New Zealand Criterium Championships 2008
Malindi McLean takes title
Christchurch, New Zealand, 09 December 2007
Malindi McLean backed up her win at the Peugeot Festival of Cycling Criterium last week in Christchurch with a win today. Riding in her Jazz Apples team the Auckland rider was followed closely behind by former NZ rider and Commonwealth games medalist Susy Pryde. Kerri-Ann Torckler was a popular third riding in front of a home crowd.
In the Under 19 Women's event, Emma Peterson continued her outstanding year with another Gold medal and national title to add to her already impressive haul in 2007.
With the help of funding from the Lion Foundation, organisers set the scene for the hundreds of spectators at the event with a large screen at the start/finish area that provided footage from vantage points throughout the inner city circuit.
Racing at the start of the day in windy conditions was the Under 17 Girls. The majority of the race was dominated by a group of North Harbour riders lead by Libby Morrison Jones. Wellington’s Zoe Anderson put an outstanding sprint in the last lap to win the Gold medal.
