The race went past the end of our sreet 12 times today and a huge crowd watched as NZ’s best riders battled up the hill.

The rider in the orange helmet is Julian Dean, who had a couple of placings in the Tour de France this year. The race winner was Hadyn Roulston so we will be able to easily find him in the Tour de France field this year as he will wear the NZ jersey.
