Kiwi cyclist Bevin sixth in Tour of Norway

NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 21/05/2017

A prominent sprint finish wasn't enough to help Patrick Bevin improve his sixth placing overall at the conclusion of the Tour of Norway.

Bevin sprinted home fourth in the fifth and final stage on Sunday for his Cannondale-Drapac team, showing good energy on the 155km leg from Moss to Oslo.

However, the bunch nature of the finish meant the 26-year-old didn't move up in the general classification.

The World Tour team rider finished 24 seconds behind Norwegian tour winner Edvald Boasson Hagen, who also clinched victory in the final stage.
