Niels van Antwerpen Retains Club Champs Title

The open grade event over 40km was held over two laps of the Seaview course. Good conditions produced a good pace over the event. The first climb out of Seddon spread-eagled the field with Nick Batt, Gerard and Niels van Antwerpen going clear. Richard Olliver almost got back a couple of times but was kept at bay. The final lap unfortunately saw Batt puncture with a few kilometres to go. Niels van Antwerpen put the pressure on at the top of the climb to ride away from his father Gerard. Niels retained the Overall Title by 15 sec to Gerard with another 4m08s back to Oliver in third place.
