Close Competition For TT

Close competition is expected amongst Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s top riders when they compete in the Vincent Cup/Verhey Cup time trial event on the Waihopai Valley Road tomorrow afternoon.
The open grade 40km time trial event starts at the Grove Mill Winery and covers a rolling course to just beyond Craiglochart and return. Fastest time honours for the Vincent Cup will probably be a close battle between youngsters Peter Crampton and Brodie Catterick, although seasoned riders Josh Scott and Tony Catterick will also be a big challenge. The dark horse will again be George Baxter with the time trial being a new challenge to him. A sealed handicap will be held on the event with the Verhey Cup going to the handicap winner.
The junior under 17 grade will compete in a 16km time trial to the Spy Base and return. Quinn Karwowski will be the favourite for fastest time with Georgia Catterick next in line. Newcomers fighting out third place will be Thomas Westend, Ethan Brydon and Christopher Grammer.
All riders are to assemble opposite the Grove Mill Winery at 1pm for a 1.30pm start.
