Race 2

Portarlington, 40 minutes plus 3 laps


Race Writeup

Seventeen-year-old Port Macquarie rider Lauren Kitchen riding for the NSWIS/Degani Café team has surprised her more experienced rivals to take the Portarlington leg of the women’s division of the 2008 Jayco Bay Cycling Classic today.


I’ve got photos of all these girls on my wall. It’s an amazing feeling to come through over the top of these girls – it is something I have been dreaming about,” a clearly delighted young rider told the large and enthusiastic crowd that had gathered along the testing 1.2km circuit.


It was really tough today with the wind and the climbs but I put my head down, had some belief in myself and it all came though for me.


It was a day for the teenagers, with junior track star Josephine Tomic (Pitcher Partners) and yesterday’s surprise packet Megan Dunn both part of a six women breakaway that cleared out half way through the 40 minute and three lap race, and was never threatened thereafter.


Triple world junior champion Tomic took third, whilst Dunn’s fourth spot, lifted her to second place in the overall classification behind another Pitcher Partners’ rider Alexis Rhodes whose solo efforts to catch the tearaways over the last few laps netted her the four points she needed to retain the lead going into the third stage at Ritchie Boulevard in Geelong.
