Patrick Bevin, the reigning New Zealand national time trial champion, is a great asset when it comes to individual and team time trials. In 2018, Bevin recorded five top ten ITT or prologue finishes, including four at UCI WorldTour level and eighth at the UCI World Time Trial Championships. He was also part of the winning team time trial teams at the Tour de France and Tirreno-Adriatico.
Bevin has also shown his versatility at stage races where he can not only play a vital support role but he can also race for his own results with a series of top ten stage finishes on his palmarès. Most recently, Bevin dominated the Santos Tour Down Under in January where he claimed the first UCI WorldTour win of his career. Bevin sprinted to victory on stage two, followed by a fifth and second place on stages three and four, during which time he led the race for four days. Bevin lined up for the final day of racing despite a nasty crash on stage five, but his injuries ultimately proved too severe to be able to defend the ochre jersey. Nonetheless, Bevin finished as the winner of the Sprint Classification, a testament to his consistency throughout the week.
