Some of you may have seen the Pure Black Racing Pro Cycling team training around the Hawkes Bay over the past week.
Pure Black are New Zealand's first international UCI ProTour road cycling team. Arriving last Saturday after coming 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th and 7th (hire the guy that got 5th boys) in the Taupo to Napier Race, they've been living out at Waimarama for the week and training around the Bay.
The Bay is a great place to train and they've enjoyed the relaxed environment and surf over the past week. We hope we'll see the Pure Black team around next year and wish them well for their upcoming international season.
