Male team


Team #177

South Island race course selected
Masters 1 (all 50 and over), South Island5 bikes "Nga Koro cycling for Unicorn Foundation"

Our team

We are Team Unikoro - Dean, Maelen, Malcolm, Pete and Gaz. We all ride together with 30-odd others as Nga Koro based in Mount Eden, Auckland. We decided to ride the tour of NZ in support of our good friend Malcolm Leggatt. Malcolm was diagnosed with a neuroendocrine (NET) cancer a few years ago. He has had treatment and is doing okay. He has thrown himself behind the Unicorn Foundation, which is the charity that support patients with NET cancers, and is now the Chairman of their Board. He is a great inspiration and we want to help him out so we are throwing ourselves behind him. Nga Koro riding for Unicorn = "UniKoro", get it?
We would really appreciate your support by donating to the Unicorn Foundation using the link on this page. Ride on!
