Sunshine Coast today secured the Australian Club Premiership Title at the end of the 2003 National Road Cycling Championships raced on Queensland's Sunshine Coast.

The event is Australia's biggest mass-participation cycling event and incorporated the Oceania Road Championships, Australian Masters Road Championships and Club Premiership.

The locals finished with 1437 points to hold off Midland (WA), 1304 points with Carnegie Caulfield (Vic) claiming third place on 1149 points. The majority of Sunshine Coast's points, 1141, came from the masters division with 14 points from junior events. Midland claimed no masters points but did well in both senior elite and junior categories while Carnegie Caulfield gained 651 points in masters and 498 points in senior elite and junior competition.

The final day of racing saw the cyclists take over the Mooloolaba Esplanade where they contested the criterium events over an 800 metre course in front of around six thousand spectators.

The elite women contested 30 minutes and three laps of the course with Victorian Helen Kelly holding on to a slim lead from an attack in the last 15 minutes to claim gold in 33min01sec. Queensland's Lorianne Graham (Astra Brisbane) won the bunch sprint for second with Victorian Elizabeth Williams (Carnegie Caulfield) close behind in third.

The men's event went to 41 year old West Australian Hilton McMurdo (Northern Districts) in a time of 1hr04min22sec. McMurdo powered away 35 minutes into the race and by the finish had almost lapped the field. Queensland's Ashley Hutchinson (Cairns) won the bunch sprint for second and Sydney's Liam Kelly (Randwick) was third.
