Good Field Expected For Two-Up TT

Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s riders will compete in the popular two-up time trial event for the Geddes Memorial Cups on the Wairau Valley Road course tomorrow afternoon.
The open grade 40km event starts at the Waihopai Valley turnoff on State Highway 63 and covers a course to just before the Wairau Valley township and return. The favourite pairing for fastest time will be Gerard van Antwerpen and Jeremy McKenzie, whilst the combinations of Brent Ackroyd/Mike Murphy and Lee Griggs/Todd Neal could be a good chance for a minor placing. All pairings will also be in contention for the sealed handicap cup.
The junior under 17 grade and any riders wishing to compete in a shorter event will ride over 20km on the same course.
All riders are to assemble opposite the Grove Mill Winery in Waihopai Valley Road at 1pm for a 1.30pm start.
