Brough finished in 5hr 57min 20sec – a 2min winning margin in his division.

Twenty-one Wakatipu riders cycled either the Epic or the 95km Contact Classic – Lesley Logan won the Epic’s veteran female title in 7:18.56, 11min ahead. Mark Williams took third in the Epic’s open male division in 5:15.20, 8min behind the winner and ahead of fourth-placed hotshot Marcus Roy.

Central Otago’s Kath Kelly won the open women’s in 5:46.36.
