Hemsley Victorious in Showpiece Finale to Jayco Geelong Bay Classic

Margeret Hemsley, who rode so bravely to finish the Commonwealth Games RR in August after falling and breaking her collarbone, showed a return to form with a stylish solo attack around the Crown Casino circuit in Melbourne's centre today. The bunch sprint was led in by consistent finisher in this series Kate Bates. Mactier took third, whilst Rochelle Gilmore was unable to finish - having previously suffered with illness in Race 2. 

Bates Takes Title

Thanks to her consistency, Kate Bates took the Series title and despite leading the Sprints competition going into the final race, only managed one further point during Race 5. Olivia Gollan took victory in this competition, having gained 6 points during Race 5 to give her 15 points overall, to Bates' 13 overall.
