YMCA Takes Out Corporate Pursuit in Record Time
27 Jun, 2010

YMCA Education defended its Harrex Corporate Pursuit title breaking its own record in the event’s finals held in Invercargill today.

 

“It was amazing, a great feeling and an awesome team effort,” YMCA Education team leader Dion Cameron said. 

 

The YMCA team was dominate throughout the day pacing itself and building well breaking the one minute 14 second record it set in last week’s grading time trial in its semi final against the Fonterra Milking It team and again in the final against the Police Five O’s who also went under the record.

 

The Police Five O’s also went through its half of the draw in impressive fashion, beating H & J Smiths Outdoor World comfortably in its semi final.

 

Division Two was won by Fonterra’s second team, Creaming It who beat Southroad’s Slip Streamers team in the final.

 

Organisers of the event, the largest corporate track cycling event in the world, were extremely happy with the day saying crowd numbers exceeded expectations.

 

“To see the biggest crowd ever, watch our largest field ever, go faster than ever, was just fantastic,” Cycling Southland CEO Nick Jeffrey said.

 

“We’ve worked very hard to improve the event and engage the public and we’re very happy with the ways things have gone. The level of racing was very exciting and the atmosphere was just great.”

 

Jeffrey says organisers are already looking forward to next year and going bigger and better again.
