DATE: Saturday 5th to Monday 7th February 2005
VENUE: Stage 1: Wembley Park, Wilkie Street, Wanganui East.

Sign on – 12:30 pm
Start – 2:30 pm


The 2005 Masters Games 3 day tour is again organized and conducted by members and friends of the Wanganui Cycling Club.

The tour is based around the Wanganui region on a relatively challenging course Comprising 5 stages totaling 290km for age groups up to 49 yrs and 270km for 50 plus.

A detailed tour manual will be provided when you register at the Masters Games Village. It will describe all aspects of the tour route, start times, how to get to the start, daily presentation locations, support vehicles, race officials etc. It is very important that you carefully read the detailed booklet, pay attention at pre-stage briefings and daily presentation sessions that will be held at 6.00pm each day of the tour.

Those of you who competed in the Tour in 2001 and 2003 will be familiar with the courses, for 2005 the Hunterville stages will be on the second day instead of the third as previously. Each of the tour stages includes at least one good climb – but don’t let that scare you off! In past years officials have allowed slower riders (based on how they handle the early stages) to start in a group ahead of the more serious racers and this practice will continue, we want you all to complete and enjoy the Tour.


Will be presented to the first 3 male and first 3 female place getters on overall GC and in each age group at the end of the tour.
In addition, the overall leading male and female riders will wear yellow Tour Leaders Jerseys throughout the tour. These will be awarded to the overall male & female winners.
