal of the series is to provide a competitive team’s racing series where you compete in a grade that suits your ability – not your age, have fun with your team mates and race in a safe and friendly environment.
A six round Team based series with different grades to suit all levels, the series offers a challenge to all competitive cyclists. Whether you’re an elite rider, up and coming junior, veteran competitor or just a keen weekend warrior there is a grade for you. The Team Championship gives you the opportunity to create a team with work mates, friends, other club riders or whoever else you may want to include.
The generous support of the South Waikato District Council has guaranteed Tokoroa 2 races in the series.
