Start List Announced for New Zealand Tour

Wellington area, 7 - 11 March

 

Organiser 'blown away by quality of field

Entries for the Trust House Women’s Tour of New Zealand have now closed, and organisers of the Wellington race say they've been blown away by the quality of the field.

Two of the top three professional teams in the world are racing in Wellington.  Six riders in the top 21 in the world will be coming and eight of the top ten cycling nations in the world will be represented in the event.

The two highest ranked New Zealanders on the list are Joanne Kiesanowski, ranked 36th and Sarah Ulmer ranked 27th, both will ride as part of the Trust House New Zealand national team.

Race Director Jorge Sandoval says the standard of the field is well beyond all of his expectations. He says he's had to turn down several overseas riders because he simply couldn't fit them into teams.

To have the reigning champions from three of the biggest cycling nations in the world, Sweden, The Netherlands and Switzerland plus two former World Champions and current Olympic champions racing on New Zealand soil, is a privilege to any sport. 

On top of this we have national teams from Australia, Germany and of course New Zealand as well as professional teams from USA, the Netherlands and Germany.

Our events are getting recognised all over the world, Sandoval said. “Wellington is being seen as the capital of events and the Hutt Valley and Wairarapa as perfect areas to stage international cycling tours and that’s why we are attracting this calibre of rider every year.

The Trust House Women’s Tour of New Zealand is the only international cycle race for women in this country. The sports governing body, the UCI, has granted international status to the new five-day women’s classic in March 2007.

The Trust House Women's Tour of New Zealand gets underway on Wednesday March 7, with a criterium around the Avalon. Lower Hutt circuit. On Thursday stage two takes the riders from Martinborough to Masterton, followed by mountain stages on Friday and Saturday. The tour heads to Wellington on Sunday for the fifth stage time trial around the Miramar Peninsula and the final stage a criterium at the bottom of Lambton Quay in Wellington.
