Meredith Miller out of Bay Series
American, Meredith Millar collided with a car and will no longer be able to race with the Mercure Geelong team in this years Jayco Bay Classic.
Meredith was descending a hill when a car U-turned in front of her. Fortunately, rather than t-boning the car, she managed to swerve and impacted the car side on.
After nine hours Meredith was discharged from hospital with her arm in a cast, torn thumb ligaments, severely bruised ribs and superficial wounds.
She won’t be able to race this years Bay Crits but has expressed her desire to race next year. “I’ve been wanting to race in the series, its getting bigger and bigger each year. With the quality of the Aussie girls, its very competitive racing,” says the Californian who races in Europe with the SATS professional women’s cycling team.
The Bay Crits were part of Meredith’s preparations for the Geelong Women’s World Cup that will hopefully see her join American Road Cyclist of the Year Tina Pic in the Lloyd Morgan Recruitment team.
