New Zealand title to Burgos BH

New Zealand title to Burgos BH

Burgos BH will wear the new unique national champion jersey in the upcoming matches. Aaron Gate continues his unbeaten form and won the long distance event of the New Zealand Championships this morning. The elder Bistart soon launched an attack in the first cuts that chose the race and was the strongest of the runners who played for victory in the sprint, defeating many competitors from the world teams. Burgos BH added their second win of the season and after wins at the New Zealand Classic and Adelaide Nations Cup, Kate is looking for another win of the year.

The New Zealand Championship covered a total of 196 kilometers and was held on a circuit around the town of Timaru. The attacks of the main favorites did not wait and Aaron Gate broke away from the second race group, which ran a minute behind the leaders. His teammate in the platoon, George Jackson, was waiting for the opportunity. The Gate team managed to contact the fugitives, however, on the last lap, there were fresh attacks and the chase continued.

Six kilometers from the finish line, on the last climb of the day, the two groups came together again, leading to a final run between the race's seven strongest. Under heavy rain, Kate showed all her speed to take the win. The New Zealander, who is the national time trial champion in 2021 and 2023, adds the national road title to his record. After this victory, Burgos BH will have in its squad the current national champions New Zealand, Mongolia (Jumbaljumts Sinpire) and Greece (Georgios Bouglas).
