Junior under 19 rider Jamie Hawke was in good form to win both stages for overall victory in Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s Bike HQ Summernite series road race no5 at Fairhall last Wednesday evening.
Stage one covered a 12km course from Wither Hills Winery into the Ridge Resort and then up Brancott Road to finish up the Bookers Road climb. The Ridge Resort climb split the field with Josh Scott and Hawke going clear with six riders in the main chasing group. Hawke took the final climb by 12 seconds from Scott with Gerard van Antwerpen taking third at 58 seconds. The second stage over 12km covered a return journey over Brancott Road, Godfreys Road and New Renwick Road. Eight riders rode clear in Godfreys Road with the final sprint home again being taken by Hawke from Scott and van Antwerpen.
The overall time result went to Hawke with no change in the results after stage one. The sealed handicap section was taken out by Kevin Hawkins by 16 seconds to Ali Windleburn and another 1 minute 4 seconds back to Scott in third place.
