Auckland cyclist Mike Northey has won the 2012 PowerNet Tour of Southland. He was 17 seconds behind Tour leader American Carter Jones (Bissell Pro Cycling).
Led by Calder Stewart's Hayden Roulston and Michael Vink, a break was made early and Northey and his Node 4-Subaru teammates made sure it was one they weren't going to miss.
The final stage was reduced from 87km to 79km, with the four laps of Queens Park reduced to one.
Vink had earlier won the morning's time trial in Winton and said, while that had not earned him much in terms of time, it had added to his confidence.
