In 2000 as a Junior Marc set a New Zealand record in the IP and was also National Champ for the Points race, and Team Pursuits (TP). From here to the present day, Marc has continued these impressive results achieving creditable placing’s in World Cup events, World Track Championships, Oceania events, and becoming a National Champion in the Road Time Trial and National Criterium. Last year Marc was 2nd in the Tour of Southland, achieved a stage win and was a member of the winning team. Due to his heavy commitment to the New Zealand team for Bejiing Marc may miss a few of the Rounds in the Benchmark Series this year but you can bet that when he is there his presence will be felt by everyone
