Organiser's media release
Women ride into Noosa history
Women's Noosa Grand Prix, 3rd November 2007
As part of the birthday celebrations for the Noosa Triathlon Multi Sport Festival, the women are set to scorch the streets with the inaugural Cannibal Women’s Grand Prix cycling. With $5000 in prize money up for grabs, the competition is bound to be fierce.
For many years we’ve seen the men light up Noosa Parade, but now it is the women’s turn to show us what they are made of.
Saturday 3 November, 2007 on the legendary Noosa hotdog course, Australia’s best women’s riders will lay it all on the line in 30 minutes and three laps of fast and furious racing.
Olympic road race champion Sara Carrigan, AIS riders Alexis Rhodes and Lorian Graham head up the star studded field that also includes former elite triathletes, now cyclists Nikki Egyed (Raleigh Lifeforce
Creation) and Josie Loane (AIS). Egyed and Loane know all about Noosa in terms of swim, ride and run, now it is their turn to mix it up in the chaos of the criterium.
Close in, wheel to wheel, with heart rates maxed out and thousands of spectators screaming, the women are about to find out what the men have known for awhile… if the heat is on in Noosa, there is no room to hide.
When the women roll out to rumble, there are reputations on the line and up for grabs is $5,000 in prize money, guaranteed to go a long way in a post race shopping spree in Hastings Street.
For one woman it will be instant Noosa legend status, as the first winner of the Women’s Noosa Grand Prix, an opportunity that just doesn’t come along every day.
Make sure you're there on Super Saturday afternoon at 3:15pm, for history in the making.
