New Zealand placed two riders in the top 10 in the U23 men's TT, with last year's bronze medalist Peter Latham in 9th and Logan Hutchings in 7th. "It was alright," Latham told Cyclingnews after the finish. "It was a really hard course. You had to be on a good day to do a good ride and I just wasn't on top of it."
Hutchings was also fairly happy: "That was OK. The course was pretty hard and I was hoping to go faster. It was really hard to judge with the timing (of my effort). Maybe I went out too slow but it was pretty hard to know."
On Saturday's race, Hutchings said, "I'm quite confident. It's another hilly course and I'm climbing well so as long as I can stay out of trouble at the start and with a bit of luck it could go well."
