Team Time Trial Challenge

Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s riders will compete in team time trial events from Renwick tomorrow afternoon.
The open grade 40km event will cover a course from the Waihopai turnoff on State Highway 63 to turn just before Wairau Valley township and return. The top team of Tony Catterick, Chris Heywood, Gerard van Antwerpen and Conway Taylor are hoping to clock around the 53 minute mark, depending on conditions. The minor placings will be close with the interesting combination of Jono Lee, Paul Johnson, Ryan Lock and Sean O,Neill up against Martin Fletcher, Todd Neal, Marcel Mulder and David Craig. Three other teams could also go under the hour mark with competition expected to be tight.
The junior under 17 grade will also compete in a team event over 20km.
All riders are to assemble opposite the Grove Mill Winery at 1pm for a 1.30pm start.
