NZ Cycle Classic

Just finished up at the NZ Cycle Classic today in Palmerston North. Great week of racing for the Huon Salmon Genesys Cycling Team taking the overall GC win with Nathan Earle and three stage wins to boot.

At the Sun Tour in Australia earlier this month the managers on the team came up to me after the opening time trial and exclaimed, "We didn't know you could prologue!!" and I replied, "Well, sometimes..."

Prologues are something I really enjoy focusing on when in form so I went into the NZ Cycle Classic confident with my preparation and knowing I should be right up there for the opening 7km prologue. Taking the win by 12 seconds to my team mate was the perfect start and set the tone for the whole tour that the team meant business.

It's been a busy month so I'm really looking forward to an easy week back home in Wellington catching up with friends & family and finally taking the time to celebrate the national time trial title win properly.
