Race Update 4 - Weather Forecast

The current weather Met Service forecast for Saturday for both Thames and Whitanga is,

“Cloud increasing, Showers developing, Northerlies”

Consider your clothing for the event and consider your tyre pressure. As for traction in wet conditions decreasing tyre pressure does indeed help.

Just a reminder that the registrations are at the following locations;

 

We wish you all a safe trip to the Coromandel and look forward to seeing you at registration and on the start line.
