Not club organised = $$
Close to home for me....if I start training now....
Coxy and Dynamo Events pride themselves on running affordable, well organised events. I doubt that the events will be more expensive than in recent years. It is also much more accessible than in previous years so the transport costs should be less overall.
Recent years? Napier, Wanganui, Napier, Queenstown . . . . . transport cost were ok for 3 out of 4 of those, hell even Queenstown was just on $1000 to drive, fuel and ferry there . . Queenstown is the exception but once in 4 years to the South Island aint so bad.
Well organized is a plus . . . . what the event needs id the full support of bike NZ (i.e no other bike NZ endorsed events on the same weekend) and the endorsement of all the club riders in NZ to attend. Give the event some status (BikeNZ age group nationals etc) . . .
I dunno, how much would you pay to enter each event at the nationals? $25?, $40?, $100 . . . .
