Fiji start

October Tour of Fiji

The Tour of Fiji from 8-12Oct11 was used by the Tonga Squad as part of their preparations for their Dec event.

The event started from Suva, went through Nausori, Korovou, & Rakiraki where it spent 2 nights before returning to finish in Suva.

After the completing the race distance for Day1 the team decided to enjoy the perfect conditions on Day1 with a fun ride which saw them complete the entire distant between Suva & Rakiraki on their bikes.

The very wet conditions on Day2&3 of the event was a perfect test of the squads ability to travel away from home to a distant location and  compete in an environment outside their comfort zone.

The success of the event was through the hardwork of the following: the athletes & their families, Sponsors of the Tour of Fiji, the Fiji Womens Crisis Center for the squad's accommodation at Rakiraki, & Cycling Fiji who organised the event.
