NZ Takeover in US

New Zealanders Joanne Kiesanowski, 31, and Catherine Cheatley, 27, who represented New Zealand at the 28 Olympics in Beijing, finished first and second, respectively, in the 1-lap Senior Women’s Category 1-2 event at the Grand Cycling Classic in Grand Rapids, Michigan. While Patrick Bevin, 19, a member of the hometown Bissell Pro Cycling Team — who moved to the US from his native New Zealand a year ago — won the Men’s Pro 1 race of 9 minutes plus 1 laps. Kiesanowski was also a member of the 24 New Zealand Olympic team in Athens. “Grand Rapids put on a great race,” Kiesanowski said. “I was definitely hoping to break away with Catherine, my fellow New Zealander, but there was a quality field racing today.”
