Bevin backs up Bennett
Te Awamutu Sports' Patrick Bevin did a great job riding in support of World Tour star George Bennett in one of the toughest World Championship road race tests at the ski resort of Innsbruck, Austria.
Bennett, as planned, was the last Kiwi standing.
“The biggest thing was riding with a great bunch of Kiwi guys,” he says.
“The race was super hard from the start which surprised us. It meant that Paddy (Bevin), Dion (Smith) and Sam (Bewley) had to work harder much earlier. But they looked after me and it was a really well-run team. That's the big positive for me.”
Bevin, Smith and Bewley did not finish the race.
