New Plymouth's Darry Stevens won a thrilling Normanby block cycle handicap race, timing his sprint to perfection.

After attacking on top of the Tokaora Hill south of Hawera, Stevens dashed clear to win the 42km event from Hawera rider Dean Hunt, with Hawera's Michael Lock third.

The scratch bunch had controlled the race over much of the closing stages but after Lock's initial dig, Stevens took over and the 32-year-old had no problem taking the sprint, clocking fastest time of one hour, eight minutes, 46 seconds from Lock (1hr 9min 3sec) and Grant Dean (1hr 9min 12sec).
