Gilmore wins in 2009
Rochelle Gilmore in strong team display
Cronulla, Sydney, NSW, 13 December 2009
Rochelle Gilmore (Honda Dream Team), controlled the Cronulla GP, and got the result the team wanted. The race really warmed up in the last 5 laps, with the Honda Dream Team doing much of the work on the front. Gilmore had the perfect lead out from her team to win. Megan Dunn was close on her wheel for second, ahead of Gilmore's team mates; Chloe Hoksing and leader of the team's 'train', Tiffany Cromwell.
There were a number of attacks during the 24km race, notably from Amanda Spratt, who is just retuning from a knee injury and Megan Dunn, a six time junior world champion.Gilmore's team mate, Tiffany Cromwell, led from the front in the final lap at the front of the team's train, to ensure that no one else was able to gain any advantage.
Cromwell peeled off with half a lap to go and allowed Hosking to take Gilmore to the line.
Dunn, without any teammates, had to settle for second. Chloe Hosking, who is just stepping up into the professional ranks in the 2010 season with Team Columbia, showed that she will be a strong lead out rider for the future. Tiffanny Cromwell, despite leading up the hill on the final lap, showed her class and endurance with a strong finish too.
