Waipa Post - - Front Page -

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.
