Wanaka cy­clist Mikayla Har­vey won the na­tional un­der-23 women’s time trial ti­tle last week with just three sec­onds to spare.

Har­vey’s time over the 20km course was 31.19, while Ge­or­gia Cat­trick of Tas­man/Il­lu­mi­nate posted 31:22. Rylee McMullen of Auck­land/Roxsalt fin­ished in 31.33 for third place.

The un­der-23 men’s 40km time trial ti­tle was won by Re­gan Gough (Hawkes Bay/An PostChain Re­ac­tion) in 54 min­utes neat. James Fouche (Auck­land) was sec­ond and Jake Mar­ry­att (Can­ter­bury) third.

Har­vey, 18, is a New Zealand ju­nior cy­cling rep­re­sen­ta­tive with two ju­nior world cham­pi­onships un­der her belt and was cy­cling at the na­tion­als for the Mike Greer Homes team.

The Cen­tral Otago Wakatipu Cy­cle Club mem­ber com­pleted her stud­ies at Mt Aspir­ing Col­lege at the end of last year.

Har­vey also com­peted in the women’s road race but did not fin­ish.

Wanaka ju­nior moun­tain bike rep­re­sen­ta­tive Paul Wright was home from his stud­ies in the United States and com­peted in the un­der-23 cat­e­gory, but was un­placed.
