Required Gear:Gloves and hatWarm merino gearWind/rainproof jacket is Highly Recommended.Note: Mid June is WINTER in New Zealand. This is especially so in Central Otago where we get the coldest winters in the country. One of special characteristics is our frosty mornings followed by crisp, clear calm days. So it could well be below freezing for the race start, you’ll soon warm up on the climbs… Might get up to 12-16’C later in the morning…or it could be windy/rainy/snowy. Please dress appropriately.
