SUBWAY® Pro Cycling has riders capable of featuring on the podium on both days of this weekend’s Armstrong Motor Group Festival of Cycling in Canterbury.
Paul Odlin, Sam Horgan, Jason Allen and Tom Hubbard all bring good recent form and strong results into racing this weekend which includes the 90 kilometre Waipara Challenge road race on Saturday and City Criterium at Canterbury University on Sunday.
Odlin, Horgan and Allen all featured in tough conditions at various stages of the Powernet Tour of Southland earliest this month. Odlin won the recent last round of the Benchmark Elite Road Racing Tour with Horgan winning the overall series and Hubbard taking the Under 23 riders title.
Allen featured in the Oceania Track Championships in Invercargill last week that he capped off with a fine win in the Madison event racing with Southland’s Tom Scully. He also finished third in the Omnium behind his SUBWAY® Pro Cycling team-mate Westley Gough. Allen is keen to reproduce that track form to repeat his City Criterium win in 2007.
“There is no doubt we have riders that can make the podium on both days of racing at the Festival of Cycling this year,” SUBWAY® Pro Cycling General Manager Hayden Godfrey said.
“The guys are all in good form and Paul (Odlin) and Sam (Horgan) both rode strongly at Taupo at the weekend. They are all capable of winning or making the podium on either day this weekend.”
