The 2013 Southland Road Champs are to be held on the weekend of 6-7 April. The Time Trail Championships will be held on an out and back course from McQuarrie Street on Gorge Road with the Road Race Championships at Te Tipua on the New Vale Coal circuit on Sunday 7 April.


The Southland road cycling champions were decided in Te Tipua on Sunday in near perfect conditions. Medals were handed out across 11 seperate age categories with some closely fought racing across the grades.

Hunter Gough and Josh Miller engaged in yet another close battle in the Under 13 Boys with Gough reversing the tables from Saturday's Time Trial with a five second victory while older sister Madeleine added the Under 15 girls road race title to her burgeoning list of cycling achievements.

Corbin Strong took the Under 15 Boys title over Hamish Keast with a well-timed final sprint with multiple national track champion Kain Bowles earning bronze, four seconds back. The Under 17 boys turned in to a three way battle with Tom Sexton holding Hayden Strong at bay in the final sprint to take gold, with Hamish Beadle finishing third, 19 seconds adrift of the top two.

Makayla Smith completed a perfect weekend, backing up her commanding time trial win with an equally impressive 2:14 victory in the road race. Emma Cumming finished second with Lucy Timpany earning a bronze medal.

Derek Tan kicked clear of Alistair Burnett to take a four second win in the Masters 35-44 Men with Andrew Lienert third across the line, while Neil Familton timed his final sprint to perfection to jump in front of Steve Brough in the final metres to take the gold. Aaron Sinclair claimed bronze, just five seconds later. 

Erin Criglington was again in little difficulty in the Masters Women's grade, adding another gold to her collection with a 1:15 victory over Shirlene Rollo, with Sam Kopae taking the third medal. Aimee Burns took out the Elite Women's title from Sequoia Cooper while Luke Macpherson and Josh Haggerty made it a time trial/road race double in the Elite Men and Under 19 Men respectively, Haggerty taking the sprint finish from Liam Aitcheson with Nick Kergozou earning the under 19 bronze.

Attention now switches to the Club Road Nationals to be held in Queenstown from April 18 to 21.



6/04/2013 - The 2013 Southland Time Trial Championships were held on near perfect conditions on McQuarrie Street today. 44 riders tested themselves against the clock with some eye-catching rides, two weeks out from the Club Road Nationals in Queenstown.

Titles were handed out across 13 age categories, from Under 13 to Masters 6 with the challenging Gorge Road course providing a key benchmark for riders eyeing nationals.

Josh Miller started the day, pipping Hunter Gough by less than two seconds over their 10 kilometre Under 13 time trial, while Madeleine Gough completed the fastest 10km of the day, winning the Under 15 Girls in 22:42.

Hamish Keast turned in another strong ride in winning the Under 15 boys event by more than a minute, averaging 34.77 km/h to take gold ahead of Corbin Strong and Samuel Miller. Mary Marshall and Peter Grandiek also both earned deserved gold medals in the Masters 6 category, completing their 15 kilometres in 31:00 and 37:36 respectively.

Makayla Smith turned in one of the rides of the day to win the Under 17 girls 15km time trial by over three minutes. Her time of 25:51 saw her average a shade under 35 km/h to earn the gold medal with Alex Bodle taking silver and Lucy Timapany bronze.

The Under 17 boys medals were decided by mere seconds. Tom Sexton shaded Brayden Stephens by four seconds to take gold with a winning time over 15 kilometres of 23:56 (37.6km/h) while Hayden Strong and Hamish Beadle were seperated by a solitary second in the battle for bronze. Strong snuck in front for the final medal in 25:05.

Kate Wilson took out the Under 19 Women's event in 30:14 while Luke Macpherson, fresh from his impressive runner-up finish in the Vital Signs Tour de Lakes, took out the Elite Men's gold over 40 kilometres, averaging 41.75km/h in recording 57:29.

Erin Criglington cut out her 25 kilometres to win the Masters Women gold by nearly three minutes in 41:07 (36.48 km/h) with Kylea Gough earning silver in a gutsy performance, given recent illness, and Sam Kopae pipping Shirlene Rollo for bronze.

