Series Preview    (Wednesday 3rd January 2007 - Sunday 7th January 2007)

Criterium Series - Port Phillip Bay Area, Melbourne, Australia 


The Bay Series starts 2007 - there are five criteriums in five days and the racing is fast..... this is a 'heartstarter'. Riders come to the event expecting serious competition and in the knowledge that anyone with an eye on the Australian National Championships a week later will arrive at the Bay Series with good legs!

The race format is for teams, although an individual winner is crowned at the end of the series too. The entry for 2007 is strong, with Katie Mactier, the 2006 Champion, back in action with a different team this year - Portfolio Partners. Her team includes local rider and fellow trackie, Tess Downing and a couple of Kiwis: Jo Kiesanowski and Catherine Sell. 

The Jayco VIS team is led in 2007 by Jenny Macpherson (in Mactier's absence), with the support of Emma Rickards, the experienced Euro pro and local, Jessica Berry. They are backed up by the young Australian junior representative, Peta Mullens.

Belinda Goss leads the Volvo team for the second year running, with support coming from Briana James from Victoria and South Australians, Tiffany Cromwell and Bianca Rogers.

A very strong Pitcher Partners team is led by Kate Bates (Australian road champion), alongside sister, Natalie Bates (Commonwealth Games road champion), Alexis Rhodes (Australian criterium champion), Olivia Gollan (ex-Australian road champion and National team regular at Worlds, Commonwealth Games and Olympics), plus rising star and experienced Australian National team member at only 19, Amanda Spratt.

Hit Racing is a Queensland based team, led by Emma Mackie, who spent time in Europe in 2006 with the Australian National team and finished the year with the DSB Bank team (which was led by Mariane Vos - current World road champion). With her is another Queenslander who has represented Australia in Europe, Kate Mercer.

New South Wales Institute of Sport (NSWIS) is led by Sky-Lee Armstrong, who although also young, is very experienced on the road and track and who won the race in Williamstown in 2005, to take the series lead with an audacious breakaway in the wet conditions.

Also of note is an entry from the New Zealand National Team.
