Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s open grade riders will compete for the Van Antwerpen trophies from Grovetown tomorrow afternoon.
The open grade 44km handicap event starts and finishes in Vickerman Street, Grovetown and covers 3 laps of the Lower Wairau circuit. The flat and fast circuit has provided some big bunch finishes over the last few years and competition will be keen throughout the handicap marks to keep the scratch markers at bay. Fastest time honours is likely to be fought out between Conway Taylor, Gerard van Antwerpen, Jono Lee and Tony Catterick.
The junior under 17 grade will compete in a 24km handicap event for the Amtman and Sincock trophies. Callum Saunders will be hot favorite for time honours with his closest competition coming from Will Hart, Quinn Karwowski, Brodie Catterick, Nick Blakiston and Leatham Landon-Lane.
