NRS Tasman Junior Tour

4 - 6 March 2022

ROUND 3: NRS Tasman Junior Tour

This event is the last NRS event before Oceania team selection.

Date: 5 - 6 March 2022

Race Type: 2 day, 3 stage tour

NRS Grades: Boys and Girls – U15, U17, U19

NRS Points Allocated: GC, Stage, Sprint, KOM/QOM 

The NRS Tasman Junior Tour is a four-stage tour from the 4th to the 6th of March 2022.

Race categories will be as per the Cycling New Zealand rules for age groups:

U15 boys and girls

U17 boys and girls

U19 boys and girls (note: as per the NRS Junior Tour rules some over 19 women may be granted entry into the U19 girls category).

The four stages are as follow:

  1. George Bennett Hill Climb

  2. Hope Circuit Kermesse – a flat circuit suited to the sprinters but with the chance of success for a well-timed break.

  3. Five Valleys road race – a scenic, undulating course that features a gravel sector, two pave sectors for the U19’s and a power climb to the finish – Nelson’s own ‘Spring Classic’.

  4. Upper Moutere Circuit road race – the Queen Stage, a real racers course on excellent country roads that rides a lot more ‘grippy’ than the profile would suggest.

Safety Note: For the safety of all riders unless they are an official race/support vehicle, supporters vehicles are not permitted on the race course during racing. Riders are not permitted to receive bottles/food from supporters on the side of the road unless the rider comes to a complete stop to collect the bottle.

COVID Note: The Tour will proceed if the Nelson/Tasman region is in Level 2 or less (or whatever the equivalent traffic light system is). If riders sign up for the race during the ‘early bird’ timing and then cannot attend due to their home region being in Covid lockdown, or them personally having Covid, they will receive a full refund. If riders sign up after the ‘early bird’ timing and then cannot attend due to their home region being in Covid lockdown, or them personally having Covid, they will receive a 50% refund on their entry fees.

U23 Women:

The U19 women’s grade is open to domestic level U23 riders who are looking for more competition opportunities to continue their participation in the sport and their development. While each application will be considered on a case-by-case basis, consideration will be given if a U23 rider will add and gain value to the experience and supports the objectives of racing in the U19 field. These U23 riders must race in restricted gears, will not be eligible for U19 points or jerseys and may not receive podium prizes.

If you are an U23 rider who is interested to take part in this NRS event please email Cycling New Zealand to apply and be considered: events@cyclingnewzealand.nz

 

NRS Series Leader Jerseys:

The 2022 NRS will include series leader jersey which will be awarded for those who are leading the series to wear at the next event. This will be for the NRS Yellow, Green and KOM/QOM jerseys. Riders will get presented these at the start of this event, to be worn for the duration of this event (unless they get into a tour jersey, of which would take precedence and the NRS jersey would not be worn). The rider wearing the NRS series leader jersey would not change from stage to stage, only from event to event. The rider must return this jersey at the conclusion of the event, and a CNZ representative will award this jersey at the next event. At the conclusion of the NRS Series the jerseys will be awarded and the riders with the highest number of points for the series will then keep the jersey.
