Report from Ladies Captain Karen Forster:
There were 42 winners at Round 2 of HPRW's Nicol Jackson Women's Series on Saturday 27th July. Through the generosity of our event partners Winners Sports Nutrition every woman who competed in the Individual Time Trial held at Closeburn was rewarded with a Winner's Bar made from Cadel's own recipe to power them on to victory and of course the long ride home. This year we saw records fall in every grade - could it have been the Winners Bars ?
Riding the race of TRUTH on a 20 km course which features rolling hills and heavy roads and having the ability to push yourself to the edge and hold it there was not an "easy" day in the office for anyone, however the ladies well and truly stepped up.
· A grade was taken out in a red hot time by Katrin Garfoot who completed the 20 km distance in 30.06 sec. (Course Record!)
· B grade's winner was 3 day licence holder Emma Coman-Jeffries (a regular on the triathlon scene), with a time of 33.45 sec. (Course Record!)
· The C grade event was hotly contested and taken out by Rachel Khoo in 35.36. (Course Record!)
· D grade had a standout performance again by Julie Rappo who finished over 2mins ahead of her nearest competitors with a time of 36.07 sec. (Course Records!)
Caroline Jones from Lifecycle was the lucky recipient of a custom bike fit valued at $300 from Cycle Physio -and thanks to their generosity we have another one to give away in Round 3.
