Patrick Bevin, a two-time New Zealand national time trial champion, is a great asset when it comes to individual and team time trials. In 2019, Bevin recorded five top-10 ITT or prologue finishes, including four at UCI WorldTour level and a fourth-place finish at the UCI World Time Trial Championships. In previous years, Bevin was also part of the winning team time trial teams at the Tour de France and Tirreno-Adriatico. He has shown his versatility at stage races where he can play a vital support role and also race for his own results. He dominated the 2109 Santos Tour Down Under, where he claimed the first UCI WorldTour win of his career. Bevin sprinted to victory on Stage 2, followed by a fifth and second place on Stages 3 and 4, 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, he finished as the winner of the Sprint Classification, a testament to his consistency throughout the week.
