The Oamaru Town Bikes

Wrightsock New Zealand are proud to get behind and sponsor the The Oamaru Town Bikes: a team on a mission to conquer the Torpedo 7 Spring Challenge, a gruelling 3, 6 or 9 hour challenge in which teams raft, bike, and hike their way to the finish line!

The Team

The Name.

It's an interesting one, and we were relieved to find out that the reason behind the name is there is a store in Oamaru called the Town Bikes who are also co-sponsoring the team, hence the name! Phew!

Fiona (centre)

The fittest of the bunch!

Fi is a mum of two. She runs with a smile on her face and has completed many events including two marathons.

Fi’s hubby Ben is her chief supporter and she motivates the team with her scones, soup and the spring in her step.

Jude (left)

The strong, determined member of the team!

Jude has two kids and hails from Oamaru. She has been around the world dragging her Irishman Pete back to her hometown.

She recently ticked the Motatapu marathon off her bucket list so has the stamina and grit ideal for the Spring Challenge.

Ashley (right)

The youngest, vivacious, glamour member of the team!

Ash is a mother of three young lads. She is new to competitive racing but has a strong rowing, netball and rugby background.

Ash’s husband Luke is entered into NZ’s first ultra marathon – Alps to Ocean. Needless to say, there is a lot of lycra in their house!

We look forward to bringing you the latest on The Town Bikes as they train their way to the start line! All the best ladies!
