Southland Produces Another World Champion

Media Release / News Update

The good news continues for Cycling Southland with Southland cyclist Sue Roy becaming our latest World Champion when she won the UCI World Master's 40km Road Championship event in St Johann, Austria last night.

This was Sue's third attempt at winning the Championship title and came close to victory three years ago when gaining the silver medal in the road event.

Following a serious cycling accident in England during her build up prior to last year's Championship event which left her with a cracked vertebra, Sue almost gave the sport away but decided to pursue her passion and have another attempt at achieving her four year goal.

Sue left her position as a teacher at Longford Intermediate School in Gore earlier this year to prepare for the World Championship event and her many hours of training have paid off with this outstanding result.

Her dream of winning the world title was almost shattered last week while competing in a World Cup event in France when a spectator came onto the road. Sue managed to swerve wildly and fight on to take a credible third place. Last night's championship title saw an elated Southlander stand proud on the dais – her mission completed.

Cycling Southland Convenor Tony Ineson said that Sue's victory was a credit to her courage and determination and has capped off a fine week for Cycling Southland, with the announcement of the go ahead for New Zealand's first indoor Velodrome plus John Alabaster winning the World Championship time trial on Wednesday night.
