Tony Catterick Takes Windy Win

Tony Catterick sprinted in to take line honours in Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s summernite series Cycle World graded race No1 at Fairhall last Wednesday evening.
Conditions were extremely tough for the riders with strong winds on the course starting at Wither Hills Winery and covering laps of the Benmorven circuit before finishing into the Ridge Resort. The ‘A’ grade 41km event covered 4 laps with the leading 8 riders breaking up in the last few kilometres. Catterick just headed off Gerard van Antwerpen for the win with Brodie Catterick 5 seconds back in third place. The ‘B’ grade 32km event covering 3 laps saw 7 riders finish together with Junior under 17 rider Nick Blakiston taking the sprint from Craig Murphy and Michelle Catterick.
