SUBWAY Pro Cycling Team kicks off international season

SUBWAY® Pro Cycling Team kicks off international season with a strong performance in Singapore

9 March 2011

The SUBWAY® Pro Cycling Team kicked off its international season with a strong performance against a mix of world Champions, world record holders and Commonwealth Games gold medallists in the OCBC Cycle Singapore Professional Criterium at the weekend.

Jason Allen made the winning break to finish seventh out of a field of over eighty with only half the riders finishing. SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s Paul Odlin featured throughout the race making all of the key moves to finish 14th and according to team Manager Graeme Miller raced “right on the edge of his ability and was a great controlling factor for Subway Pro Cycling in the race.”

“They raced fantastically well together and it was really encouraging for me to see them gel so well together and to be able to contribute to the race and attack such a high quality field.”

“We had a rider in all of the key moves and had options which were great. It was a good hit out for our first international event of the year and to have all our riders race well and finish strongly was a very, very good result.”

SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s former Omnium World Track Champion Hayden Godfrey was very impressed with the events new course this year which incorporated the Singapore F1 circuit for the first time.

“It was a great atmosphere under the lights with a large crowd and the pace was on the whole time,” Godfrey said. “We were very happy with our first international race of the year and I’m looking forward to confirming our next international event soon.”

SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s fourth rider racing in Singapore was Nick Lovegrove from Auckland.

Italian Omar Bertazzo from the Androni Giocattoli team won the event from Australians Dean Windsor (Rapha Condor-Sharp) and Cameron Meyer (Garmin-Cervelo).

While their team mates were mixing it up with some of the world’s best riders in Singapore, Sam Horgan and Tom Hubbard competed in Queenstown and Wanaka in the Send off to Summer Festival.

Hogan won the festival’s opening criterium and 68 kilometre time trial and was fourth in the 145 kilometre Alpine Classic to finish second in the Festival’s combined tour.

Hubbard was fourth in the tour after solid results in the criterium and time trial to back up his third place finish in the tough road race that twice went over Central Otago’s Crowne Range Pass, the country’s highest sealed highway.

Gordon Campbell: On How National’s ”New” Welfare Plan Resurrects A Past Failure

Sam Uffindell’s defenders keep reminding us that he was only 16 at the time of the King’s College incident, and haven’t we all done things in our teens that, as adults, we look back on with shame and embarrassment? True. Let's be honest. Haven’t we all at one time or another, joined a gang and beaten a smaller, younger kid black and blue with wooden clubs? In that respect, Uffindell’s defenders on the streets of Tauranga risk sounding a bit like the psychiatrist Kargol played by Graham Chapman on Monty Python. Some of the media commentary has also noted how the Uffindell saga has taken the shine off National’s good poll results and distracted us all from the unveiling of an important welfare policy at the recent National Patty conference. OK… So let's put the spotlight back on that welfare policy...
