PureBlack Racing to Tackle Jayco Herald Sun Tour
6 Oct, 2011

PureBlack Racing have been invited to race in the Jayco Herald Sun Tour a UCI 2HC race in Melbourne on 12-16 October.  The PureBlack Racing team of Tim Gudsell, Glen Chadwick, Roman Van Uden, Mike Northey, James Williamson and Shem Rodger are one of 18 teams contesting the race this year.


“The Jayco Herald Sun Tour is one of the highest UCI classification events we’ll do this year.  It’s a real privilege to be representing New Zealand and our sponsors at the highest level in a top Australian event.  We had a really successful year in the US in our inaugural season and we’re looking to continue our aggressive style of racing in Melbourne next week,” says Carl Williams, Sports Director of PureBlack Racing.


Tim Gudsell a member of the six-man PureBlack Racing team says, “We’re really excited to be doing this race as it’s the highest profile race close to home this year and it’s the first time the PureBlack Racing Pro team has raced in Australia.  We’re racing some really strong teams like Skil-Shimano and Gamin-Cervelo from the Pro Tour level so it’ll be a great race.”


James Williamson who has just returned from representing New Zealand at the U23 World Championships in Demark says, “Since we arrived back in New Zealand we’ve continued our strong form with Tim Gudsell leading a clean sweep of the podium in the Taupo to Napier race and Dan Barry winning the Round the Mountain centenary race last week. We’re fielding a strong squad so we’re hoping to come away with some good results next week too.”


Carl Williams says as the team is looking to bigger goals next year in Europe and Asia the race is going to be a really important stepping stone. “Jayco Herald Sun Tour and the Tour of Southland are our last major events for this year."
