2009 New Zealand Oceanic Trials Championship Team Applications
MNZ are calling for suitable applications to fill the team positions for the 2009 Oceanic Trials championships. This event is to be held in Nelson over the Easter weekend of 11th-12th April and will also comprise of Rounds 1 and 2 of the 2009 South Island Champs. The team requires three members and will be competing against three visiting Australian riders of the same grade.
We require: 1 Expert Grade rider
1 Junior 21years and under riding the A Grade
1 Master rider 35 years + also riding the A Grade line.
Unfortunately due to all funding going towards the travelling International team there will be no financial assistance available to NZ team members.
As a special event the organising committee have also secured the appearance of former World No 2 Takumi Narita from Japan who will be attending and also running trails schools in the days following the event. Also there are strong indications that some Scottish riders who currently live and compete in the USA will also be attending and a strong contingent of club riders from Sydney may be coming to experience some top NZ trials riding. With high levels of local and National media coverage for this event, it is shaping up to be one of NZs biggest events of the year and one not to be missed. Please send all applications to the Trials Commissioner and the closing date for applications will be the 31st Jan 2009.
