The Black Spoke Bolton Equities team celebrated a brilliant performance in the Baloise Belgium Tour, the UCI 2Pro five-stage tour that finished in Beringen today.
Aaron Gate climbed into the top-10 on general classification with Ryan Christensen 24th overall, and Logan Currie sixth in the Young Rider classification.
The team finished eighth overall in the team honours, the leading Continental Team and ahead of four UCI WorldTour combinations.
Meanwhile Gate’s fellow New Zealand rider in next month’s Commonwealth Games, Georgia Williams has finished second in the ITT on stage two of the Tour de Suisse, 14 seconds behind teammate Kristen Faulkner.
It moves her to third overall and her Team BikeExchange-Jayco combination to the top of the team standings with two stages remaining.
