Bauer wins washed-out stage

The Tour of Wellington was left thunderstruck a day after AC/DC wound up its New Zealand tour leg in the city, with the race’s final stage cancelled due to atrocious weather conditions. That didn’t stop the racing, however, with some riders choosing to suffer the conditions and put on a show for the locals in a 30 minute criterium.

Jack Bauer (Trust House Team) came out on top at the end of the criterium, with compatriot Mike Northey (Team Bici Vida) holding off Australia’s William Clarke (Genesys Wealth Advisers) for second. Not all entrants in the Tour of Wellington chose to start the reduced criterium.

With the final stage cancelled and not counting towards the general classification, Michael Torckler (Cardno Team) wasn’t forced to defend his five second lead over Lachlan Norris (Drapac Porsche). South Africa’s Jay Thompson (Fly V Australia) rounded out the overall podium.
