2014 Nationals – Tauranga wrap-up

Hopefully everyone has made it home safe and sound. Just a quick e-mail to say thanks heaps to everyone for their help and patience over the weekend. It was pretty testing at times but we got there in the end. Some achieved what they were after and some didn’t,  but everyone rode their hearts out!!!! For those that didn’t do as well as they had hoped, keep training hard and it will happen!


My apologies for not fully explaining the transfer rule into the 1/8 , 1/4 and semi-finals; this was briefly talked about at the team managers meeting on Saturday but I didn’t realise how many people it would affect. I think the transfer rule used will start to become pretty common from now on at BMXNZ events so next time I’ll be a little more onto it.

Special thanks to Darryll and Anne-Marie for communicating all the last minute changes to everyone via text and facebook, Mel for picking up and distributing the registration packs and Amy for volunteering to be my sidekick. Without help from you all it would have been a pretty stressful weekend!
