Godfrey grabs RaboPlus club road title

World track champion Hayden Godfrey showed his versatility when he sprinted to his maiden victory in the RaboPlus national club road cycling title near Nelson today. Godfrey, who won the omnium title at the International Cycling Union (UCI) World Track Championships last year, went with the break on the 176km race’s penultimate lap before outsprinting young Wellington rider Jack Bauer to take the championship in Upper Moutere.

This made it a clean sweep of road titles for the Subway Avanti team after Gordon McAuley won the national championships earlier in the year. Godfrey got some key help from team-mate Sam Horgan before he used all his experience to roll over Bauer to claim the win, while Horgan took out the under-23 honours.
