Wanganui's Dick Tracy pulled off a perfectly timed attack to win the Hawera Cycling Club's Kaponga Block cycle handicap race in Normanby on Saturday.
The veteran attacked on the final climb into Normanby, to beat teammates Warrick Gibson and Mike Picard in the 50km race.
Defending champion Mike Lock, of Hawera, struggled to get on terms with the course, losing time in the second half of the race.
