Team Kapiti Grade 4


Good day out. Very encouraging and I'm confident we'll podium very soon. 

We initiated the winning break with Ian Riddle getting away in a group of seven. Unfortunately the pressure in the group, race hardnen fitness and with 3x teams represented with 2x riders each resulted in Ian getting shelled. Great effort though and I'm sure we can make it stick next time. 

Lee initiated a break on the 2nd lap uphill and into a head wind. It was always going to be a brave break attempt. Chapeau Lee. 

With the winning break away, our next best result was initiate a 2nd break (to secure 7th) or field sprint. Tristan and I spoke and we agreed I'd keep the pace strong off the front to dull legs and see what happened. With 20km to go, Ian Cooke (cookie) jumped from the pack - and set about pulling in a single loan rider and ultimately put him in the hurt locker up the last two climbs so secure 7th and our best possible salvage with no representation in the winning break. Super effort Ian. 

Lots of great contributions from all the team. Super proud gents. Everyone gave 100%...you can't ask for more. 

Giddy up for our next one boys.
