Cycling –
Hannah Bartram and Jenna Borthwick competed at the Southern Tour in Blenheim last weekend. The tour consisted of four stages and points were accumulated over the stages based on placings in each event. The second event was also the National Schools Criterium Champs. At the same time as the overall points (yellow jersey) were allocated they were also racing for Sprint Ace points (green jersey) and Queen of the Mountain points (polka dot jersey).

Hannah had a fantastic weekend racing in the under 20 age group and came away with the yellow jersey as overall winner of the tour. Hannah also won the silver medal in the criterium nationals.

Jenna competed in the under 16 age group and finished 4th overall, 2nd in the sprint ace points and won the bronze medal in the criterium nationals.

The fields were very strong with riders from Auckland to Invercargill including numerous national champions and NZ representatives.

Charlotte Lee has certainly been noticed by Hockey New Zealand, gaining selection into the New Zealand U18 Development squad as well as in the New Zealand U21 Women’s squad to attend a selection camp in the Hawkes Bay from 8-12 October.