Sier Vermunt could lay claim to the ride of the day, recording the fastest Masters time of the day in winning the 45-plus category. He averaged 39.7 km/h to record 37:47 with Neil Familton breathing down his neck in second, just five seconds adrift and Andrew Ward taking bronze in 40:05. Derek Tan took out the 35-44 Masters in 37:49 with Andrew Lienert taking silver.

Junior World Track team mates Josh Haggerty and Liam Aitcheson pushed each other all the way to the line in the Under 19 Men. After 25 kilometres, Haggerty took gold by 17 seconds with a winning time of 35 minutes (42.86 km/h average speed) with Aitcheson winning silver and Nick Kergozou bronze.

The Southland Road Championships conclude with the Road Race Championships at Te Tipua on Sunday.

Kylie Young defended her Senior Women's crown while Josh Haggerty backed up from his dominant time trial on Saturday to also take out the road race from a gallant Nick Kergozou-De La Boess.

The Under 17 Girld saw one of the best finishes of the day as Jen Muhl edged ahead of Georgia Vessey in a sprint finish down Wyndham's Main Street.

2011 Time Trial Championships

Simon Croom on his way to winning the 2011 Southland Time Trial Champs26/03/2011 - The Southland Road Championships began today with the Time Trial Champs held on the Waianawa Circuit. Persistent rain made for trying conditions as Southland titles were handed out across 13 different age group categories.

The early junior races saw comfortable wins for Maddy Gough, Lachlan and Bronwyn Graham and Liam Haggerty, who transfered his strong track form onto a blistering ride on the road. The Under 17 Girls saw one of the closest battles of the day, Jen Muhl shading Georgia Vessey by just 11 seconds, while Josh Haggerty took his younger brother's lead to dominate his fellow Under 17 riders.

Sarah Tomlinson was crowned Under 19 Women's champion while there were three clear cut Masters winners - Erin Criglington (Women), Ray Robinson (45+) and Derek Tan (35-44). Tan's time was particularly impressive, being the fastest recorded for three laps for the whole day.

Kylie Young took the Senior Women win while Mat Zenovich took out the Under 19 Men's title with Tom Vessey, Jamie Culling and Paddy Daly fighting it out for the other podium spots. The Senior Men's race was controlled from start to finish by Simon Croom, who finished nearly a minute ahead of his closest rival.

Cycling Southland hosted its annual Southland Road Race Championships over the weekend in blustery but mainly fine conditions with titles being handed out across 13 age-group categories.

Saturday featured an individual time trial, out and back on the Gorge Road Highway, while Sunday saw riders complete circuits over Mabel Bush, Hedgehope, Springhills circuit.

The weekend was notable for the return of World Cup gold medallist Tom Scully who continued his return following an injury-induced layoff, by doubling up to claim both Senior Men’s titles. He was pushed hard on both days by Scott Cunningham who finished just three seconds behind Scully in the 40 kilometre time trial. Cunningham pushed hard in the road race breaking away solo to lead by nearly a minute at one stage before Scully and impressive Under 19 Men’s winner Blake Tait-Jones closed him down over the final 30 kilometres, Scully winning the final sprint.

Other notable performances included a powerful finish by Scully’s coach Jerard Stock to win the Masters 35-44 Men’s race and a strong three-man breakaway by Neil Familton (1st), Dave Beadle (2nd) and Dave Watkins (3rd) in the Masters 45+ road race. The three worked well together to stay away and share the medals.

Kylie Young and Erin Criglington proved their favouritism tags were well-deserved, winning both events in the Senior and Masters Women categories respectively. Double victories were also completed by Kelsey Timpany (under 19 Women), Matt Zenovich (Under 17 Boys), Michael Culling (Under 15 Boys), Hayden Strong (Under 13 Boys) and Madeleine Gough (Under 13 Girls).

Cycling Southland’s club racing programme takes a break this weekend with the club hosting the 26th Yunca Junior Tour being held from Friday to Sunday with a record field of over 160 junior riders.
