Record Entries for Corporate Pursuit
28 Apr, 2010

Record entries have resulted in 33 teams being confirmed in Harrex Group Corporate Pursuit cycling event being held in Invercargill in late June.

 

In previous years a maximum of 32 teams could enter the event but organisers Cycling Southland have increased the field by one to allow for the extra interest.

 

“We are thrilled to have received a full complement of entries for this unique event,” spokesperson for Cycling Southland Julian Ineson said.

 

“It again emphasizes the calibre of the event and its popularity amongst the Southland business community.”

 

There are a large number of businesses who are returning after racing in previous years with some businesses, including the New Zealand Fire Brigade and Fonterra, who have entered more than one team.

 

Nineteen businesses entered are returning for at least their second attempt and there are a large number of businesses who have competed in all three previous editions of the event, including Division One Champion YMCA, Konica Minolta, Preston Russell Law and the HW Richardson Group.

 

New entries include the Southland Times, Invercargill Licensing Trust, SEC Engineering and South Port.

 

“The town is already buzzing about the potential battles on the velodrome.” Ineson said. 

 

“Plenty of emails and phone calls are going on as people engage in friendly banter leading into the opening weeks of their training.”

 

“There is no other corporate track cycling event of this size in the world.  The continual growth in popularity of this event each year is fantastic to see.”

 

The event starts with a grading time trial on Friday 18 June and then finals are on Sunday 27 June.

 

The Corporate Pursuit involves teams of four riders in an Italian-style pursuit, with one rider dropping off after each lap. The team with the fastest time over the four laps is the winner.
