Ian Smallman from the SUBWAY® Pro Cycling team won back to back races in Nelson and Christchurch at the weekend.

Smallman beat former Olympic cyclists Robin Reid and Chris Nicholson to win round five of Nelson’s winter series held in the Moutere District on Saturday. He then backed up to win the final round of the PushbikesWinterWorlds series A grade race held in Prebbleton on Sunday.

“I was stoked to win both days,” the Christchurch based cyclist said.
