Peoples Champion King Again
8 Jan, 2010

Gordon McCauley has taken back the crown he lost 12 months ago and regained his status as the countries number one Individual time trial specialist in taking out the event today at the Raboplus Elite road nationals in Christchurch.  The hard man of Auckland cycling and team Subway Captain recorded a blistering 50.10 for the 40km winning the Elite male class by a commanding 55 seconds from last years Champion Jeremy Vennell.

McCauley will have to watch his back in seasons to come though as team mate Michael Vink winner of the Under 23 class was just four seconds of the pace of McCauley in a time of 50.14 which would have seen him claim the silver in the Open.  The mainstay of the NZ Teams pursuit team Westley Gough, Jesse Sergent and Shem Rodger took out 2nd through 4th in the U23 Class.

The diesel engine of New Zealand womens cycling Melissa Holt took a step closer to her goal of making the Commonwealth Games team when she won the ITT title for the third year straight.  The elite cyclist come Ironman beat class acts Alison Shanks (silver) and much welcomed new New Zealander Linda Villumsen formely of Denmark (bronze).  The competition was close amongst the medals with these three seperated by just 56 seconds.
