Roulston and Cheatley win in Christchurch

3:26 pm on 5 December 2010

Pro Tour rider Hayden Roulston sprinted his way to the Festival of Cycling road race honours in Christchurch.

Roulston closed out Jo Cooper in the sprint finish to claim the honours in the 80-kilometre harbour ride, which doubles as a round of the National Points Series.

Fellow Commonwealth Games teammate Cath Cheatley made it three wins in a row in the women's race after breaking away over the Port Hills.

Cheatley, this week voted the number one road racer in the USA this year, was in a class of her own, winning by almost two minutes.
