So before talking about racing, we need to highlight just how short the volunteer list is this year. We like to think this is the best volunteer led racing going around and there is a long tradition of this - it's better cycling and better community. This only works when a lot of people contribute their talents to the events.
Last year, 550 individuals (410 Combine club members) raced at Combine events. We need around 150 vols to run the season. Right now we have about half as many people as required to run the rest of the season. Without more vols, racing will be at risk.
Time to come out of the woodwork. Nominate your partner, parents or yourself to come out for a day and make sure these events can continue.
We are back at South Gisbourne this week doing normal distances for the Hawthorn Trophy Race. This is the first of the Women's Series races for 2017 with separate grades for women's A, B and C.
