SBS Bank Tour of Southland

PowerNet’s major sponsorship of the PowerNet Tour of Southland ended in 2012. It was the 12th year as the major sponsor for New Zealand’s premier multi-stage cycle road race.

In 2013 the tour gained major sponsorship from SBS Bank.

The six day cycling event travels throughout much of Southland and into Queenstown Lakes area, capturing the attention and support of the local communities along the way. The economic impact of the event to the region is reported to be approximately $2.5 million.

PowerNet has continued their involvement in the Tour by sponsoring a team.

The 2014 PowerNet  team consisted of Brad Evans, Roman van Uden, Ryal Wills, Paul Odlin, Tim Rush and Robert Huisman.
