Kaytee Boyd heads to the line


Mens podium L-R Mike Northey - Tim Gudsell - Sam Bewley

Gudsell Triumphant in NZ Criterium Championships
11 Dec, 2010

The people of Auckland and in particular the host city of Takapuna were treated to a spectacle of lightening fast speed on wheels around the North Shore CBD last night.  Tim Gudsell fresh back from his French base was motivated to put a tough season plagued with injury behind him and take the jersey of NZ criterium champion to his new home for 2011 Pure Black Racing.
Gudsell when free from injury is one of the most talented racers NZ has produced and the former track star relished the conditions and turned on the speed to take the title in incredible solo fashion with 2011 team-mate Mike Northey taking out second place in what has been a string of top performances for the North Shore resident who has come of age this season winning a stage in the Tour of Southland and more recently the Armstrong Prestige Criterium in Christchurch last weekend.  Rounding out the top three making it a star studded podium was team RadioShack professional Sam Bewley of Rotorua.

In the Elite women’s race it was professional rider Kaytee Boyd who has been campaigning successfully this season on the Italian circuit.  Boyd was too quick in the finale heading off Philippa Sutton and Laura Gretton for second and third.
