Junior Rider Development
Our junior section is organised by local mum legend Nardia Turner and supported by ex international racing legend Craig Oliver. Local Commonwealth Games rider Ben Oliver has been know to lend a hand too! The junior section is mainly based on getting kids together and ride once a month on a social level. We like to go to different locations when possible. We have taken our junior riders to Mt Hutt, Halwsell Quarry, Rakahuri and of course Ashley Forest.
Our juniors can be a competitive bunch, we like to encourage participation with new events like cycle cross, mountain bike racing, schools racing, night racing individual and team event. We try and get feedback from our riders on where they would like to see future rides.
We also encourage our senior riders to help with skills sessions we have; this is often on our social rides and helps our junior riders confidence to tackle more demanding terrain. Frankly some of the juniors can show the older riders a thing or to!
Parents we need your help to join in on our rides. We aren't baby sitters. If you have skills to help us develop the junior section or just want to be involved, please contact us.
