Gough joins SUBWAY® teammates for Te Awamutu Open


Gough joins SUBWAY® teammates for Te Awamutu Open

12 October 2012

Saturday sees Central Hawke's Bay Olympian Westley Gough join his SUBWAY® Pro Cycling team mates for the first time since he won bronze on the track at the London Olympics.

After taking a break after the Olympic Games Gough is now building towards the Powernet Tour of Southland that starts in Invercargill on Sunday 28 October. He is lining up with SUBWAY® Pro Cycling’s Nick Lovegrove, Scott Creighton, Simon Binney and Matt Gorter in Saturday’s elite 156 kilometre Te Awamutu Open being held near Hamilton.

Elite riders will complete six laps of a challenging circuit that was used for the 2000 national elite road cycling championships.

SUBWAY® Pro Cycling General Manager Hayden Godfrey said it was a good race for riders preparing for Southland and was looking forward to Gough racing again after his break.

Godfrey said the SUBWAY® Pro Cycling team for the Tour of Southland would be named early next week.

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
