Last Sunday one of our Elite Women riders Nikolina Orlic was invited to compete in the Herald Sun World Cycling Classic in Ballarat which was used by many of the world's best as a warm up for the Worlds.

Nikolina, riding with her Sweet As.. Bundaberg Sugar teammates, did well to finish 54th out of 130 amongst riders from 14 countries. Nik said she stayed with the main bunch until the last climb at 5km to go and finished 1 minute behind the main bunch and that it was an amazing experience to race against the world's best female cyclist's.

The race was won by Trixi Worrack from Germany from a small 4 rider breakaway with 3 riders bridging across.
