Benchmark Homes 8 elite road cycling series - Round Eight

3rd Noret Grand Prix at Oxford – Saturday, 13th October 2007

Nelson-based Paul Odlin (Laurie Dawe Cycling Team) wrapped up the 2007 Benchmark Homes 8 elite road cycling series on Saturday holding off a late charge from Hayden Roulston for Canterbury's premier road cycling title.  Odlin's consistency throughout the eight-race series has added his name to the 'Bruce & Amy Dawe Cup' following on from previous winners of the title, Brian Fowler (2005) and Robin Reid (2006).

Roulston (Tinwald) produced an outstanding ride on the roads around Oxford to head home a select group of five at the end of the 142km Noret Grand Prix.  Former junior World road champion Jeremy Yates (Subway Cycling Team) almost stole the show when he escaped the lead group in the closing kilometres only to be passed by Roulston with the finish line in sight.  BikeNZ track squad members Alex Cull and Shem Rodger rode well to finish just behind the established road riders.

Odlin's lead going into the final round was just enough to hold off Roulston for the overall title, whilst Otago's Joe Chapman (Harty's – Lowe & Associates) narrowly held off Reon Park (Kelford – Reiker Cycling Team) for third place.

Despite crashing out of Saturday's round, rising star Daniel Barry (Benchmark Homes Cycling Team) won the Under 23 classification, whilst Tracy Clark (Laurie Dawe Cycling Team) rode well to take out the Women's classification despite finishing behind team-mate Annaliisa Farrell on the day.  Former Olympian Fowler (Kelford – Reiker Cycling Team) took out the Over 40 classification with ease.

Benchmark Homes Cycling Team won the Team classification after winning five of the eight rounds this year.
