The Loburn 68 replaces the Takahe to Akaroa, and this year is the venue for the New Zealand National Road Relays. DGRS will be seeking to at least repeat last years 3rd overall club in New Zealand success. We expect again to field some very competitive teams, with the Canterbury Road Champs on the 26 August being the main selection event. But even if you don't make a team aiming for a podium finish, there will be a place for you in a DGRS team aiming for collectively do the best we can and enjoy what is the premier Club event of the season. Registration by Friday 8 September so that Don can organise the teams.
