Benchmark Homes Elite Cycling Series Queenstown Round

Round 5 of the Benchmark Homes Elite Cycling Series was held in Queenstown on the course used for Club Nationals and last years Oceania Champs. A cool crisp morning turned into fine day which highlighted the amazing scenery. The racers all came to put on a show and early aggression paid off in all races. 4th place for Sam Horgan was sufficient to put him in the Elite series overall lead. Hopefully his Team Budget Forklifts commitments will allow him to ride the final round to seal the win. Lucy Timmings completed her first Benchmark race and was the first U19 woman to finish.
