Dylan Kennett proved too powerful when he took line honours in the St Andrews Classic near Waimate.
The 45km handicap race saw Kennett ride with Tim Rush, Andy Van der Hayden and Glen Gould on the 25-minute mark.
The quartet rode strongly to catch the break group of seven riders within the first 20km before slowly catching other outward riders.
The front two groups, including John Blunden, Carl Finnigan and Peter Sutton, were riding well together and were only caught inside the last 2km.
Kennett's class prevailed inside the last 500m when he sprinted clear of Rush and van der Heyden to win in 1hr 20s.
The 10km novice race was won by Chase Domigan who outsprinted his sister, India, to win in a time of 26 minutes.
