Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
The opening of the Invercargill's Kew Bowl cycling track was plagued with bad luck and it took the third attempt to officially open the new concrete track in 1957. The track was first built in 1949, but was grass with no fences. The track was made redundant, 50 years later in 2006 when the new Invercargill velodrome was built.
Opposite, Kelvin Hastie competed this day. He was former Otago-Southland road time trial winner and 10 mile track champion.
All clubs from Otago and Southland were represented at the opening with good times anticipated.
Alan Larkins from Dunedin and who had just competed at the 1956 Olympic games, competed.
Other riders to compete were:
Stuart McKenzie, John McDermott, Ray Alcock, Peter Coates, W. Agnew, Alex Panagiotidis, B. Broome, M. Dryden, B. Finnie, I Telfer.
