Le Race Sponsorship

Holmwood Sponsors 2018 Le Race

Le Race is a 100km cycling race with mixture of challenging hill climbs, fast flats and exhilarating downhills that travels from Cathedral Sqaure in Christchurch, across an extinct volcano, to the French surrounds of Akaroa.

It has been won by some of the country’s leading cyclists, including nine time Tour of Southland winner and Commonwealth Games medallist Brian Fowler, former junior world champion Jeremy Yates, Commonwealth Games representative and Olympian Heath Blackgrove, six time New Zealand duathlon champion Mark Bailey and in recent times Christchurch pro cyclists Sam Horgan, Michael Vink and teenager Keagan Girdlestone, who in 2014 was the events youngest ever winner.

We are delighted to sponsor the upcoming Le Race on Saturday 24th March and are offering a $500 prize for the first man and first woman to break the Le Race record!!
