Junior Worlds

Kate Smith with her NZ Teammates Michaela Drummond, Nicole Shields and Emily Shearman won the Silver Medal behind the Italians and ahead of the French Team. A phenomenal effort for Kate who started riding track just a year ago!

Crazy old July

A huge July and it's only half over.

So this happened....

19 year old Olivia Podmore selected for Rio Olympics. I coached her for the last 5 years and her incredible determination and passion for life has seen her go from this...

To this...

To this...

To the highest sporting stage in the World!!!

Kate Smith has arrived in Aigle, Switzerland and on Wednesday lines up in the New Zealand Women's Teams Pursuit at Junior Worlds. 

Last weekend Mike Pero Speedway hosted the South Island Junior Schools Cycling Championships. As always the crew were fired up to do themselves and their schools proud and they didn't disappoint. Six Gold Medals and all won individual medals!
Liam won the U17 Boys Time Trial!

Erin won the U15 Girls Road Race!

Britney won the U17 Girls Road Race!

Olivia Reiber won the U19 Girls Road Race. 3rd Olivia I have coached to this title (Wieblitz and Podmore are the others). 

So proud of the whole crew you are all AWESOME!!!
