2018 North Island Series belated wrap-up

NIS team

The 5 race Trust House 2018 Team Series, Wellingtons premier team road racing was a blast, professionally run over challenging circuits and with tremendous support the series again produced some fantastic close racing and plenty of argy bargy in the finales !!

Onslow Tar Babies riders – riding for KiwiVelo and PAKnSAVE Kilbirnie fielded 3 teams – two in Masters 2 (younger) and one in Masters 3 (mature).  Over the 5 races our team members continuously placed well, with stage wins and top ten placings – full results here.

At the end of the series OTB riders took out all the #1 GC places with; 

Brendan McGrath (on loan to MeoGP) 1st place GC Masters 1

Matthew Stevens – KiwiVelo – 1st place GC Master 2

Ian Paintin – KiwiVelo – 1st place GC Master 3

And with an amazingly consistent performance KiwiVelo Masters 2  (team turnout for the final race pictured) took out the #1 M2 team title.

2019 promises to be even better with the organisers committing to a Womens grade – interested, lets see if we can get behind it – 2019 North Island Series
