"There have been inquiries from Club as to whether or not there will be an official NZ team for the Oceanias this year and some riders may be putting off booking airfares waiting for a team announcement. MTBNZ will not be organising and riders are recommended to book airfares now rather than wait for any team announcement. Please pass this information on to members of your Clubs who may be planning to attend the Oceanias. Malcolm Thomas, Secretary, MTBNZ"
