The only way to change it is to get your centre to put in a remit now, and convince the centres that its not in the best interest of NZ Track Cycling to split the Nationals and vote accordingly. Clearly there are a few centres who have their members being coersed by some of the powers that be in cycling... so its really up to the riders, parents and supporters to ensure that the centres know their views.
Make no mistake though..the change was purely to give our international riders the chance to pick up easy UCI points...and not for the good of the sport
Agreed,its great that us juniors can borrow kit off older, better cyclists. But I agree with gydie on this:Fergie wrote:One upside is that good fellas like Michael Vink, Alan Williams and Chad Adair (and others) are able to loan their equipment to the Juniors for their Nationals. We really appreciate that!

overlapping of key events ie mens points and IP..is that good and will it be detrimental to performance
less recovery between events... is that they key for world class performances
