Training and Development

The Grassroots Trust Waikato Bay of Plenty Performance Hub squad trains weekly at the Avantidrome and the Hub will run scheduled development camps for wider groups of riders throughout the year. For more information email performancehubs@cyclingnewzealand.nz

Coaches

Hub riders will be supported by an experienced coaching team who will be based locally and will be led by Jon Andrews. Jon has a strong cycling history, competing at Olympic and Commonwealth Games where he won two bronze medals in Auckland in 1990. For the last 23 years he has been involved in coaching, most recently with the Junior Track team at the World Championships in Aigle, Switzerland in July 2016.

"This is a fantastic opportunity to help develop the next generation of New Zealand's cycling champions. With so many talented cyclists coming through the ranks, there's a real need for a strong development programme as a pathway into New Zealand's high performance programme which is already world class. I'm looking forward to working with the wider Cycling New Zealand team that help make high performance possible, and are vital in building a sustainable, world class development system."
