Three Titles In A Row For Kidd

Cuddon Cycling Marlborough rider Jamie Kidd completed a hat-trick of road race titles at the national club road cycling championships near Nelson yesterday.

Kidd claimed victory in the AWD category – the third year in a row he has taken gold in the road race, following victory in Wanganui last year and Karaka in 2007.

Former Marlborough rider Brent Harris claimed the masters 50-54 years title riding for Canterbury club Pegasus. He headed home the final sprint to win the 80km event in two hours nine minutes 56 seconds.

Cuddon Cycling Marlborough member Sonia Ginders narrowly missed a medal in the under-15 girls’ competition, finishing fifth in the sprint finish.

Callum Saunders was ninth in the under-15 boys while Will Hart finished in the main bunch.

Road racing continues today and concludes tomorrow.
