Scott Lyttle led the charge for the amateurs when a Dunedin-based team beat the professionals in the Tour of Selwyn on Sunday.
Riding for the the Cycle Surgery-Scott team, Lyttle went with James McCoy (Canterbury) when the latter broke off the front with two laps to go.
Lyttle made his break for home on the final corner, 2km from the finish, and beat McCoy home by 25sec in 4hr 01min 12sec.
Three riders count for the teams event and the Dunedin contingent took first place when Tom Scully finished fifth and Mark Spessot sixth.
They beat Gordon McCauley's professional road outfit, the only professional team in New Zealand road cycling.
McCauley finished a disappointing seventh but still leads the series with 59 points.
Lyttle and Spessot (both on 25) are ranked seventh and eighth.
