Luke Macpherson claimed the major honour in week one of the Wednesday Worlds road cycling event this week.

The newlayout is a 30km route starting and finishing at Rimu School.
Macpherson covered the 30km in 43min 20sec, finishing ahead of Josh Haggerty and Matt Zenovich who were placed second and third respectively.
In the B-grade Andrew Holden took out the win in a time of 46min 15sec ahead of Andrew Lienert and Aaron Sinclair. Gabby Vermunt was fourth home in the B-grade and the first overall female.
Promising young cyclist Hamish Keast win the C-grade in 48min 30sec, with Tony Raggett second and Max Anderson third.
It is the first year Cycle Surgery had come on board as the major sponsor and organiser Tony Ineson thanked them for their support and also previous sponsor Wensley Worlds for their contribution over the years.
