Riders In Two-Up Mode

Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s riders will compete in two-up time trial events  on the Wairau Valley Road course tomorrow afternoon.
The open grade 40km event for the Geddes Memorial Cups starts at the Waihopai Valley turnoff on State Highway 63 and covers a course to just before the Wairau valley township and return. Top contender for fastest time will be the pairing of last years winner Conway Taylor and up and coming youngster Jono Lee who won the Vincent Cup individual time trial 3 weeks back. Their closest rivals could be a pairing of scratch riders Gerard van Antwerpen and Chris Heywood, whilst Brent Ackroyd and Martin Fletcher could be a good combination for a minor placing. All pairings will also be in contention for the sealed handicap cup.
The junior under 17 grade will compete over 20km on the same course. With alot of competition in the back marks this season times will be close amongst the top pairings.
All riders are to assemble opposite the Grove mill winery in waihopai Road at 1pm for a 1.30pm start.
