Olympic Gold Medalist Takes on Top Cyclists

By Dynamo Events

The Dynamo Events Team Championship kicks of this weekend in Hamilton, after a very successful Series in 2015/16 the series is back again for 6 round based around the greater Waikato Region. The is 65 Teams entered for this series across 6 Categories.

"We are blown away with the reaction agin this year” says Stephen Cox of Dynamo Events, “the categories filled so quickly and it's been the talk of the all the bunches. I think we are just as excited looking forward to the racing as everyone is racing it!"

Aiming to provide a fun, safe and friendly racing environment for all abilities, the series format has been designed to give the chance not only for the Elite teams to go head to head but also for clubs, shops and friends to form teams and race at a competitive level.

Hamish Bond will line up as part of the Dynamo Invitation Team on Sunday in race 1 (Hamilton) of the 6 race Dynamo Team Championships. Bond will have to contend with Regan Gough who was the winner of the Te Awamutu Open last weekend & Nick Kergozou both part of the Cycling NZ Team. There will also be some stiff opposition from the very performed James Oram (Team Skoda), Olympic MTB rider Sam Gaze (Spoken Cycles) , current Junior world champion Jared Gray (Ricoh).

The overall winner of the series last year Michael Torckler (Blindz Direct) will still be a threat to them all and again looks a likely overall winner, due to his consistent riding and the solid Team backing.

The race will be over 107km will start and finish at the Hamilton Car Club and is generally flat train around, Tauhei, Te Hoe, Orini. The shorter distance should suit Bond as it was only towards the end of the 156km TA race that he lost contact with the winner. The race will form part of Bonds build up to the Tour of Southland , which starts at the end of the month.

Race Director Stephen Cox said he was delighted with the response to the series now in its second year. There will be over 360 riders competing on Sunday across the 6 various categories.

The 6 race series has races spread over the next 6 months around the Waikato area with round 3 and the Final both to be held in Tokoroa. The series was brought to life last year with generous sponsorship from the South Waikato District Council.
