One of only three teams to have competed in all 10 editions of the Cycling Southland Corporate Pursuits, the AWS Legal team scorched through the 500m on the first night of Roller Racing at the Lone Star.
Setting a time of 1minute 48.632 the team was anchored by newcomer to the event, Renata Davis who set an impressive individual time of 24.342 seconds.
The first heat of the Lone Star/Speights Roller Racing also resulted in some strong performances in the men’s and women’s finals respectively.
The men’s result came down to the last handful of pedal strokes with Waihopai Health Service team member Bryan Stout securing a tight victory over Davis and Cameron Murphy (AWS Legal). While Janett Hodgetts (Environment Southland) proved too powerful for her opposition stopping the clock with a 27.331 seconds effort.
Racing continues over the next two Tuesday evenings before the top teams do battle in the finals.
AWS Legal 1.48.632
