Down but Not Out
Greg Henderson won the 6.25 mile New York City Cycling Championship in miserable conditions, despite suffering a crash half way through the race. “Anything can happen in a crash. It all depends on how you land,” said Henderson. “The first thing we saw today was the rain, and you’re two weeks out from the Olympics so you don’t want to crash. And what happens? 30km into the race I crash.” Five other Olympians, including fellow Kiwi Hayden Godfrey, competed in the prestigious event.
