Thursday Points Series
Only five weeks left until the end of the 2014-15 season with the last race to be held on Thursday 2nd of April. This final race will have a different format and will not count towards the points series.
The annual DB Cup race is likely to be held on the penultimate Thursday (26th of March) with prize money awarded to the top 10 place getters. Please note this race is for paid up Leeston Club members so any non-members are welcome to ride but will be started behind the scratch bunch. Again this race will not count towards the points series.
That leaves just three races left in the points series for this season. Numbers have been down in the past few weeks so get out there and help finish off the season with some good competitive racing.
It's getting gloomy on the ride home now so please remember to bring your lights, be seen and be safe.
Overview (please note that this information may change at any time and is meant as a guide only)
The Leeston Cycle Club encourages a family friendly environment with the emphasis being on having fun, making it enjoyable for all those involved and participating to the best of your ability.
Thursday evening is the only day of the week events are held other than the Leeston Classic. These races are held over the period of Daylight Saving.
No prize money is on offer for our normal Thursday night rides with the exception of the "DB Cup" which is raced for on the final night of the season. The current holder of the DB Cup is Robert McIntyre.
The races are held over a 16km open road circuit, starting at The Leeston Rugby Football Club carpark and finishing on Lake Road in Leeston (the start and finish lines are approximately 1km apart). The 2014/15 season began on 2nd October 2014 and will end on 2 April 2015. Cost to enter each race is just $2.
Start Times: The final entry time for Juniors is 5.50pm with a start time of 6pm and for the seniors 6.20pm with a start time of 6.30pm.
Membership Fees: $5 for juniors & $15 for seniors. Prospective members must pay their subscription before they ride their second race. In addition to the sub, for the 2011/12 season and beyond members must hold a Bike New Zealand Licence.
Feel free to have a ride and enjoy the race but if you like it and want to continue then you know the story: no subscription or licence, no race.
