Karapoti Classic Mountainbike Race Result

Giant Bicycles Karapoti Classic Mountainbike Race Results

Nelson's Tim Vincent won the Giant Bicycles Karapoti Classic on Sunday, covering 50 km in the Akatarawa ranges near Upper Hutt, in 2 hours 29 minutes.

Vincent travels to Switzerland on Wednesday to join a professional mountain bike team Motorex-Bianchi. He will race the European circuit this summer.

He said the race was a lot harder than last time, and he felt he really earned his win. Vincent took the lead late in the race after chasing Wellington's Jonty Ritchie down.

Last year's winner Sadie Parker (Auckland) repeated the feat to win again this year, in 3 hours 5 minutes, ahead of Wellington's Robyn Wong.
