Henderson & Bauer Olympic Bound
27 Jun, 2012

BikeNZ announced today the top two road racers in the country that will represent NZ at the London Olympic Games.  The popular Greg Henderson (Lotto - Beilisol) will headline the NZ campaign in the road race with support from the talented World Tour deutant Jack Bauer (Garmin-Sharp).  Bauer will will also line up as New Zealand's sole entrant in the time trial, after finishing 14th in the final stage time trial of this year's Giro d Italia Bauer stands a solid chance of make the top 15 in the Olympic event.

It will be Henderson’s fifth Olympics after his debut at the 1996 Atlanta Games for the team pursuit.

"Henderson has been a form rider on the World Tour for the last three years, earning his first start in the Tour de France that begins this week, for his Lotto-Belisol team" said BikeNZ High Performance Director, Mark Elliott.

"Greg has been in the professional peloton for a number of years and his elevation to the Tour de France is arguably something he has deserved for the last two years. This will provide him with the ideal platform for the Olympic road race."

"Jack is an immensely talented athlete, a big, powerful rider whose abilities have been well and truly recognised by the top teams. Jack’s abilities are suited to this type of circuit where he will be required to play a key support role for Henderson. Added to that Jack is an accomplished time triallist and he is a top-15 prospect for London in that event."

Backing up the duo in the reserves are New Zealand's other World Tour stars Hayden Roulston and Julian Dean.
