2012 Road Nationals Sheryl Duncan successfully defends her National title
At the beginning of May, the National champs where hosted by the Ramblers club (Hastings). Most of our junior riders competed along with Wayne McConarchy & Darren Hume. Sam Dobbs, Corby Price and Claire Hume all had very solid rides. The highlight of the weekend was Sheryl Duncan defending her road title.
Sheryl: “The TT didn’t go so well for me but glad I got the chance to make up for it at the Road Race. The race for me went something like this - went hard from the gun, kept it together on the hills (which hadn't got any easier and hurt just as much as 2 years ago) this is also where the main break of 6 riders happened on the first of 2 laps, we pretty much lapped it out and stayed together for the rest of the 2nd lap and managed to take the sprint finish over the line, very happy to bring home a gold for Taupo. I know that some of juniors had very tough races, but I felt they still gave their best and represented our club well.”
