Manawatu riders lighting up world and national stages

What a fantastic few days Bike Manawatu riders have had, with outstanding results on both the national and international stages.

Jesse Sergent did us proud in the opening stage of the Giro d’Italia, a 9km individual time trial, when he was ninth in the 198-strong field. On an extremely technical course, with 17 corners, Sergent was the second-fastest rider when he finished his ride, just four seconds off the leader’s time. He retained that position until the final 20 riders.
