The Grassroots Trust Team Championship presented by Dynamo Events returns to the Waikato region in 2018-2019, with six events open to riders across six different categories, drawing hundreds to the events throughout the spring-summer campaign.

 

Familiar territory in Cambridge will open the 2018 Grassroots Trust Team Championship.  The team at Dynamo Events are all about injecting a little spice and surprise into the series though, and this year is no different.  In previous years the team time trial has featured at the end of the series and last year in the second round.  This year, however, the team time trial will open the series as the first race of two in the day, taking the riders towards Roto O Rangi.  Significantly another change will see riders allowed to use time trial bikes if they wish.

 

The purpose of the Grassroots Trust Team Championship is to provide a competitive teams racing series for riders to compete in a grade that suits riders’ abilities rather than be put into racing with their age groups.  New Zealand’s elite have raced along with upcoming junior riders, with veteran champions and keen hobbyists all able to rub shoulders together in a competitive environment that brings together the great diversity that exists in New Zealand cycling.
